IFA, Berlin, SEPTEMBER 4 – ALCATEL ONETOUCH today introduced the POP 2 family, which comes in a variety of sizes, colours and with rich multimedia functions, demonstrating its commitment to democratising the LTE market by introducing the richest product portfolio in entry-level smartphones.

“Our POP series makes the smartphone experience fun, easy and available to everyone,” said Dan Dery, Chief Marketing Officer for ALCATEL ONETOUCH. “These devices offer a choice for every need, whether that’s streaming, browsing or creating content on the go. The POP 2 family is a proud continuation of this tradition.”

POP 2: LTE made for all

Powered by the new generation of Qualcomm LTE processor, the POP 2 delivers ultra-fast streaming, browsing and multitasking. What’s more, the POP 2 is also equipped with advanced features like a download booster: using two network connections – 4G LTE and Wi-Fi — enables an unparalleled download speed.

In addition, it offers such useful features as one-finger zoom, a mini-apps application that allows use of the phone’s applications without even launching them, plus a feature that reads QR codes, using the camera function, and Wi-Fi display, which lets users send images from their phone to a larger screen.

The POP 2 is also available in a premium edition, with sleeker premium materials, in two sizes: 4.5” and 5”. (See below for precise specs for each of these models.)

The POP 8S: LTE connectivity at a smart price

The POP 2 family also includes an 8-inch tablet, the POP 8S, which features LTE speed at a smart price. Super slim and light, this 4G entry-level tablet adds a splash of colour with its accessories and is perfect for streaming music, watching TV or browsing.

The POP 8S is the most competitive LTE 8-inch entry-level tablet available to the mass market. At 7.9mm thin and weighing only 309 grams it is ideal for carrying in any backpack, satchel or handbag. Powered by a quad-core processor, the POP 8S allows seamless multitasking between gaming, streaming music or browsing. It comes equipped with a 5 Mpxl rear camera (EU) or 3 Mpxl rear camera (LATAM & US) to capture priceless moments on the go.

Smart features and helpful accessories include voice-calling support and dedicated TV companion apps for a fully connected, immersive user experience.
