Alcatel OneTouch recently announced its first global flagship smartphone, the Idol 3, at MWC 2015. The company originally revealed that the 5.5-inch device would eventually become available for just $249.99 off-contract, but it looks like early adopters of the phone now have the opportunity to save some cash. From now until Tuesday, April 21st, you can pre-order the 5.5-inch Idol 3 for only $199.99. Once 11:59pm PDT on Monday, April 20th rolls around, the price of the phone will go back up to the original price of $249.99. Folks who pre-order the device before the official launch will start receiving their phones mid- to late May. The company hasn’t revealed any availability information regarding the 4.7-inch variant.

For just $200, the 5.5-inch Idol 3 is a really good smartphone. It has a 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 16/32GB of on-board storage with MicroSD expansion up to 128GB, a 13MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP front-facing camera. You can purchase a dual-SIM version, which only comes in the 32GB model and activate it on either T-Mobile or AT&T’s networks. On the software front, the device is running a heavily skinned version of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. For more information, check out our initial hands-on and first impressions post.
