The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ was launched at the MWC 2015 tech show in Barcelona with Cyanogen OS. Now, the Chinese vendor and the maker of custom ROMs have cancelled the phablet before the device could be released into the market.
In a brief statement, Alcatel OneTouch as well Cyanogen put the blame on the lack of a clear Android 5.1 upgrade path for the scrapping of the product. The two firms have announced that they are committed to come up with another Cyanogen OS based Alcatel OneTouch device. But they did not share further details of their upcoming device.
The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ is a variant of the Hero 2 that was launched in the U.S. for a price of $299. The device came with high end specifications including a 6 inch Full HD 1080p display, 13 MP main snapper at its back and MediaTek MT6592 SoC with 2 GB of RAM.
