Dual cameras on the back of smartphones have become quite common for flagship devices like the iPhone 7 Plus, LG G6 and the Huawei P10. However, Alcatel’s Flash smartphone takes it even further by putting two cameras on both the back and the front of its new device.

The Alcatel Flash comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p full HD display and is powered by a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The handset also houses a decent 3,100 mAh battery. But where the device truly shines is with its camera setup.

On the back, the Alcatel Flash comes with two 13MP cameras. One image sensor handles color, while the other is for monochrome (black & white). The two cameras work in tandem to combine two images and produce a single image with more depth.

This kind of setup is similar to the Huawei P10’s dual camera sensors, but the P10 has a 12MP color sensor and a 20MP monochrome sensor. The color/RGB sensor on the Alcatel Flash is also the same Sony IMX258 camera sensor that’s being used by the LG G6, as pointed out by GSM Arena.

The dual cameras on the back features auto focus, a dual-tone flash and comes with manual focus options, according to Android Authority. When it comes to video recording, users can capture 4K video at 30fps.

As for the front-facing dual cameras, one features an 8MP sensor and the other features a 5MP depth image sensor. Like the twin lenses on the back, the front-facing cameras function the same way. They both feature autofocus, a dual-tone flash and are able to produce deeper depth of field (background blur) with what’s being called as “Super Selfie Mode.”

Although the new Alcatel Flash already seems like a pretty impressive piece of hardware, its software is probably its biggest disappointment. Alcatel’s official spec sheet shows that the handset will ship with the 2015’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow and not 7.0 Nougat.

Alcatel hasn’t listed pricing and availability for the new Alcatel Flash. It’s possible that the product page may have gone live before the company was able to officially announce the handset.
