Next to the two new Oxygen smartphones, Archos is working on adding new models to its range. Archos 79 Neon just showed up on the FCC website. There is nothing more visible than a image of its label on the back and all the product images will only become available in August. However, given the current Neon range, we can expect nothing more than budget specifications for a low price – we should think of a 1024×768 resolution bundled with a quad-core processor.
What is more, one of Spanish retailers put the 64 Xenon online. Not much is known about this tablet, apart from the fact it has 4GB of storage. It sounds more like a joke to put that little amount of storage, but we are already used to jokes from Archos. Given the Xenon in the name, it should offer 3G functionality with the ability to make phone calls.
Finally, we managed to get a quick view on the Archos roadmap for the coming months. Next to the mentioned models, Archos is planning to update its Titanium line-up of phones with the 35 Titanium(previously named 35 Carbon) and 40b Titanium Surround models. The 3.5″ Titanium model will feature a simple 1Ghz dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, a microSD slot and offer dual-sim capability. In the Oxygen line-up, we will be able to find the 50b Oxygen and the high-end octa-core 50c Oxygen of which we had a hands-on a week ago. The 50b Oxygen will feature a quad-core Cortex A7 processor running at 1.3Ghz, an 5″ 1280 x 720 IPS screen, 8MP Camera and run on Android 4.2. The 50c Oxygen will sport a full HD IPS screen and will be powered by MTK MT6592 processor running at 1.7Ghz.
Platinum line-up is also not forgotten, with the 45b Platinum and the 50b Platinum being worked on. The models will be slightly updated, featuring quad-core Cortex A7 processors. Finally, another 5″ device is planned and will be named 50 Neon. On the tablets side, there is the 70b Cobalt model planned. Unfortunately, we can not give any further specifications or product images at the moment.
