Find all the software updates released for the Alcatel Avalon V handset here. We are also discussing the device’s eligibility and release date for the Android 9 and Android 10 updates here and will be reporting all the monthly security updates here too. If you happen to be a proud owner of this cost-effective, everyday device, check out this space to keep yourself updated.

Alcatel Avalon V won’t turn heads with its looks, impress with its specs, or offer anything unique. It’s just a sturdy LTE smartphone that happens to be tied to one of the country’s leading telecom companies, Verizon. The $99 device comes with a 5.34-inch FWVGA+ screen, a Qualcomm 425 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a micro-SD slot (expandable up to 32GB), 5MP fixed-focus primary camera, 2MP selfie camera, Android 8.1 Oreo, and a 2460mAh battery.

Latest News

August 16, 2019: Verizon has started rolling out an update for the Avalon V. The OTA, which carries software version 3D82UE21, bumps up the device’s security patch to August 2019 and improves the functionality of visual voicemail.

Android Pie and Android Q update

  • Android Pie and Android Q updates are in doubt

The Alcatel Avalon V runs Oreo 8.1 out of the box, and the company couldn’t confirm when or whether it’ll get bumped up to Android Pie, let alone Q.

People, who are only concerned with carrying out basic tasks, usually don’t care much about the OS version their phone’s running. If you don’t fall under that category, we’re sorry to say that you won’t get much joy out of this sub-$100 device.
