As in addition to having two cameras, this one also features various OTT software tweaks such as Portrait Mode (which can automatically switch to a wide-angle mode when it detects more than one face) and Face Key.

The Alcatel 3 series, on the other hand, is a little more varied. Positioned as the mid-tier in its lineup, the trio that makes up the new Alcatel 3 series offer considerable value when you factor in their designs and features.

The Alcatel 3X includes a 5.7-inch 1440×720 pixel display. Luckily, the most impressive out of the bunch, the Alcatel 3V is available in select markets right now - while the Alcatel 3 and 3X will be launching in March and April respectively. Likewise, cameras differ between the models with the 3V loaded with a dual rear camera setup consisting of a 12-megapixel primary camera along with a 2-megapixel secondary camera, the 3X boasts a dual rear camera setup consisting of a 13-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary camera, while the standard 3 model boasts one 12-megapixel rear camera.
