We already mentioned that Archos was planning to launch a lot new devices powered by MediaTek chips and running on Android 4.4 KitKat OS. Today, we would like to reveal the budget friendly Archos 45c Platinum which will come with three exchangeable covers. Are you ready to go pink?

Speaking about other things than just covers, the specifications of the 45c Platinum are nothing to write home about. This dual-sim smartphone comes with Quad-Core CPU from MediaTek clocked at 1.3 Ghz, 512 MB of RAM(we thought it was 2014 already, oups), 5 Mpx camera on the back and 4.5 inch IPS screen with 854×480 resolution. It runs on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat(though we are wondering whether KitKat will be the latest Android by the time the 45c gets to the market) and there is an removable 1700 mAh battery to keep everything running.

The good thing about the 45c? It should be available a price around 100€, but if you ask us – it is not worth the Platinum name and it is not worth spending even 99€ on it, because of the frustrating low resolution and low amount of RAM. Here are the full technical specifications for those that are still interested:
