New Alcatel Pixi 5 tablet spotted in FCC certification

A mysterious new Alcatel device recently made its way into the FCC database. Its official designation is the “Alcatel9024O”, but documentation also features a reference to the “PIXI5-8” moniker. We know enough about Pixi devices to safely assume this is either a 7 or 8-inch tablet (the Pixi naming convention isn’t known to be particularly descriptive or clear). The cited dimensions of 100mm by 180mm paint a pretty clear “small tablet” picture as well.

Speaking of measurements, the FCC file contains a pretty detailed sketch of the alleged “PIXI5-8”. It offers a few tips on basic hardware, like the single rear-facing camera and what we can only assume is a speaker, near the bottom left corner of the device. The tablet also features a microSD memory expansion slot, as well as a SIM one. The documentation mentions both CDMA and GSM band support, as well as LTE.

The only other hardware info the FCC notes beyond that is a 4,000 mAh Li-polymer battery pack, which, judging by the small writing on the sketch label, will apparently charge at 5V@2A. The still current generation Pixi 4 (7) tablet is an entry-level offer, with its Mediatek MT8321 chipset, 1GB of RAM and 7-inch, 600 x 1024 pixels LCD. We can only assume the “PIXI5-8” will be a low end device as well, but still hopefully a significantly more powerful one.
