Archos, most famous for its affordable tablets, has announced three new Android smartphones last week that will be pretty easy on your wallet. The phones could be an interesting alternative for those who want Android experience but don’t want to pay extra for the brand. The new lineup comprises three low- to mid-range phones: the Archos 35 Carbon, Archos 50 Platinum and Archos 53 Platinum, priced at $99, $219 and $250 respectively. All handsets should be available in Europe by the end of May.

The Archos 35 Carbon features a 3.5-inch display with 320 x 480 resolution and is powered by a 1 GHz Qualcomm 7225A processor. It offers 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory expandable up to 32 GB via microSD slot. The phone is equipped with rear and front-facing cameras, both of a VGA quality. Other features include dual SIM, a 1,300 mAh battery and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Archos 50 Platinum comes with a 5-inch qHD display, dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm 8225Q cortex-A5 processor and 1 GB of RAM. Just like its smaller brother, the 50 Platinum packs 4 GB of storage but its microSD slot is compatible with up to 64 GB cards. The handset also sports 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 2,000 mAh battery. The device runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The Archos 53 Platinum is almost identical to the 50 Platinum model, with the exception of its 5.3-inch display and a 2,800 mAh battery. It is also worth noting that all three phones have been certified by Google and will provide full support for Google mobile services.
