Alcatel on Wednesday announced the ONETOUCH Conquest and Elevate, two new smartphones heading to Boost Mobile that are clearly aimed at first-time buyers. You don’t need to break the bank to hop into the smartphone market, and at just $129.99 and $99.99, respectively, the Conquest and Elevate are among the more enticing options currently available.
The Conquest is designed to be the more durable model, a device ready to handle the elements. With IP67 ratings for resistance against water and dust, the Conquest can withstand a little more misuse than your average phone. The device sports Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 5-inch 720p screen, 2,000mAh battery, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, and 4G LTE.
The Elevate, meanwhile, is the more budget-friendly handset of the two, featuring a 1.1GHz quad-core processor, 5-megapixel camera, Android 5.1 Lollipop, 4G LTE and a 4.5-inch FWVGA display. Not the most well-specced phone when you consider devices like the Moto G are on the market, but a good option for Boost Mobile customers nonetheless.
Customers can pick up the Conquest beginning today, while the Elevate will be available in August.
