If you are a selfie junkie like all of us, then you might inspired by the new Flash phone made by Alcatel and interestingly, the device comes out with four cameras (yes, you read it right). The first phone we have heard of with two cameras on the front and two on the back, the 13-megapixel dual rear cameras are aimed at ‘a pro shooting experience’, while the 8M-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual front cameras are aimed at improving the quality of selfies.

Alcatel Flash Phone Features

Alcatel Flash Phone has a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS screen along with Dragontrail Glass and a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating. Inside it has a 10-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor, with 3 gigabyte of RAM, 32 gigabyte of onboard storage, and a 3,100 mAh battery. But unfortunately, Alcatel’s website says that the Flash phone will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. This phone is also comes equipped with a fingerprint sensor at the back.
