Alcatel AVALON V Heads to Verizon

Today, Alcatel announced their latest US partnership with their budget Android handset, the AVALON V – making it the first handset available on Verizon. While this is Alcatel’s first phone on the Verizon network (the God Signal – hat tip to Tatiana King-Jones), they are no stranger to the US market having released phones for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, as well as budget/pre-paid carriers like Cricket and MetroPCS. The AVALON V is very much in line with some of their previous released models.

AVALON V Tech Specs via Press Release 

  • Android 8.1 Oreo 
  • 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 QC8917 Processor 
  • 5.34-inch FWVGA display with 18:9 aspect ratio  
  • 5-megapixel rear camera; 2-megapixel front camera 
  • 2460mAh battery: 18 hours talk time (4G LTE), 9 hours streaming video (Wi-Fi), and 23 hours continuous streaming audio 
  • Google Lens preloaded; Google Assistant capable 

Positioning for the Future 

While the AVALON V’s spec list seems anemic next to many of today’s mid-tier handsets, this phone solidifies Alcatel as a player in the US market. With options available on all major carriers and some of the top regional carriers, the AVALON V and Alcatel’s portfolio of devices may soon start seeing a bump in brand recognition, especially among the more budget-conscious consumer.

The AVALON V seems perfect for someone in need of a backup device or for a family member that’s looking for an entry into Google’s app suite. Pricing will have at $99.99.
