Alcatel unveils the cheapest ever 48MP camera smartphone at CES 2020

French handset maker, Alcatel, is one of the first brands to stir the waters at CES 2020 with the unveiling of the Alcatel 3L (2020) – a budget smartphone that immediately took its place as the cheapest 48MP camera phone in the market right now.

But the Alcatel 3L didn’t come to the show alone, as it was announced along with other budget devices, namely Alcatel 1B and Alcatel 1S (2020). Those are even more affordable.

As we await further details on these phones, let’s quickly take a sneak peek at what these devices bring to the table.
