Alcatel plans to launch itself in the Pakistani market by launching 7 new smartphones; Alcatel has a worldwide presence and is a well-known international brand. Alcatel is owned by TCL corporation, a Chinese electronics giant, which had their dealings with other large multinationals such as Siemens, Nokia and Motorola.


A veteran in the telecommunication industry, Alcatel already has all the resources to manufacture superior quality phones in the market.
