Archos took the wraps off two new budget friendly Android smartphones dubbed 50 Helium Plus and 55 Helium Plus. Priced at $109 and $139 respectively, the duo of 4G LTE handsets will deliver Android 5.1 Lollipop on the cheap.
Both smartphones feature 64-bit MediaTek MT6735P chipset with 1GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable storage. The couple also shares a 13MP main camera with LED flash and 5MP front-facing unit.
The duo of devices offer dual-SIM functionality. The rest of the connectivity options include Cat. 4 LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, microUSB 2.0, and GPS with A-GPS.
As its model number suggests, Archos 55 Helium Plus packs a 5.5” 720p IPS display with 267ppi. The device is powered by a 2,400mAh battery/
Archos 50 Helium Plus on the other hand offers a sharper 5” 720p IPS display with 293ppi. Unsurprisingly, it has a smaller 2,000mAh battery than its larger sibling.
The smartphones will be available to order next month. The 55 Helium Plus will come with a 16GB microSD card in its retail box.
