The Chinese company TCL intends to maintain its line of budget models and in 2017, the first phone for the new year comes with the brand Alcatel and is called A3 XL.

If you need to define one of his characteristics, this will undoubtedly be his large 6-inch IPS display. It is located in a housing with dimensions of 165 x 82.5 x 7.9 mm.

Unsurprisingly, is made from not expensive materials, but unfortunately despite its huge diagonal display has only HD resolution so that the image quality may not be as good as other models with smaller displays.


The processor is 4-core MediaTek MT8735B, clocked at 1.1 GHz. Power is not a priority because the RAM is only 1 GB RAM, and built-in storage space – only 8 GB.

The back camera has a fairly modest 8 MP and only shoots video in 720p while his front shooter is 5 MP. Interestingly there is presence of a fingerprint sensor that provides better security.

Among other features are Wi-Fi/n, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2 and OTG the phone will run Android 7.0 Nougat. Alcatel A3 XL will go on sale in the second quarter of 2017. His price comes at $200, which converts to about £164 and AU$277.
