ED#216 : Alcatel Flash 2 Smartphone First Look

On the 15th of October 2015, Alcatel invited us to the launch of the Alcatel Flash 2 smartphone. Like the original Alcatel Flash smartphone, the new Alcatel Flash 2 is focused on mobile photography. It builds upon Alcatel's commitment to providing their users with a unique mobile photography experience, which they dubbed mobigraphy.

The launch event was held at the swanky new Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC), with Albert Wong (General Manager of Alcatel Flash), Michael Chen (Product Director of Alcatel Flash) and Hans-Peter Ressel (CEO of Lazada Malaysia) in attendence. Take a look at our video coverage of the event :

The Alcatel Flash 2 is a dual-SIM, dual-standby smartphone. This is a pretty nice feature to have at this price point. The dual-SIM, dual-standby capability means you can install and use two SIM cards. The only difference from dual-active smartphones is that all calls and messages to the other SIM card will be temporarily ignored when you receive a call from one SIM card.

The Alcatel Flash 2 will be exclusively sold via Lazada in a unique flash sale from 10 am until 2 pm on the 26th of October 2015 for just RM 549 (~USD 129). It will come with a matching Alcatel Flash flip cover and screen protector, as well as stereo earbuds. This is just as well, as it doesn't look like the Alcatel Flash 2 screen has an oleophobic coating.
