During Mobile World Congress, Alcatel introduced a pair of phones called the Alcatel 1X and the Alcatel 3V.

The company has confirmed that both of these models will be available to purchase in the United States, each as an unlocked GSM device for use with compatible carriers.

The Alcatel 1X in particular will be the maker’s first phone to offer Android Oreo, pairing it with an 18:9 display and other “premium” features.

Both phones are notable, at least as far as Alcatel’s own product line is concerned.

As mentioned, the 1X is the maker’s first model to offer Android Oreo Go Edition, which is specifically designed for entry-level smartphones.

This model is also Alcatel’s first handset to feature an 18:9 aspect ratio display, the same long screen found on the Galaxy S9 and select other phones.
