About the Alcatel Pop Icon 2 LTE

Today we take a sneak peak at the Alcatel Pop Icon 2 LTE. This is a sequel if you will to the popular Pop Icon which was introduced about 6 months ago. What made that phone popular remains in this new model in the form of the large 5″ diagonal screen at a very reasonable price. There is one significant upgrade on this one and that is the upgrade from regular 3g to the much faster LTE.

About every other spec remains about the same except for perhaps the operating system. Currently, the phone is slated to be introduced with Android 4.4, but I would not be surprised if it were intruded with the much newer Android 5.0 Lolipop.  Dimensions and weight remain the same over the original model. Expect this new model to be slightly more expensive than the original but not by much.
