== Background and Identification == Alcatel (previously called Alcatel Mobile Phones and Alcatel OneTouch) is a French brand of mobile telecommunications devices. Alcatel is owned by Nokia, a Finnish consumer electronics company, and is used under license by TCL Technology, a Chinese electronics company. Formerly known as Alcatel Mobile Phones (2005) and Alcatel One Touch (2010), Alcatel merged with Lucent in 2006 and rebranded themselves as Alcatel-Lucent. Alcatel-Lucent was acquired by Nokia in 2016, and once again rebranded themselves to simply Alcatel. Alcatel started producing cell phones in 1998, with the first model being the OT Easy HF. The OT Easy HF had a long-lasting battery life of 140 hours. From then on, Alcatel released models under the Alcatel One Touch line and eventually moved onto smartphones. The Alcatel OneTouch smartphone line began in 2014 with the release of the Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7. The OneTouch line also includes the Idol, Pixi, Fierce, Fire, and Pop smartphone lines. Alcatel OneTouch phones can be identified by the name “Alcatel” in capital letters in the bottom center of the phone’s rear, along with the title “OneTouch” in lowercase letters underneath. OneTouch phones also include an indicator of which smartphone line they belong to by including the name “Idol,” “Pixi,” “Fierce,” “Fire,” or “Pop” on the phones’ backing. == Additional Information == * [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcatel_Mobile|Wikipedia: Alcatel Mobile] * [https://www.alcatelmobile.com/|Alcatel Mobile Official Website] * [https://www.gsmarena.com/alcatel-phones-5.php|List of All Alcatel Phones]
