Alcatel Announces One Touch Scribe X With 5-inch 1080p Display, 12MP Camera [CES 2013]


Following the announcement of its budget smartphone lineup at CES on Monday, Alcatel has today unveiled the flagship device in its new One Touch family. It’s called the One Touch Scribe X, and in addition to its 1080p display, it offers a quad-core processor, and a 12-megapixel camera.

The One Touch Scribe X is a little different to typical offerings from Alcatel. It’s a high-end smartphone, for one, designed to compete with the latest and greatest handsets the Android market has to offer. And on paper, it has all the right ingredients, starting with a 5-inch 1080p display.

The Scribe X also offers a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a front-facing shooter capable of recording 720p video. Alcatel hasn’t revealed specifics about its RAM, internal storage, or battery size. But we’re expecting those to be just as high-end. Otherwise, what’s the point in the full HD display and the quad-core processor?

Alcatel will be showing off the Scribe X at CES this week, so expect to hear more over the days ahead.

In addition to the Scribe X, Alcatel announced the Scribe HD-LTE this morning. The device is almost identical to the Scribe HD that was announced yesterday, but it has 4G LTE connectivity onboard as well.
