It has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel depth-sensing lens for portrait shots. Its 5-megapixel front-facing camera also includes portrait mode. The Onyx’s camera comes with features such as HDR and auto light-sensing night mode, which let you take brighter and clearer pictures, the company says. The latter two features are standard for pricier handsets, but not a given when you get to the lower end of the price spectrum.

Angela Lang/CNET While Cricket is calling the phone an exclusive, the Alcatel Onyx is a variant of the Alcatel 1X budget device that we saw at CES. We were initially quoted about $130 for that handset, so it’s nice to see Cricket knocking off 10 bucks. Along with BlackBerry Mobile and Palm, Alcatel is a brand within the China-based TCL empire, which is best known for affordable TVs.center_img Preview • Alcatel 1X Android Go phone comes to the US for $100 Alcatel 1X and 1C are dirt cheap Android phones See it 0 Alcatel Onyx specs5.5-inch 1,440×720-pixel displayDual 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear cameras with portrait mode5-megapixel front-facing camera1.5GHz MediaTek quad-core processor32GB onboard storage2GB of RAMUp to 128GB microSD storage3,000mAh batteryAndroid 8.1 OreoFingerprint readerRead: Xiaomi’s novel double-bending foldable phone just stole Samsung’s thunderRead: Galaxy X?
