Alcatel has really been surprising us this year, first with a surprisingly good smartphone in April, now with a full set of devices here at IFA 2015. Check our full Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 Review to see what I mean about “surprisingly good”, then check the details on all of Alcatel’s new devices here. Everything from a stand-up tablet-like device with a circle on its back to a set of smartphones that have wildly customizable looks.

Alcatel reveals an oddly appealing set of devices at IFA 2015

The devices you’re seeing above go by the name POP STAR, and will be coming with a big “cover collection” with up to 20 choices right out the gate, including psychedelic designs, leather, and wood options. POP STAR will be released later this year with a 5-inch display and several style collections.

The “POP UP” is also a close relative to the phone above, coming in Black, Riva Blue, Amber Orange, White, and Strawberry Red later this year.

The Alcatel OneTouch “XESS” is a tablet, sort of. The company suggests that it is a “tablet so different we can’t call it a tablet” – so there you go. This device has a 17.3-inch touchscreen up front and an adjustable built-in stand and handle around back.

It also has a stylus built in to its back and works with a 3-watt JBL dual speaker system. Could this be a competitor for Samsung’s upcoming tablet-like device?One way or another, this device is coming later this year complete with its own XESS-brand accessories – Smart Dock, blue-free film, IP camera, Bluetooth mouse and keypad, Bluetooth speaker, mag cover and mounting case.

Alcatel will likely reveal more devices in the next few days – stick around and see in our Alcatel tag portal!
