With the OneTouch Idol X+, Alcatel wanted to deliver a solid Android experience without the price tag that’s usually associated with it. That starts with a MediaTek octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz, that Alcatel says is almost 20 percent more power efficient than its quad-core offerings, and two gigs of RAM. All that processing power is used to move 1920 x 1080 pixels on a 5-inch IPS LCD display, that, as you can see from the video, renders some beautiful colors.

The Idol X+ is already available in China and it is all set for a European release next month, there’s no word on the U.S. and Canada just yet. Could it be the breakthrough device that catapults Alcatel into the public consciousness? Aren’t you just a little tempted at that price? There’s no doubt TCL-Alcatel has a ways to go to compete with the likes of LG and Samsung, but this is an impressive step up to kick off 2014.
