The mobile phone maker popularly known as Alcatel has recently introduced their entry-level (Alcatel 1V) smartphone into the Nigerian market. The phone is currently one of the most affordable Android phones with outstanding features which include, 2GB RAM + 32GB ROM, 4000 mAh battery capacity, dual 13MP rear camera and 5MP front selfie camera.
Alcatel 1V is a 6.22 Inches Android smartphone built on Android Q also known as the Android 10 operating system. The phone supports other basic features such as a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, 4G LTE network, dual Sim card support and finally with MT6762D, Octa-core, 1.8GHz chipset and processor.
Alcatel was one of the first mobile phones I have ever used in Nigeria, the one I used was called Alcatel one touch then but somehow they disappeared from the Nigerian mobile market. The good news is they are back and better and my research has shown that Alcatel 1V is not the only smartphone they have released recently. There are more Alcatel smartphones now available in Nigeria.

4G LTE network & Fingerprint sensor support
I know that these are the features you wanted so much in a smartphone but you are fully covered, Alcatel knows how much we calved for a 4G LTE network which ensures faster data connectivity. With 4G Network-enabled smartphones, you can stream your favourite videos without experiencing any hanging, download files faster and upload your files conveniently.
However, Everyone wants a smartphone with a fingerprint sensor and Face ID to add security but guess what you have it right there on Alcatel 1V waiting for you. Apart from the security expect, people buy a smartphone with a fingerprint because it determines the superiority of a mobile phone.
Alcatel 1V is a nice smartphone from a good brand, I have known Alcatel as a brand that produces not only quality phones but also Android Tablet, mobile broadbands and earphone headset. However, A smartphone with these features at the price of 30k plus is a good offer especially when you have limited fund to spend on a smartphone.
