Alcatel is on fire at Consumer Electronics Show 2013, in Las Vegas. The company has just announced no less than 7 upcoming Android smartphones and 3 tablets.

Among them, TCL Communication, owner of Alcatel brand, unleashed the One Touch Scribe X and One Touch Scribe HD.

Both phablets come with 5-inch full HD (1080p) displays. Moreover, these are the first smartphones announced that are powered by Mediatek’s MT6589 quad-core chipset.

In this regard, the smartphones are equipped with 1.4 quad-core processors. Sadly, there are no details on the amount of storage and RAM yet, but stay tuned for more info on this one.

According to Alcatel, “the ONE TOUCH Scribe series was designed to enable people to express themselves in a new way, offering a perfect balance between slim design, large display, outstanding performance, and rich user experience.”

Furthermore, the One Touch Scribe X and Scribe HD LTE boast 12-megapixel rear cameras with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as front-facing cameras for video calls.

The One Touch Scribe HD LTE also offers full LTE support, but it will only be up for purchase in markets where 4G services are available.

It is also worth mentioning that both models come with a slew of accessories that can be purchased separately, including pens, Wi-Fi dongles for wireless connection to TV, as well as a wide range of Magic-Flips.

The smartphones are expected to arrive in the US as well, though Alcatel has yet to offer more details on pricing options and release date.

“The ALCATEL ONE TOUCH brand prides itself on the commitment to bring consumers innovation and quality in mobile technology, at a great price. The ONE TOUCH Scribe series truly showcases this value proposition offering a very broad selection of options to consumers: 4G, LTE, and a version with a more advanced feature set,” said Dan Dery, chief marketing officer.
