Alcatel One Touch Glory 2 coming soon

Yes, you're reading it right! Glory's successor is coming here in the country, along with One Touch Scribe HD and Idol Ultra in the form of the recently unveiled Alcatel One Touch SPop. It will be called locally as the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2, as it looks like an upgrade of the bestsellling Glory (918N).
 Here are the specs of the One Touch Glory 2:
  • 3.5" HVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen, 320 x 480 pixels(165 ppi)
  • 1GHz Mediatek MT6575 processor
  • 4GB ROM (2GB user memory, expandable up to 32GB w/ a microSD card
  • 512MB RAM
  • 3.2 MP rear camera with autofocus
  • VGA front camera
  • 115 x 61.2 x 12.2mm
  • G-sensor, proximity and light sensor
  • Bluetooth 4.0/WiFi/3G connectivity
  • A-GPS
  • micro-USB 2.0
  • stereo FM radio
  • Android 4.1 Jellybean
  • 1400 mAh battery
    • 254H standby (2G), 350H (3G)
    • 5H taktime (2G) 6H (3G)
    • 3H 40 min charging time
Quite a nice upgrade to the old Glory which has a small 3.2" HVGA TFT screen, a slow 650 MHz processor, and a low user memory. Unfortunately, Glory 2 is not dual sim, and still has the same camera. But what's good is that it has a faster processor, bigger screen (but the same resolution), a bigger 2GB user memory, VGA front camera for video chats, and a bigger battery of course (as it has a bigger screen). And it will be running on 4.1 Jellybean compared to Glory which is on Gingerbread.

Alcatel Mobile Philippines has not announced it yet but I'm quite sure it will be available soon as it appeared on the Alcatel One Touch Philippines website. Of course no pricing yet but I'm hoping that it will come on an affordable price.

It may come to Sun Cellular's Postpaid plan too, just like most Alcatel phones.

It will come on black, aubergine, cherry red, ocean blue, slate, hot pink, tangerine, turquoise, green apple, and pure white colors.

UPDATE:  The Alcatel One Touch Glory 2 is dual-sim. It's now available at Sun Cellular for Plan 350. I hope they sell the unlocked version too.

Thanks sofie for the info.
