Now throughout the rest of the holiday season, you can buy the Alcatel Idol 4 with VR Goggles for just $99.99 from pre-paid carrier Cricket. The device comes with a 5.2-inch LCD screen, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Driving the handset is a Snapdragon 617 SoC with an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU, and the Adreno 405 GPU. 3GB of RAM provides smooth multi-tasking, and 16GB of native storage is included (10GB available to the user). Those seeking additional memory can access a 512GB microSD slot.
The primary rear-facing camera weighs in at 13MP, while the 8MP front-facing camera shoots selfies in wide angle. There also is a front-facing flash that can be used to take selfies in low-light conditions, and keeping the lights on is a 2610mAh battery. Android 6.0 is pre-installed, and the phone is available in metallic silver.
If these specs sound familiar to you, it is because the exact model is being re-branded by BlackBerry as the DTEK50. Keep in mind that the DTEK50 is available from BlackBerry for $299. You can buy essentially the same phone from Cricket for almost $200 less. And the Alcatel Idol 4 from Cricket includes a free VR headset, an accessory not offered by BlackBerry for its version of the phone.
Remember, this is a limited time deal that runs for the remainder of the holiday season. Cricket has three plans that offer unlimited talk and text. For $45 a month with auto pay, you can get 8GB of data. $55 a month with auto pay will give you 10GB of data. For $65 with auto pay, you can receive unlimited data (data speed capped at 8Mbps for LTE coverage).
