Alcatel officially announces One Touch Snap and One Touch Snap LTE at MWC

Alcatel is seriously on a roll this year. After announcing 13 devices at CES, followed by the One Touch Idol X, One Touch Scribe Easy and the Firefox OS-powered One Touch Fire, the Chinese maker has now welcomed new additions to the One Touch family, the One Touch Snap and One Touch Snap LTE, reports GSMArena.

Measuring 130.3x67x8.99 mm, the One Touch Snap has a 4.5-inch qHD (540×960) touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, a 1.3-megapixel front camera also capable of shooting 720p videos, 4GB of internal storage (of which 2.4 GB is user-accessible), a microSD card slot and a 1,800 mAh battery which the company claims offers 7h of 3G talk time and 340h on stand-by.

It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Available in China now, Alcatel expects the One Touch Snap to hit European markets by April 2013.

The device comes with Dragontail Glass for protection and oleophobic coating to keep it from becoming a fingerprint magnet. There's optional dual-SIM (Micro-SIM) as well

The LTE version of the device has a different outlook in terms of specs. It has a bigger, 4.65-inch touchscreen but with a lower FWVGA resolution of 480×854 pixels, though it also boasts Dragontail Glass and oleo phobic coating to keep fingerprints at bay. It is also thicker measuring 134x69.6x10.9 mm.

The LTE version's back camera is capable of recording 1080p Full HD videos, while still being 8-megapixel. The front-camera is 2-megapixel.

The Snap LTE is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 1GB RAM and its battery is beefed up to 2,200 mAh. It also comes with 4GB of internal storage (2.4 GB is user-accessible). However, this model runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is expected to be out in July 2013.

Both devices support Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0 and quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900).
