Alcatel and prepaid carrier Cricket Wireless have announced the Alcatel Onyx, the latest smartphone to bring tall displays and dual cameras to the budget-conscious masses.

Announced during CES 2019 as the Alcatel 1X, the Onyx features a 5.5-inch display with HD+ (1,440 x 720) resolution. The display makes use of Dragontrail glass, which features the same hardness of seven as Gorilla Glass 4 on the Mohs scale. That said, Dragontrail doesn’t withstand drops as well as Gorilla Glass.

Above the display is a 5-megapixel camera that supports Alcatel’s Face Key facial recognition. Face Key uses the front-facing camera to detect 100 points on your face and verify your identity. The relatively low number of points means that Face Key could theoretically be fooled with a detailed picture.

There’s a fingerprint sensor around back if you want another option for added security. Also around back are the dual 13 and 2MP cameras, along with the suede-like finish that also envelops half of the left and right sides.
Under the hood, the Onyx features the quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a 3,000mAh battery. Finally, the phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo, even though we’re now in January 2019.

The Onyx is only available through Cricket Wireless for $119.99; pick it up via the link below, if you’re interested.
