During Mobile World Congress 2015, Alcatel Onetouch has officially announced a brand new smartphone to its Hero lineup.

Revealed as the Hero 2+, the latest smartphone with a giant display features Cyanogen OS, based on the CM11 build with Android 4.4 underneath. The software will include an app called Themes, as, one can guess, will feature the ability for owners to customize their device’s software in a variety of ways. That also includes customizing the boot animation, too.

The Hero 2+ features a 6-inch display with a resolution of 1920×1080, and there’s an octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor under the hood, clocked at 2.0GHz. On the back, there’s a 13-megapixel camera, and on the front a 5MP shooter. It’ll boast 16GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot, 2GB of RAM, 4G LTE support, an included stylus, and a 3100mAh battery.

Alcatel Onetouch says the new Hero 2+ will launch sometime in the second quarter of 2015, and that it will be sold unlocked for $299.
