ALCATEL ONETOUCH Introduces Xess A Tablet So Different We Can’t Call it a Tablet
Berlin |

  • Immersive viewing experience with the large 17.3-inch  interactive touchscreen
  • Elegant, streamlined design with adjustable built-in  stand and handle
  • Powerful 3-watt JBL dual speakers for accurate sound  reproduction
  • Perfect for multipurpose usage: movie streaming,  sketchpad for kids, recipe display in the kitchen, gaming with friends and  family

IFA, Berlin,  September 4th 2015 – ALCATEL ONETOUCH, one of the world’s  fastest-growing smartphone brands, announced the launch of Xess at IFA 2015.  The genre-busting smart device has an extra-large 17.3-inch screen yet boasts a  beautiful, slim stainless-steel body.

“Xess is one of our favorite  new products because this big format is really family-oriented and has a multitude  of uses at home or at work,” says Dr. Stan HU, General Manager of  Innovation - BigPad Business Center and Chief Technology Officer, ALCATEL ONETOUCH.  “You can use it to cook, by displaying your favorite recipes in the kitchen,  watch movies, listen to music or play games with friends and family in the  living room.”


Ingenious  Design Supports Multi-Usage

The slim, 9.15 mm form hides a built-in stand, stylus and slide-out  carrying handle. The stand enables users freedom of choice in positioning Xess:  flat for gaming and family fun; 30 degrees for drawing and sketching; 50 degrees  for cooking and 75 degrees for watching videos. Accessories like the Smart Dock  and wall mount allow even more viewing possibilities.

Perfect Size  for Creative Opportunities

The built-in stylus inspires users’ creativity with the pre-embedded SketchBook app  and offers a variety of different brushes, colors and effects. Culinary artists  will appreciate the hands-free gesture control, which eliminates the need for a  touchpad, keyboard or mouse. Just wave to control the screen — no more messy grease spots on the screen! With the Onetouch Mix app,  amateur DJs can equalize, loop and insert effects to add a personal touch to  their playlist. The two powerful 3-watt speakers powered with JBL by Harman  technology offer true-to-life sound reproduction. Connect to an exterior JBL  speaker for even more booming sound.


Big Fun
Of course Xess is  extra-perfect for gaming, thanks to its extra-big 10-point touchscreen, which ensures  precision and accuracy during sessions. The powerful octa-core processor guarantees  a fantastic multimedia experience.

Customization  Possibilities With Bespoke Accessories
 Users can customize their  devices with a world of Xess accessories: Smart Dock, blue-free film, IP camera,  Bluetooth mouse and keypad, Bluetooth speaker, mag cover and mounting case.

With its large range of  features and accessories, ALCATEL ONETOUCH’s Xess offers supersize  possibilities, whether in the family room or at work.
