Alcatel OneTouch has unveiled a new Android tablet with an enormous screen… but if you think of the Alcatel OneTouch Xess as something other than a tablet, the 17.3 inch screen might make sense.


The device has a stainless steel body and a kickstand that can be adjusted to 30, 50, or 75 degree angles, allowing you to prop up the Xess for viewing movies in on the couch, reading recipes in the kitchen, or lying flat for playing games on a table.

The company says there will also be optional accessories including a wall mount and Smart Dock.

Alcatel OneTouch includes a stylus for jotting notes, and the Xess supports hands-free gesture-based controls, allowing you to use the device in the kitchen without getting the screen wet when you want to answer a Skype call or switch pages in a recipe.

The Xess features a 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS display, a 1.5 GHz MediaTek MT8783T octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 10,000 mAh battery. It ships with Android 5.1 Lollipop software.

It also has stereo 3-watt speakers, a 5MP fixed-focus camera, and a microSD card reader. The Xess measures 16.4″ x 10.5″ x 0.37″

  1. Uh stainless stell body ? then how about the weight, 5 KG ?
    is it portable or must put on the table like a desktop ?

    Coz’ it defeat the purpose for a tablet if it is not portable rite ?

    For a desktop I better buy a desktop PC coz it is cheaper, much faster and easier to upgrade (Ie: memory,processor,ssd, etc).

    So it doesn’t make sense for a tablet if it is so darn heavy, or i am the only one who think like that ?

    1. I think it should be seen as a small smart TV rather than a tablet.

  2. I’d use something like this for reading comics. I found a 10-inch tablet too small. A 4:3 15-inch screen would waste less screen area yet suffice for letter- and A4-sized work, but seems less likely to be done.

  3. Have been waiting for these kinds of devices. Interesting that multiple seem to be in the offing now. Will be curious to see where it goes.
    Still – not buying Android again until I can get it with Marshmalow as I want to be in control of those app permissions.
