Alcatel One Touch POP Astro – Specifications, Price and Release

Here’s one deal you shouldn’t miss when you’re looking for a budget friendly phone for your kids.  Alcatel has released their One Touch POP Astro via T-Mobile in the United States.  At barely $150 (MSRP) or a 2-year plan of $6.24 per month, you can get your child an affordable handset.  Other than T-Mobile, Alcatel has also opened this offer to their chosen retail stores nationwide starting from April 29.

Looking at the specs, one can say that POP Astro fits its communication (or educational) purpose to a T.  The 4.5-inch qHD display with 960×540 pixels resolution with 132.75 x 65.4 x 9.95 mm dimensions match the little hands of child.  Just be reminded, install the right security measures and apps on this device and to help you with that, click on this link for smart, bright ideas.


Moving on, we can also see a decent MediaTekMT6732 chipset clocking at 1.5GHz with quadcore ARM Cortex-A53 processor.  If your kids want to play games, the ARM Mali-T750 enhances graphical experience.  Lights won’t be out until the 2000 mAh battery runs out of juice.  That’s 8.5 hours of talk time and 10 days of standby time. Picture perfect memories can be captured by the decent—if not impressive—5megapixel sensor of the primary snapper.  However, selfies are expected to have a not-so-extraordinary quality from a 0.3MP VGA up front.
