Not only can the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 take calls upside down, with those dual mics and speakers, but it comes in two different sizes and it comes pre-loaded with Android Lollipop 5.0.2 right out of the box.

You can now pre-order your own Idol 3 starting on April 21st with a price of $249 unlocked. That’s without a carrier plan (Only the 5.5 version). Android Central even noted that you’d be saving $30 now versus waiting for the carrier release date, which may be around May sometime.

“We’ve always differentiated ourselves by challenging the expectations of what consumers experience for their money,” “With IDOL 3, we’ve partnered with top brands like Qualcomm, JBL and Technicolor to bring a truly flagship experience at an accessibly affordable price. Where others try to justify outrageous prices for their top devices, we’re focused on ensuring our customers get a device with the high-end features they want, at a price that won’t empty their wallet.”Steve Cistulli, Senior Vice President & General Manager of North America for ALCATEL ONETOUCH
