A New Flash On The Horizon?

When Flash kicked off their “Life with Metal” competition last month, the theme was curiously about metal. It seemed incongruent with the fact that the Flash 2 smartphone did not have a metal build.

Interestingly, the contest prize was listed simply as “the latest Flash smartphone“, instead of the Flash 2 smartphone, which is currently the latest Flash smartphone…

A New Flash Is On The Horizon

That got us thinking… and remembering what we heard at the exclusive Flash briefing back in January. At the event, they hinted that the next Flash smartphone (which we will imaginatively call Flash 3!) will have a metal chassis.

You don’t need us to help you put two and two together. It was obvious that Alcatel, or as they are now known – Flash, left two Easter eggs in that contest :

  • that the new Flash 3 smartphone is going to have a metal body,
  • and it is going to be revealed VERY SOON!

After all, the contest is over, and it’s time to reward the winners with “the latest Flash smartphone”!

[adrotate banner=”5″]

When Is The Flash 3 Coming?

The contest details only hints that the Flash 3 is coming soon. It doesn’t really tell us when. But we can draw a clue from past Flash launch cycles.

The original Flash smartphone was launched in September 2014, followed by the Flash Plus in May 2015. The Flash 2 was released in September 2015.

If we follow their 8 month + 4 month trend, it looks like they will likely release the Flash 3 in May 2016. But hey, don’t quote us on that! 😀
