New rumours have indicated that Alcatel
is set to launch a new 7-inch tablet, the One Touch Pop, based on a leaked image.
The leaked image claims to reveal the upcoming tablet from Alcatel, and has been leaked by prolific tipster, @evleaks on Google+ feed. The leaked images show the alleged One Touch Pop tablet in different colour variants in dual-tone, with a white front panel and differently-hued rear panels. The leaked image suggests that the rumoured One Touch Pop would feature a sleek form-factor, and would be running an unidentifiable version of Android OS. The display of the alleged One Touch Pop tablet is seen with Alcatel's smartphone UI which also houses Google Play store. As of now, except the device's name, nothing else about the tablet (such as availability, pricing and specifications) has been revealed by the tipster.
Alcatel has been a low-profile competitor in the tablet segment and mainly targets the budget Android tablet market. Alcatel unveiled its first tablet, the One Touch Evo 8 HD at IFA in September this year.

It comes with 4GB of inbuilt storage which can be expanded up to 64GB with the help of microSD card. The tablet comes 3G and 4G connectivity options as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and Micro-USB. Alcatel One Touch Evo 8 HD comes with a 4160mAh battery that can deliver up to 200 hours of standby time with a charging time of 3.5 hours.
