Alcatel is showing off a 17-inch all-in-one desktop PC called OneTouch Xess running the customized version of Android called Phoenix OS. Phoenix OS is a modified version of Android, which will allow users to take advantage of Google’s Android OS with a functionality of a desktop (taskbar and multi-window support). New OneTouch Xess has MediaTek MT8783T 64-bit octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor and supported it with 2 GB of RAM along with 32 GB internal storage.
The Alcatel Xess features a 17.3-inch full HD IPS touchscreen display and battery capacity is measured at 10,000 mAh, which should be enough to deliver up to 6 hours of battery life and allow full HD video playback. Other features that should add more excitement to media content viewing and listening include the machine’s 3-watt JBL stereo speakers and a pair of microphones. OneTouch Xess 17-inch all-in-one device also has built-in unique stand, which gives users the freedom to position the machine depending on the level of desired viewing. Users can make the stand lie down flat to enjoy games and fun family activities. It can be adjusted to 30 degrees for drawing and sketching, 50 degrees when viewing recipes while cooking and 75 degrees when watching videos. Accessories like the Smart Dock and wall mount allow even more viewing possibilities.
“Xess is one of our favorite new products because this big format is really family-oriented and has a multitude of uses at home or at work,” says Stan Hu, Alcatel’s chief technology officer and general manager of innovation at the company’s BigPad Business Center. “You can use it to cook, by displaying your favorite recipes in the kitchen, watch movies, listen to music or play games with friends and family in the living room.”
The Xess is expected to be available in the US in the second quarter of 2016, and it should hit Europe a few months later.
