Unannounced Alcatel Allura Headed to AT&T
The FCC this week approved and made public the Alcatel one touch Allura, an unannounced Android phone for AT&T. The technical model number (5056) suggests a phone very similar to the Fierce XL (5054) for MetroPCS. The Fierce XL is a $139 phone at MetroPCS; it has a 5.5-inch screen, Snapdragon 210 processor, 8-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel front camera, and a memory card slot. FCC documents show that the Allura supports AT&T's LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12 (17), and 30. The only Alcatel smartphone phone previously sold by AT&T was the C1, a considerably lower-end model. That makes the Allura a notable step forward for Alcatel's relationship with AT&T, the country's second-largest carrier.
