Nokia (now Microsoft) was usually the only Windows Phone OEM that screamed FIRST when it came to introducing new hardware features; the first with wireless charging, the first with a 60 Hz refresh rate display, the first with a glove-friendly capacitive screen etc. But soon, Alcatel – of all OEM’s – will get their chance to take the spotlight by introducing the first ever Windows Phone with a 64-bit processor.
The Alcatel Pop 2 is a low-budget device that comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core 64-bit processor running at 1.2GHz, aided by the Adreno 306 GPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, in addition to a 4.5" 854x480 display, a 4MP rear facing camera, a 2000 mAh battery, dual-SIM and LTE support.
The handset will come in a variety of colors to choose from and will be available for 119 Euros. Unfortunately, there is no news yet about release and region availability. Check out the hand-on video of the Alcatel Pop 2 below.
