Alcatel Idol 5S with Helio P20 SoC & Android 7.0 Nougat Spotted on Geekbench



The Alcatel Idol series is known for offering smartphones with high-end specifications at affordable pricing. Last year, the company unveiled the Idol 4 and Idol 4S smartphone at the MWC 2016. At the upcoming MWC 2017, the company might unveil their successor Idol 5 and Idol 5S smartphones. Today, the Alcatel Idol 5S is listed on Geekbench with few little specifications. Just like its successor, the Idol 5S might come with an affordable price tag. Based on the benchmark details, the device runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It offers stock Android UI but comes with a few bloatware apps.

It will be powered by the MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processor clocked at 1.69GHz. The Idol 5S also includes 3GB of RAM which us good enough for playing graphic intensive games. It has scored 824 on single-core and 3421 on multi-core tests. TCL, the owner of the Alcatel brand also launched the Blackberry Mercury smartphone at the upcoming MWC event. It comes with a full-size Qwerty keyboard and a touchscreen as well. Last year’s Alcatel Idol 4S came with a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) AMOLED display. It is powered by Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 510 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

The device includes 32GB of internal storage that can be further expandable using the hybrid SIM slot. On the camera front, there is a 16MP rear camera with PDAF and an 8MP front camera for Selfies. Both the front and rear cameras also feature the LED flash. It is backed by a 3,000mAh battery and has the Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support. At the time of launch, it came with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The Idol 4S is also equipped with a fingerprint sensor. It supported dual SIM dual standby and offered all the basic connectivity features. Now, the upcoming Idol 5S might also share few similar specifications.

It offered good sound output with the dual front facing stereo speaker. The Idol 4S sports a metallic frame with glass on front and back of the device. Apart from the volume rocker and power button, the device features additional hardware button called as Boom Key. We expect the upcoming Idol 5S also includes this button. The user can create the shortcuts for frequently used apps using this Boom Key. It can also be an SOS button in emergency cases. Just like its predecessor, the Idol 5S might come with slim body, and we hope the company uses metal instead of glass on the back. Since the MWC 2017 is just a couple of weeks away, stay tuned on PhoneRadar for regular updates about the upcoming smartphones from MWC.
