Alcatel to launch $70 smartphone running Marshmallow
Alcatel, the mobile brand of TCL communications, just introduced a new feature for UAE smartphone users that will allow them to run separate WhatsApp accounts for each number on their dual-SIM Android phone.
This feature, called app cloning, will be available on selected Alcatel devices that have dual SIM capabilities as well running Android Marshmallow. Thanks to this feature, users can now easily run one WhatsApp account for their personal number and a separate account for their work number on a single dual-SIM phone from Alcatel. The feature is already active on the new Alcatel POP 4 6” premium phablet, which boasts with a metal design, 6-inch IPS FHD display, and fingerprint recognition technology. It will also come to more Alcatel devices this year.
Apart from just WhatsApp, the app cloning feature supports many of smartphone users’ favourite social media apps such as Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and Twitter. It is especially useful for UAE residents that need different accounts for professional and personal purposes, or for those who are running two businesses from one smartphone.
“The smartphone market in the GCC region is growing rapidly, and we are seeing a consistently increasing demand for dual-SIM smartphones that offer increased flexibility. With more and more of our customers’ communication moving to over-the- top services such as WhatsApp, we acknowledge that many of them now need to be able to run different messaging and social media accounts on dual-SIM card phones,” Ruediger Odenbach, Vice President at Alcatel Middle East & Africa. “With our new solution, you can access WhatsApp messages and calls from both SIMs on one phone without needing to sign out of one account to sign into the other. This feature falls in line with our commitment to offering customers the smoothest possible user experience and delivering innovations that simplify their lives.”
The Alcatel POP 4 6" phablet is available for AED 799.
