The TCL Idol X (S950) is in every way identical to the Alcatel One Touch Idol X, first shown off at MWC earlier this year. The Alcatel Idol X impressed us with its ultra-narrow 1.7mm bezel and 6.99mm thickness, in addition to the gorgeous 5-inch 1080p display that dominates the front side of the phone.

TCL Idol X (S950) specifications:

  • MediaTek MT6589T Chipset
  • 1.5 GHz Quad-Core ARM Cortex A7 CPU
  • PowerVR SGX544 GPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) Display
  • 16 GB Internal Storage
  • 13.1 MP Rear Camera, 2 MP Front Cam
  • 6.99mm Thickness
  • 2000 mAh Battery
  • Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean

Despite the powerful specifications, the TCL Idol X (S950) doesn’t cost a bomb. 1699 Yuan (roughly $280) isn’t much for a Smartphone¬†with such capabilities. Here’s hoping for a global launch at the same price.
