Archos a French-based mobile maker certainly isn’t one of the biggest names in the mobile industry. Despite of being small player, the company joins all its efforts to gain a firm market position. Earlier this week, Archos took the Berliner stage of IFA 2017 and unleashed three new smartphones lines along with a fresh tablet – eight devices in total.
It’s been a while since Archos has produced anything more than a series of little interesting budget smartphones. However, this week the French manufacturer surprised the mobile world releasing three brand new devices, a rugged tablet – Archos 101 Saphir and two affordable smartphones belonging to Graphite family that offer dual camera system. Called the Archos 50 Graphite and the Archos 55 Graphite, the phones will be launched in the second half of 2017.
Archos is putting all their efforts to unveil their flagship devices before giant companies like Samsung and LG will steal the show with their recent premiers. Unfortunately, most of such budget devices of little-known companies fall into oblivion shortly after their premiere and we rarely hear back from Diamons, Heliums and Cobalt. However, the latest phablet update to the Diamond line may change this state of thing since both the Diamond 2 Note and Diamond 2 Plus hide features that may give France-based manufacturer a stronger position in the mobile market.
The Mobile World Congress is just weeks ahead. No wonder then that we’re experiencing a real flood of announcements. Today’s one comes from Archos – a France-based company known mostly on European market for delivering low- and mid-range Android phones at very competitive prices. Dubbed Archos Oxygen 50D the phone will be another member of the Oxygen line and as the name suggest simultaneously a successor of the released two years ago Oxygen 50C.
Popular for releasing low- and mid-tier phones, Archos has just unveiled two new cheap smartphone lines for 2016. Although just as usual both the Power and Cobalt are budget-friendly dual-SIM handsets that work on Android 5.1 Lollipop, they are oriented towards different types of customers’ needs. The Power series’ biggest selling point is its massive batteries offering long endurance wrapped in compact handsets, whereas the Cobalt line offers oversized smartphones suitable to phablet sector.
It’s not everyday that smartphones are announced in groups – usually new devices go official one by one to get and keep attention as much as possible. Archos, however, is one of the companies that like to introduce multiple phones at once. This time round, the French manufacturer unveiled as many as three new handsets: the Archos Diamond S, Archos 50e Helium and Archos 50 Cesium, though the latter two are actually quite similar.
