Documents recently published to the FCC web site show what is likely the Alcatel Idol 5, which has not yet been formally announced by TCL. A device with the model name 6058 was cleared by the FCC for operation in the U.S. The model number is very close to that of the Alcatel Idol 5S, which is the 6060. Further, the draft user manual included in the FCC documents refers to the device as the Idol 5. The photos clearly show a semi-premium device with glass panels and a metal frame, and the Idol brand is etched into the phone casing. A camera, flash, and fingerprint sensor are located on the rear of the phone, while a user-facing camera is plainly visible on front. Other aspects shown in the FCC's images include a 3.5mm headphone jack, SIM/memory card tray, and microUSB port. The draft manual suggests the phone runs the Android operating system, which is common to Alcatel phones, but does not reveal any other features of the phone. The FCC documents confirm the 6058 supports Bluetooth and WiFi, as well as several LTE bands used by U.S. carriers. Despite the branding, the 6058 does not appear to be a smaller version of the Alcatel Idol 5S. It doesn't include stereo speakers, nor the same design language as the Idol 5S. This breaks with Alcatel's device naming conventions over the last few years. TCL has not officially shared details concerning the 6058.
