Alcatel Flash 2: Low Cost, High Performance + First Dibs

ALCATEL. When I received an invite to the launch of their latest mobile phone, it felt like an invitation of a good ol' friend to a quaint catching up. I've pretty cool memories with Alcatel as it was one of my mobile phones in high school! That curvaceous body, 2D design, funky colors, and sturdier-than-rock, can-survive-a-fall-from-the-second-floor build; how could we all forget?

Alcatel had something POWERFUL to unveil so I went to the event just because...memories and I wanted to see for myself what's new with this brand!

THE POWER OF GREEN. In two days, Alcatel will unveil their newest smartphone that will rock the world of Alcatel fans, smartphone enthusiasts, and anyone who's looking for a dope deal.

But why wait for two days? I'll tell you now.

Friends, readers, and countrymen, lend me your ears; I come here before you to announce that Alcatel releases Flash 2, their latest prime mobile phone.

Alcatel Flash 2 is available in the following colors: Volcanic Grey and Mica White

Sleek. Superb. Sophisticated. Alcatel Flash 2 is a dream come true for many users who are yearning for a more advanced technology and stunning camera features from a 4-digit smartphone. 

It runs on Android Lollipop and 64-Bit Octa-Core Processor, and has expandable memory features; the latest technologies of an Android phone, you can experience with Flash 2 at a fraction of the cost of its contenders.

The developers at Alcatel understand very well that photography is now a part of everyday life; From our good morning face, to the food we eat, to the rays of sunlight filtering through a building's window, we capture to convey our present thoughts, emotions, or to simply pass time, thus Alcatel further improved the mobile photography features on Flash 2. 'Mobigraphy' (Mobile Photography), a term Alcatel coined, sums up the unique photography features that Flash 2 offers to every user: capture photos continuously, ala-DSLR, no more awkward selfies thanks to a camera button on the side, produce track photos, and more; Mobigraphy is the smartphone lifestyle that complements today's photo- loving generation.

Summary of Specs

Here are some more notable features of Alcatel Flash 2:

Matte is sexy, matte is classy, and also, matte is convenient! Alcatel Flash 2's matte back offers better grip and keeps the device shine- free and dirt- free. Rear camera features gSight, 13 Megapixels f/2.0 for sharper, clearer photos. RealTone DuTone Flash combines Amber and White light to bring out the true colors of a photograph. 

Just a cool fact: the standout, bright green hue that outlines the camera symbolizes the energetic, innovative, passionate, and creative hearts, minds, and souls at Alcatel; I like that!

Ergonomically- shaped, Alcatel Flash 2 fits your hand perfectly so you can browse at ease.

Tell me, is there any other 4-digit smartphone that offers a front camera flash? Maybe in the future, but Alcatel unleashes the first! Flash 2 has a 5 Megapixel front camera with LED flash for well- lit selfies.

Have fun with your photos with these settings. There's also Panorama mode for your travels!

Alcatel Flash 2 will come in a gorgeous gift box with free accessories namely LCD sticker protector and leatherette protective case.

Alcatel partnered with Lazada Philippines for the launch of Flash 2. Take note: Flash 2 will launch first in the Philippines on September 30, 2015 at exactly 12 noon and at Lazada Philippines only. Now that deserves a toast and maybe, a bright green drink!

Basing on the success of Alcatel Flash (which, according to Lazada, they sold 29 units of it in 1 minute at one point), Lazada Philippines is expecting another sold out launch for Flash 2. Don't tell me I didn't inform you! :)

Alcatel Flash 2 retails at P6,190.00 only. To those who want to purchase, kindly write this down: SEPTEMBER 30, 2015. ALCATEL FLASH 2 LAUNCH. AVAILABLE AT LAZADA PHILIPPINES ONLY. I've a unit and I'll be road testing this one, and will review it soon. ;)
