Right after the announcement of the Idol 3, Alcatel has just presented another unique smartphone, the Onetouch Hero 2+.
This runs Cyanogen OS, more specifically Android 4.4 based CM11.
It has a 6 inch 1920×1080 display, a 2.0 GHz Octa Core MediaTek MT6592, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It also comes with a microSD card slot, 3100 mAh battery, a 13MP rear camera and 5MP frontal camera.
The Hero 2+ also has 4G LTE connectivity and a stylus. The Cyanogen OS comes with a theming app that lets you customise your wallpaper, fonts, icons, etc. There are also camera filters and features and some security features like Privacy Guard.
The Hero 2+ will launch in North America in the second quarter of 2015 with a price tag of 299$. You’ll just have to wait and see if the performance is as good as it seems to match the price. This one is also a big deal for Cyanogen since it is an affordable big phablet that can show people their software.
