Alcatel has officially launched the 2021 model of the Alcatel V1. The new Alcatel V1 2021, is a direct successor to the Alcatel V1 2020 launched 2 years back. The smartphone brings a bigger display, triple cameras, and battery improvements.
The Alcatel V1 2021 comes with a new design offering a bigger camera island, thanks to the improved optics. On the front, it has a larger 6.52-inch water-drop notch display with HD+ resolution. It has a 20:9 aspect ratio and the standard 60Hz refresh rate.
The screen comes with Eye care modes like Eye-comfort and Reading mode. The Eye-comfort mode reduces the harmful blue light emitted by the display.
