Alcatel Mobile Phones was established in April 2004 as a joint venture between Alcatel-Lucent (45%) & TCL Corporation (55%). Alcatel originally started making mobile phones in late 1996.
In 2005, the joint venture was dissolved & TCL acquired Alcatel-Lucent's 45 percent share, and Alcatel Mobile Phones became a wholly owned subsidiary group of TCL. The brand name was licensed to TCL.
In 2010, Alcatel One Touch became the corporate brand. In February 2016, it was changed back to simply Alcatel and a new logo was introduced.[Source]
