Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD, Idol Ultra, and SPop (Glory 2) are coming to the Philippines

Even though Alcatel Mobile Philippines FB page hasn't announced it yet, I'm sure these 3 new recently unveiled smartphones are coming to the Philippine shores. I'm talking about the One Touch Scribe HD, One Touch Idol Ultra, and the One Touch SPop (Glory 2), which were announced by French company Alcatel at the International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2013, and are now shown at Alcatel One Touch Philippines website.
First off is Alcatel's first 5" HD smartphone, the One Touch Scribe HD, it packs a 5" IPS HD LCD capacitive touchscreen (720 x 1280 pixels, 294 ppi) with oleophobic coating for protection, a powerful 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 4GB internal memory which can be expanded through a memory card, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, and a front VGA camera. It will run on Android 4.1 Jellybean. Battery capacity is  at 2,500 mAh which can deliver longer usage.


It will be available in flash red, flash yellow, pure white and black colors.
Next is the Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra, which is currently the thinnest smartphone in the market at 6.45mm thin! It packs a 4.65" HD AMOLED capacitive scratch-resistant touchscreen (1280 x 720 pixels), a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 16GB internal memory (13.3GB user memory, no card slot), 1GB of RAM, a powerful 8MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 1.3MP front camera. It will also run on Android 4.1 Jellybean. Battery capacity is at 1820 mAh.


Package includes the battery, a slim MOU charger, a slim micro-USB cable, a USB adaptor and earphones (no 3.5mm head jack due to its slimness), and the quick user guide.

It will be available in flash yellow, red, and black. 
 
Lastly, the Alcatel One Touch SPop or the One Touch Glory 2 (the local iteration and the successor of Glory) , is the last member of the Pop series. It packs a 3.5" HVGA capacitive touchscreen (320 x 480 pixels, 165 ppi), 1GHz processor, 4GB ROM (2GB user memory, expandable with a memory card), 512MB RAM, and a 3.2MP camera as well as a VGA front camera.

This is a good lineup for Alcatel One Touch Philippines, and I'm sure fans would be delighted, especially for the Idol Ultra and the Scribe HD. But I hope the other Pop phones would make it here also.
