Officially Launched

Alcatel TRU now on Sale by MetroPCS at just $29 after $60 Mail-In Rebate



Low- end affordable smartphones have become much better in comparison with the earlier ones we used to have. These days, they pack some serious specifications and offers good value for the money. We have many new affordable smartphones, but this one on another level. We are talking about the new Alcatel TRU. This device costs only $29 off contract. So if you are in need of an incredibly cheap smartphone, then this is the one to choose.

So, when a device is priced at just $29, then you cannot expect anything good out of it. But on the contrary, the Alcatel TRU offers decent specs for the price. It features a 5-inch display with 480 x 854 resolution. This is not going to be a pleasant experience but, what else can you expect for this price. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 CPU clocked at 1.1 GHz and is packed with 1GB of RAM. It comes with 8GB of expandable storage space.

In terms of camera, we are looking at a 2-megapixel front facing shooter and a 5-megapixel rear facing camera with a LED flash. The device is powered by a 2000 mAh battery, which should be good enough to power it easily for an entire da, without any issues because of it’s less power hungry internals. For software, it only runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop, so it is hard to expect the Nougat update here. Also in terms of build quality, it is not poor by any means. It has a “soft noir faux leather back”, which gives it a nice feel.

So looking at the price of the device, it is a great value for money indeed. We have also seen other affordable smartphones as well like the Freedom 251, which retails only for 251 INR in India. But it is safe to stay away that since various speculations are going around it. If you are planning to pick up the Alcatel TRU, then you will be able to find it online at MetroPCS. Stay tuned for more info on this.
