ARCHOS 50 and 55 Helium Plus bring 4G speeds to the masses, starting at just $109
Today ARCHOS announced the 50 Helium Plus and 55 Helium Plus, two new smartphones offering reasonably decent specs and looks at highly affordable price points. With large displays, built-in 4G technology, and space for two SIM cards, these phones really make full use of their lower-end specs and still manage to handle Google’s latest software, Android 5.1 Lollipop.
As their names suggest, the 50 Helium Plus comes with a 5-inch IPS display and the 55 Helium Plus sports a 5.5-inch IPS display, both with 1280 x 720 resolutions. Other specs include a 64-bit quad-core 1GHz MediaTek MT6735P with 1GB RAM, 8GB storage with microSD, a 13MP rear-facing camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera. The only major difference besides display size is the battery. The 5-inch model packs a 2,000mAh removable battery, while the 55 Helium Plus offers a 2,400mAh removable battery.
While none of the specs exactly impress, the pricing sure does. ARCHOS is charging just $109 for the 5-inch model and $139 for the 5.5-inch variant. Both models will be released in July 2015 in select markets. What do you think, anyone interested in picking either of these up?
