Right ahead of IFA, Archos has announced yet another smartphone. This is Diamond-branded like the Diamond S we told you about not long ago. Yet in this case we're looking at a device that's more into phablet territory, in fact bridging the gap between the 5-inch Diamond S and the Diamond Tab.
The Archos Diamond Plus comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 16 MP rear camera with LED flash, an 8 MP selfie snapper, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 4G LTE support, dual-SIM functionality, and a 2,800 mAh battery with fast charging.
At the helm we find MediaTek's MT6753 64-bit SoC with a 1.5 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and Mali-T720MP3 GPU. The phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. Its dimensions are 152.6 x 76.4 x 8.4 mm, and it weighs 178g.
It will become available in Europe in November, SIM-free and unlocked, for a recommended retail price of £179.99.
What is the best Archos phone?
The phone name sound cheap. I dislike it
I hate Mediatek, you see T720 MP3, not even 4. They are allways so, even high-end models are cripled somehow. Why they just don't make a powerful soc with powerful gpu, no because cheap means really cheap for them.
