Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 pre-sale arrives with a huge discount

Alcatel’s One Touch Idol 3 is coming soon. The Android phone will already be quite a steal at $279.99 unlocked when it launches in May, but you can pre-order the new device early for just $199.99.

You’ll get the $80 discount if you take advantage of the One Touch Idol 3 pre-sale before April 21. After that, Alcatel is charging full price for its new smartphone. Either way it’s still a pretty great deal, but you might as well take advantage of the extra price drop if you’re planning to buy the phone anyway.

The Idol 3 packs a 5.5-inch 1080p display, octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 13-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of storage (only 10GB is usable) with microSD support and 2GB of RAM.

If you’re looking for a cheap unlocked handset with good specs and a solid build, this is a pretty great option. The Idol 3 may just be the best budget-friendly phone on the market, potentially beating out old favorites like the OnePlus One.

You can pre-order the 5.5-inch Idol 3 straight from Alcatel’s online store or from Amazon if you prefer. You’ll be getting that awesome discount as long as you order the device in time.
