Background and Identification
The Alcatel One Touch Idol 2 Android smartphone was manufactured by TCL Mobile and released in February 2014. It can be identified by the model numbers 6037K and 6037i (for dual-SIM models), and 6037B and 6037Y (for single-SIM models). The Idol 2 was released in grey, brown, white, and pink body colors.
The One Touch Idol 2 features a 5.0-inch display with a resolution of 540 by 960 pixels. The single-SIM models include 8 GB of internal storage and 1 GB of RAM while the dual-SIM models include 16 GB of internal storage and 1 GB of RAM. The Idol 2 includes an 8-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone contains a 2000 mAh non-removable battery, meaning the battery’s adhesive is permanent, making repair and replacement difficult, but not necessarily impossible.
The Alcatel One Touch Idol 2 includes Android’s three-button navigation system that includes a circular “home” button in the center of the phone’s bottom bezel, an arrow button that serves as a “back” button, and a square button that allows users to view all open applications and navigate between them.
The Idol 2 can be identified by the name “Alcatel” in capital letters in the center of the phone’s rear, along with the title “OneTouch” in lowercase letters underneath. The Idol 2’s main camera is positioned in the top center of the phone’s backing.
