Alcatel OneTouch– the fifth largest smartphone manufacturer in North America – has announced the Canadian availability of the IDOL 3 at Bell, TELUS and Videotron as of June 30. Winner of the Android Authority Editors’ Choice and Mashable Choice awards, among others, the IDOL 3 was one of the big surprises at this year’s Mobile World Congress; challenging the convention of an affordable flagship smartphone.

The award-winning IDOL 3 from Alcatel OneTouch, coming to Canada with Bell, TELUS and Videotron. Beginning June 30.
“IDOL 3 is changing customer expectations by redefining the flagship smartphone experience,” said Steve Cistulli, Senior Vice President & General Manager of North America for Alcatel OneTouch. “With IDOL 3, we’ve partnered with top brands like Qualcomm, JBL and Technicolor to deliver the best in class experience for our customers at a price that’s considerably less than other flagship smartphones in the market. Others try to justify outrageous prices for their top devices and we’re out to show our customers they can get a device with the high-end features they want, at a price that won’t empty their wallet.”
