French device manufacturer Archos has just announced two new devices ahead of CES 2015. The company has been a long-time budget device supporter, and the new Archos 50 Diamond smartphone and the 80b Helium tablet are no exceptions.
The 50 Diamond is a 4G LTE-capable device that sports a 5-inch 1080p display with an impressive pixel density of 440ppi. It also boasts an Octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 16MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP front facing camera. The device also measures 8mm and weighs only 142g, and has a 2700mAh battery. It launches with Android 4.4.4 KitKat, but will likely receive Android 5.0 Lollipop sometime in the future. Archos is forecasting the device to be sold for less than $300, and the company will have the device on the show floor at CES in the coming days.
Archos has also announced their new 80b Helium tablet, a 4G LTE-capable budget tablet for less than $150. Details are pretty scarce when it comes to this tablet, so we’ll have more details for you in a few days. Additionally, the company has announced their renewal of the 45b, 50b, 50c phones and 70 and 101 tablets to be offered at cheaper prices.
