Alcatel OneTouch has launched in Malaysia a true Octa Core processor-powered smartphone called Idol X+ to its Idol family, it said.

During the launch in Malaysia, Alcatel OneTouch's announcement said the Idol X+ builds on the "global success of the Idol range and included a 5" Full HD 441ppi display and 13.1 Mpxl 1080p camera with an Octa Core 2 GHz processor and 2GB RAM, all in a handset that is just 7.9 mm thin."

Built with content in mind, the Idol X+ tuned to realise the potential of the Octa Core processor for smoother web browsing, immersive gameplay and compelling 3D graphics, said the company's representatives.

In addition, the new processor increases battery efficiency as there is an 18 percent reduction in power consumption when compared with a Quad Core chip when decoding Full HD video, it was stated.  "It also includes clever performance tweaks like allocating each web page tab to a different CPU to mean smooth but fast browsing."

The side speakers support SACD's 24 bit/192KHz playback, while JBL earphones are included in all Idol X+ retail box. For Malaysians, the Idol X+ is also bundled with a Bluetooth-enabled wristband fitness tracker called Boomb, which uses an LED system to pass on notifications to Idol X+ via a companion app. The tracker monitors movement and sleep, plus it will warn user if it loses contact with the phone.
