Archos officially announces the Archos 50 Diamond 4G smartphone

0

Following the teaser on monday and our revealing of the new smartphone, today Archos officially announced its new 4G-enabled 199.99 smartphone. As expected by Arctablet, a photo from our colleagues from ArchosLounge.net shows that the 50 Diamond is a rebrand of the K-Touch Touch 7. Still, Archos is the first to announce a 4G smartphone with eight cores SoC at a price of 199.99€. The only thing is that the 50 Diamond will only hit the market early 2015 and at that time, we might see simillar solutions from other brands.

Anyways, the Archos 50 Diamond has mid to high-end specifications with a five inch FHD IPS screen giving it a density of 440 dpi and the new 64-bit Snapdragon 615 octo-core CPU. Connectivity wise, the smartphone sports the 4G category 4 giving access to download speeds up to 150Mbps.

One more thing…

By making use of the occasion, we would like to leak out another Archos smartphone that will be available by the end of 2014 for half the price – the Archos 45b Helium 4G. The Archos 45b Helium 4G is a slightly upgraded version of the original 45 Helium and comes with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU, support for Dual-Sim and Android 4.4.4 Kit-Kat. As you can see this smart phone has larger screen so you are able to play most popular free slot machine games from this website http://www.letsplayslots.com/ .Have a go at plaything those free slot machine games to compare the screen size. Unfortunately, the new model comes with just 512MB of RAM, probably to cut down production costs. Still, for 99, the 45b Helium should be a great deal. Wiko, it’s your turn now. 😉
