At an event in Paris today, Archos officially announced the 50 Diamond. This is actually quite a high-end phone for the French company that usually focuses on extremely cheap devices.
The Archos 50 Diamond comes with a 5-inch 1080p IPS touchscreen, a 16 MP rear camera with LED flash, and an 8 MP front snapper. Powering things up is a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset with an octa-core CPU sporting four Cortex-A53 cores that can go up to 1.7 GHz and another four of those that are only clocked at 1 GHz.
2GB of RAM are in, and the built-in storage space is 16GB, yet there's also a microSD card slot for adding capacity. The phone supports Cat.4 LTE (150Mbps theoretical peak download speed, 50Mbps up), and it has dual-SIM functionality (dual-active).
Its battery capacity is 2,700 mAh, its dimensions are 146 x 70.4 x 8 mm, and it weighs 146g. It runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
Perhaps the most interesting detail about this device is its price. The Archos 50 Diamond will retail for €199, which is a decent amount given the specs here and the LTE connectivity. Unfortunately though, the 50 Diamond will only make it to the market in early 2015.
