Alcatel went bright at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, launching the Alcatel A5 LED as the world’s first interactive LED-covered smartphone.
“With the A5 LED, Alcatel is delivering new fun features, like light-up notifications and unique LED cover patterns and themes you create yourself, as well as an enhanced multimedia experience and more ways to take and share selfies, ideal for people who value having fun and letting their personality shine. ” said William Dowie, Portfolio Management Director, Alcatel.
According to Alcatel, the A5’s array of LED light shows allows users to:
- Light up notifications with a different light show for important incoming calls, messages, alarms, and social media alerts.
- Use Color Catcher 2.0 to create unique LED cover patterns and themes for a different look every day.
- Create personalised light shows.
- Light up music with light shows that move to music being played, switching with a simple shake.
The A5 LED includes fast 4G LTE connectivity and an octa-core processor that ensures photos, games, and movies load smoothly to the large 5.2-inch HD display.
It also has a 5MP front camera with selfie flash for brighter selfies in low light. It comes with Face Beauty software and Face Show, which lets users turn selfies into personalised video clips . There is also an 8MP rear camera with dual-tone flash.
Private Mode allows for a different sign-in to protect hidden photos and apps.
The A5 LED promises to fit comfortably into the hand, with an ergonomic design that boasts a slim profile and rounded edges.
