Customers will love freedom of choosing the cover they like to fully express their own style,” says Ernst Wittmann, Regional Manager Southern Africa at Alcatel.

Consumers can choose from two interchangeable back covers, which are available in Denim and Wood. These also come with matching screen wallpapers.

Alcatel provided the following information:

The curved back cover gives the phone an elegant slimness at the edges, and makes it a easy to hold. The fully laminated screen offers excellent clarity even under direct sunlight.

Pop Star is available in 3G+ connectivity, and runs on a quad-core processor. It struts an 8 MP rear camera for quality photos and a 5 MP front camera.

Pop Star has a QR code on the battery cover that gives users access to the Wallpaper Store app, which offers them a wide selection of wallpapers.
