Alcatel phone

The packaging of the new Alcatel OneTouch Idol 4S smartphone will be a virtual reality headset, Venture Beat reported yesterday.

This is the third smartphone in a row that is being bundled with a virtual reality headset. Last month, Lenovo sold 10,000 bundles in less than a second in India, and iberry followed up with its own bundle a week later.

The Alcatel smartphone is a midrange phone, expected to cost around $400, and should be coming out in the new few months.
