POP 8S Is Alcatel’s First Tablet In India Featuring 4G LTE Under $160

Now that it has enough experience of the Indian market, Alcatel has decided to launch its first tablet here. The tablet market isn’t really an exciting category for makers around the world, and that’s true for India as well. All thanks to affordable phablets. This indeed is a courageous step from Alcatel.


So its first tablet is called POP 8S which it is launching exclusively with Flipkart. Specs aren’t inspiring considering its price. It’s got a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. Its 8 inch screen has HD(1200×800) resolution. Internal storage maxes out at 8GB but can be expanded with a microSD card up to 64GB. Alcatel POP 8S is also one of those rare tablets in its segment to feature 4G LTE connectivity. You can also use it as a remote control with its IR blaster. I don’t remember seeing this feature in this category, at least.

It will run on Android KitKat (4.4) out of the box. This one will cost you INR 10,499 or USD 160.
