Tablets, phones, and a “unique smartwatch concept”. Oh my!
Ahead of IFA, Archos has outed (maybe) all of their new devices — and there are plenty of them. In a move which was probably designed to get them more exposure against a stacked IFA, the new lineup of Android tablets and phones from Archos is deep.
Their tablet lineup is flagshipped by their aptly named Platinum line, which boasts quad-core processors and aluminum casings. The screens have an impressive 2,048 x 1,536 maximum resolution, and they’ll be running Android 4.2. Archos’ Second tier offering, the 101SX2, is “designed for performance, media playback and productivity” (because no other tablet is?), and boasts a quad core processor with front facing speakers.
Archos flagship smartphone, the 50 Oxygen, “features a full HD IPS screen, Quad-Core CPU at 1.5 GHz, 16GB storage, Android 4.2 and 13MP back camera and a 5 MP front camera.” This is bolstered by the Titanium range of phones, which will be a bit more budget friendly (starting around $150), sport dual core processors, 4-inch screens, 5MP rear and 0.3MP front cameras.
The list is exhaustive, and the hook remains their smartwatch concept. The press release gave no hint as to what it would be, but we’ll be at IFA to check it out!
