The New Alcatel A30 Costs $60 after Discount And Is Available Through Amazon

Why it matters to you

Looking for a super low-cost device? The A30 has just been unveiled, and can be purchased with a subsidy from Prime for $60 after discount.

Smartphone manufacturer is having quite a year. The company launched a number of phones at Mobile World Congress 2017, and now its back with another device — the A30.

The device is decidedly budget, and comes in at less than $100. Not only that, but it also has gesture controls like flip to mute, and runs Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s to be released in April, and it’s currently available for pre-order on Prime — where you can get it at a $40 discount, which brings the price to $60.

So what kind of specs can you expect on the device? Well, as mentioned, it is a low-cost phone, so don’t expect anything mind-blowing. For the price, however, it’s certainly not bad.


Under the hood, you’ll find a 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The device also has a microSD card slot, so you can expand that storage by up to 32GB. On the back of the phone, you’ll find an 8MP rear-facing camera, while on the front, there’s a 5MP front-facing camera. The display sits at 5 inches and has a 720p display.

When it comes to the design, the phone looks pretty basic — but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It just looks like a normal smartphone.

As mentioned, the phone is currently available for pre-order as an Amazon Prime exclusive, as is the Moto G5 Plus, and as part of that deal, you’ll get a subsidy. Of course, there is a tradeoff — in exchange for the subsidy, you’ll have to deal with a few extra ads and promotional offers every now and then. You can, thankfully, also get it without the ads and promotional offers, but you won’t get the $40 Amazon Prime discount, which comes in the form of an Amazon Prime gift card.

The Alcatel A30 is to be released April 19.
