Alcatel today said Amazon.com and Best Buy have agreed to sell four of its low-cost Android smartphones from the Pop and Pixi families. The Pop 4S costs $170, the Pop 4 Plus costs $120, the Pixi 4 (6-inch) costs $120, and the Pixi 4 (5-inch) costs $80. All four handsets are being sold unlocked with support for GSM/LTE networks such as those operated by AT&T and T-Mobile. The phones were announced earlier this year.
Pop is Alcatel's main line of affordable phones. The Pop 4 series breaks little major ground, although the top-end model of the range — the Pop 4S — sports a fingerprint reader.

Alcatel OneTouch offered a sneak peak at what it plans to announce during the CES trade show later this week. The company has fully revised its Pixi 4 series of devices, which comprises three phones with 3.5-, 4-, and 6-inch screens, as well as a tablet with a 7-inch screen.
Motorola's edge 30 fusion — a model that would normally only be sold in other parts of the world — will come to the US as an unlocked phone compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile. This special edition will come in Pantone's just-announced Color of the Year 2023, Pantone 18-1750 "Viva Magenta".
