TCL Communication Unveils Two New Accessibly-Priced Alcatel Tablets with Android 8.1 Oreo™ at Mobile World Congress 2018

BARCELONA – February 24, 2018 – TCL Communication has today introduced the all-new Alcatel 1T tablet series as part of the company’s press conference to kick off Mobile World Congress 2018. With two new compact and portable tablets – the Alcatel 1T 10 and Alcatel 1T 7 – this new series is aimed at being affordably priced while offering simple, sleek designs and the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. The Alcatel 1T series continues Alcatel’s legacy of making mobile technology accessible to consumers around the world, particularly in households looking to share entertainment and gaming experiences as a family.

“Today more than ever we count on our mobile devices to keep us connected to the news, people and entertainment we love, and with our all-new Alcatel 1T tablets, we’re giving consumers around the world a fantastic tablet experience,” said Christian Gatti, Global President Alcatel Business Division and Executive Vice President TCL Communication. “Not only are these two of the best tablets we’ve ever made, they’re also two of the most affordable Android Oreo tablets in the market starting at under 100EUR.”

Both tablets feature Kids Mode, a dedicated mode that comes with pre-loaded applications and content, such as games, kids camera, and drawing app, all designed with the youngest members of our families in mind. This mode also comes with an easily manageable built-in parental control interface that gives parents the ability to set usage limits. Also included in the 1T tablet series is Eye Care mode, which is designed to reduce blue light in order to relieve visual fatigue and have the most enjoyable viewing experience possible, regardless of the time of day or night.

ALCATEL 1T 10

Featuring a 10.1-inch IPS display, the Alcatel 1T 10 tablet offers Wi-Fi connectivity and is Alcatel’s newest and most affordable 10-inch tablet ever.  Weighing 415g, it is also the lightest tablet you can get in its size and price range, allowing for greater portability when sharing the device with the entire family. It comes with a 4000mAh battery that will ensure that your family is able to enjoy entertainment, gaming and productivity for 8 hours on one charge, along with 16GB of internal storage and microSD expanded storage up to 128GB. For maximum productivity, an optional dedicated Bluetooth keyboard and textured cover will be available to make typing quicker and easier while providing protection against scratches, drops and dust.

ALCATEL 1T 7

The Alcatel 1T 7 Wi-Fi tablet also comes with an incredibly pocketable form factor and lightweight body, weighing in at 245g and measuring 9.15mm thin, making it ideal for sharing the device within the home. The 2580mAh battery provides up to 430 hours of standby time and 7 hours of usage, so no matter if you and your family are using it for streaming movies, playing a game together or simply doing email and other work.

The Alcatel 1T 10 and Alcatel 1T 7 tablets will be available later in Q2 across Europe, Latin America and Asia, starting at €99,99 and €69,99 respectively. Both tablets will come in Premium Black and Bluish Black color options. For more information, please visit www.alcatelmobile.com.
