Alcatel OneTouch today revealed availability details for its Idol 3 flagship smartphone. Consumers will be able to pre-order the phone directly from Alcatel's web site beginning April 21 for $249. Alcatel said orders will ship in May. The Idol 3 comes in two sizes — 5.5 inches and 4.7 inches — but Alcatel is only offering the larger of the two at this time. The Idol 3 (5.5) has a full HD screen and octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The processor includes four cores at 1.5GHz and four cores at 1.0GHz. The Idol 3 has stereo JBL speakers with Clarify processing and 1.2W amplifiers. The phone is reversible, meaning it can be held in any orientation and the user interface will rotate accordingly. The main camera uses a 13-megapixel Sony sensor that includes a variety of modes and video-capture tools. The phone has an 8-megapixel user-facing camera with wide-angle lens. Connectivity options include LTE and HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.1, FM radio, GPS, and WiFi. The Idol 3 has a 2,910mAh battery and supports microSD cards up to 128 GB. It is being sold unlocked and is compatible with GSM networks. Alcatel didn't say if or when the 4.7-inch model will be made available.
