Archos 45b Platinum: Platinum for a penny


Following the release of the 50 Neon and 50b Oxygen models, Archos is preparing another smartphone to be priced under 149€. We already mentioned that the 45b Platinum was on the way back in February, we revealed some of its specifications in April and today we are happy to share the full specifications. Is it an interesting device? Well, the 45b Platinum is another dual-sim(only one sim card slot that supports 3G connectivity) offering from Archos featuring the 1.2 Ghz quad-core processor from Qualcomm, 512MB of RAM and a relatively low resolution of 854 x 480 pixels on a 4.5 inch display. There is a 1700 mAh battery inside which should make sure that the phone will last a full working day on normal usage. And for 99€ it is currently available for at some places in Germany, it doesn’t look like a bad deal at all.


It runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, comes with just 4GB of storage but which is expandable via microSD slot. And the 1.2 Ghz Quad-Core CPU with 512MB of RAM should be sufficient for an undemanding customer who is looking for an affordable smartphone, though a larger resolution with 1GB of RAM would have been much better.
