Alcatel has launched the A5 LED – the world’s first interactive LED-covered smartphone, delivering an innovative experience for young, energetic entertainment seekers. FACT explores…

The latest chatter in the world of smartphones has been dominated by a certain brand that takes its name from a fruit – and we can all agree that there has been way too much commentary on said overhyped phone. So, in the bid to keep things fresh and up-to-date, we’re bringing you news of a brand new device that offers a not only a user-friendly experience but also a tech first.

Bringing uniqueness and personalisation to the forefront, Alcatel’s A5 LED puts you in charge of how you want to show off your personality through your best friend a.k.a your smartphone, with a dazzling array of LED light shows. You can light up your notifications with a different light show for important calls, messages, alarms and social media alerts – yes, that’s right – make your insta notifications bling and choose a colour of warning for those annoying calls from colleagues.

You can even light up your life using Color Catcher 2.0 by creating unique LED cover patterns and themes for a different look as often as you like. Take it one step further and light up your imagination with an eye-catching personalised show, which includes lighting up your music too – the light moves with your tunes, switching with a simple shake. Talk about party for one! And don’t let the dazzling nature of LED fool you into thinking that you don’t get any other tech-savvy benefits. The A5 LED also gives you a great multimedia experience. It has fast 4G LTE connectivity and an octa-core processor that ensures photos, games, and movies load smoothly to the large 5.2-inch HD display.

If you like taking selfies for your Snapchat or Instagram stories, you’re going to LOVE the 5 MP front camera with selfie flash for brighter shots – even in low light – so next time your highlighter’s on fleek or you’re fresh out the barber’s shop, you know the A5 LED has got your back for your next social media post. On top of that, Alcatel has incorporated great features like Face Beauty software for flawless images and Face Show, which lets you turn your selfies into personalised video clips for extra fun. There’s also a 13 MP rear camera with dual-tone flash. Plus, you can enjoy Private Mode, with a different sign-in to protect your hidden photos and apps.

You don’t have to worry about keeping the A5 LED with you all the time because the device fits comfortably in the palm of your hand thanks to its ergonomic design that boasts a slim profile and rounded edges. Sleek, stylish and full of the latest tech – YES.
