The Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra features a 4.65 inch HD AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.

The phone has a width of 6.45mm, which has led the company to tout it as the thinnest smartphone on the market. However, to get this accolade of the ‘thinnest smartphone’, the device has had to compromise on some matters, such as the phone does not feature an audio jack. The phone does come with a USB to 3.5 mm jack adapter, which means that the USB port doubles as an audio port.

Some of the newer phones under this brand include LG Optimus G, LG Optimus L5, LG Optimus L7, etc. On, February 21, 2013, LG announced the new sub category in the LG Optimus lineup, the F series, namely LG Optimus F5 and LG Optimus F7.
