I was at The Roof yesterday for the Alcatel OneTouch Flash launch. Great atmosphere.

Alcatel OneTouch has launched OneTouch Flash yesterday, a smartphone equipped with 5 Mp HD (front camera) and 13 Mp Full HD (rear camera) for selfie lovers. These selfie lovers will also find the Smart Beauty Enhancement feature very useful as they will not need to install any extra photo editing apps, as the photos taken are already enhanced for the users.

The Flash has Hotknot pre-installed, a technology that allows rapid transfer of all multimedia information. It works like NFC. So, users can transfer their favourite photos or videos by just one touch.

Other key features include: 
• 5.5” HD IPS display
• True Octacore 1.4 GHz CPU
• 8 GB ROM/ 1GB RAM 
• 8.1mm thin
• 150g
• 3200 mAh battery

OneTouch Flash retails at RM699 bundled with flip cover and value added Screen Warranty Care + (SWC+) which covered the device with a free one-time screen replacement within the first 12 months of ownership. The first 1,000 set of OneTouch Flash is also bundled with free selfie sticks.

Jason Khor, Business Development Manager from TCT Mobile Malaysia mentioned that smartphone users may sometimes damage their phone because they dropped it so this is where the SWC+ has so much more value for consumers.

In conjunction with the launch, Alcatel OneTouch has also partnered with Hydraskins.com to provide an exclusive 50% off skins exclusively for Alcatel OneTouch users by simply entering the redemption code “BEaFlasher”. The promotion period is valid till 31st March 2015.

The Flash is available in two colours: Crystal White and Gun Grey.

OneTouch Flash will be up for sale from December 12, 2014 in West Malaysia. Those in East Malaysia, however, will have to wait until December 15, 2014.
