The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ was officially unveiled at MWC 2015, as an enhanced version of the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 which was announced at IFA last year, as the successor to the budget friendly Alcatel OneTouch Hero phablet.

Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ with Cyanogen OSThe Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ features the same 6 inch 1080p IPS display with Dragontail glass, 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD, 13 MP rear camera with OIS, a 5MP front camera, LTE connectivity and a 2GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor with 2GB of RAM. However its unique for running Android 4.4 KitKat and featuring Cyanogen OS.

Alcatel boasts that the HERO 2+ is the first phablet with an octa-core processor and Cyanogen OS natively available on the device, and it will be available as such exclusively to the North American market in Q2 for the modest sum of $299 without any contract, through Alcatel's online store.

"We've joined forces with ALCATEL ONETOUCH to push the limits of what a great user experience looks like, beginning with their latest phablet for North America - HERO 2+,” said Vikram Natarajan, Senior Vice President of Global Partnerships and Distribution for Cyanogen. “Our partnership is reflective of our deep commitment to driving innovation and meaningful differentiation for users; with enhanced privacy and security features.”

Cyanogen is slowly gaining ground, it seems, after appearing on some Chinese handsets as the default OS, and now partnering with Alcatel. The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ is just another step in that direction, but pretty important one, as the phablet will be sold to American customers directly.
