We originally thought it was a typo by MCMC when the device appeared on the agency’s initial list of pre-approved devices for Youth Communication Package (which has been overruled not long after it was published) but to our surprise, the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2 is actually a real device. Also known as S’Pop in certain markets out there, the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2 is among new devices that TCL has unveiled at CES 2013 last month.
Runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the dual-SIM device is powered by a MediaTek 6575M chipset which features a single-core 1GHz Cortex-A9 CPU and a 281MHz PowerVR SGX531 GPU. Comes complete with a 3.5-inch capacitive touch display with a resolution of 320 x 480, it is also equipped with 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage with the support for microSD card with storage of up to 32GB. Not to forget, there is also a 3.2-megapixels main camera (no flash though) and a VGA front-facing camera on the device.
Don’t be fooled by the TCL S820 model name that is shown above – Alcatel One Touch Glory 2 looks nothing like the actual TCL S820. The device above is a prototype unit which might explained the discrepancy.
Furthermore, the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2 also comes with a removable 1400mAh battery that is able to provide up to 6.5 hours of 3G talk time and 300 hours of 3G standby time. We were informed during our brief time with the device that the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2 4030 will be priced at RM 349 once it is released into Malaysia sometime in March or April this year.
