Inside is a Snapdragon 400-series processor clocked at 1.2GHz paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, that can be expanded up to 32GB extra. It also has a 2,500mAh battery, which should easily be enough to keep the low-end device running for a full day. There’s an 8MP camera on the back with 1080p video, and a 5MP fixed focus camera on the front. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and it’s almost stock, save for a few Alcatel-ified app icons.
