Samsung will probably introduce the Galaxy Note III in the next month or so, but Samsung isn’t the only company offering big phones with support for handwritten notes or doodles. Alcatel’s upcoming OneTouch Scribe Pro is a phone with a huge screen and a stylus.

Eldar Murtazin leaked some details about the phone this week, and says it’ll be available in Hong Kong this month for about $300 (without a carrier subsidy).

The phone’s expected to have a 6 inch display, an unspecified 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, a 13.1 megapixel rear camera, and a 3400 mAh battery which should provide reasonably long run time.

The OneTouch Scribe Pro comes with a capacitive stylus. That means you can use it instead of your fingers to write, draw, or tap on the screen, but it won’t offer the same kind of pressure-sensitive input for fine shading as as you get with an active digitizer and a digital pen.

According to the leaked specs, the phone also features Dolby Digital Plus audio, wireless display support for connecting the phone to a TV, and an “LED Magic Flip” cover which can display the time even while your screen is protected.

It’d be nice to know exactly which processor the phone has, or what the display resolution will be. But with a street price of $300, the Alcatel OneTouch Scribe Pro could be an affordable alternative to Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Note.

  1. And as with all China phones, it is totally useless for data in the states as they all only support WCDMA 850/2100

      1. Now Now…be nice, just because your rich and have money to burn doesn’t mean everybody does. they do the best they can with what they have.

        If it weren’t for China, Taiwan, and of course South Korea, you would not have your iCrap things!

        1. I love and respect products from Korea and Japan.

          China, however, makes low quality products.
          Not to mention the Chinese disregard for human life, so it’s smart to reject their business.

          1. If you have an iToy you might want to check where it is made! China maybe?

      2. Actually, I bought a Haipai i9277 for $160 like 9 months ago and was pleasantly surprised at the speed, features, and build quality. Only problem with these phones is the difficulty of getting replacement parts; Recently, I accidentally dropped it without a case down a flight of stairs, and the screen cracked. Haven’t been able to find a new screen at a decent price.
