“Across pro­duc­tiv­ity, well­ness and peace of mind demon­strated by the an­nounce­ments un­veiled at CES, we con­tinue to prove that you can suc­cess­fully com­bine tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion with af­ford­abil­ity and ac­ces­si­bil­ity. This will con­tinue to be show­cased at MWC next month, where we will be an­nounc­ing more flag­ship de­vices that will be in­tro­duced to Aus­tralian con­sumers over the course of 2017,” said Sam Skon­tos, VP and Re­gional Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Al­ca­tel South-east Asia and Pa­cific.

While the com­pany re­mained mum on what would re­place the dis­con­tin­ued Pixi and Pop ranges, they were happy to talk about their lat­est ph­ablet on their docket, the Al­ca­tel A3 XL.

Fea­tur­ing a 6-inch high def­i­ni­tion dis­play and en­hanced speak­ers (pow­ered by Arkamys), Al­ca­tel didn’t pin down too many of the specs for the A3. How­ever, they did con­firm that it’ll pack dual-flash cam­eras and a fin­ger­print recog­ni­tion fea­ture.

The Al­ca­tel A3 XL will be avail­able in Aus­tralia mid-year, along­side the 5-inch Al­ca­tel A3 which will re­tail for $199
