Alcatel bringing a Flip Phone to Canada with Google Assistant

Just had a discussion the other day about not being able to find a flip phone anymore... and I don't mean the foldable kind.  There is still a cellphone generation that doesn't want all the bells and whistles and just likes that little flip style cell.

Well, Alcatel is bringing the Go Flip 3 to Rogers and the neat thing is that it will run with the Google Assistant..., it's a nice hybrid in between the old flip and a smartphone.  Not going to run Android, but a simple KaiOS that still lets you access the main Google items.

Rogers has updated the pricing.  It's $75CDN outright and $0 on a plan.

The Alcatel GO FLIP 3, to be available on Rogers, is the first flip phone in North America to feature Google Assistant integration, making it easier to dictate texts, make phone calls and access other Google services and apps on your device.

The GO FLIP 3’s key features include:

  • KaiOS 2.5, which offers Google Assistant integration and support for apps like YouTube, Google Maps and Google Search, as well as WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter 
  • An easy-to-read 2.8” internal display and 1.44” external display 
  • A host of accessibility features such as oversized buttons, Real-Time-Text, Text Telephone mode and a Readout feature for the visually impaired
  • 4GB of internal storage + up to 32GB microSD expansion 
  • Fast quad-core 1.1GHz processor
  • Up to 8 hours of continuous talk time and 18 days standby time on a single charge
