Alcatel today launched its new Windows 10 2-in-1 PLUS 12 tablet at Mobile World Congress offering 4G connectivity. The Tablet was introduced along with its latest smartphones — A3, A5 LED, and U5 shown at the ‘Lights Up’ event. It is the successor to Alcatel’s Plus 10 Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet, released a year ago. However, the Plus 12 is a restructured and refined version of the same.
The tab offers a 12.6-inch 16:9 display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. The device is packed with a 1GHz dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 ‘Apollo Lake’ CPU alongside 4GB of RAM. The tablet packs 32GB eMMC SSD plus an included 32GB microSD card in terms of internal storage. The tab sports a 6900 mAh internal battery fixed with a 5MP rear camera. The front camera for PLUS 12 remains to be at the same edge featuring a 5MP resolution.
The Tab comes with a keyboard base supported by an internal 2580mAh battery. The keyboard can be detached and attached to the screen, courtesy of magnetic field joints provided at the ends — both at the closing on top of the keyboard and mounting open for laptop style. The base also serves as an LTE hotspot, allowing you to connect up to 15 other devices. However, for the transmission of data from the keyboard, the tablet uses a 7-pin connector. The connector also assists in charging and USB port data transfers.
The company takes on other tabs with fast 4G/Wi-Fi connectivity, which the PLUS 12 offers. Alcatel calls it ‘the perfect mobile office combo’ and targets the active tech generation. Speaking on the same, Vittorio Di Mauro, Senior-Vice President at Alcatel said,
We are convinced that productive devices will be more and more connected to cellular networks. Alcatel has developed the PLUS range, a series of high-performing connected Windows 10 2-in-1s with 4G LTE inside, so you’ll always be connected and productive wherever you go.
PLUS 12 is the latest addition to the PLUS family. With a larger screen, it delivers a great user experience. It’s also super lightweight and looks fantastic,With the PLUS 12, Alcatel has created the perfect office on the go.
PLUS 12 offers Windows Hello fingerprint recognition for password-free sign-in and the new Windows Ink note and annotation feature. It also has a Cortana personal digital assistant built in to help you work more productively. The device sports multiple ports including USB-C, USB-A, micro-HDMI and audio jack.
The Tablet only weighs 990 gms and thus is highly portable. The sleek metal front casing with a premium brushed effect further adds to its overall look.
