Archos introduces three inexpensive smartphones

Written by Fudzilla staff

$99 to $249

The smartphone market is already overcrowded, but that didn’t stop Archos from introducing three inexpensive smartphones with vanilla Android.

Archos is best known for making relatively affordable Android tablets and rolling out software updates at a pace that puts many big players to shame. Hopefully its smartphone lineup will also benefit from the same level of support.

The cheapest of the lot is the 35 Carbon, a $99 Android 4.0 phone with a 1GHz processor and low res 480x320 screen. It is a fair deal, but nothing spectacular.

The Archos 50 Platinum and 53 Platinum are different beasts. They are priced at $219 and $249 respectively and they feature a quad-core Qualcomm processor. However, it’s not a Krait, it is the Qualcomm 8225Q, an A5-based chip clocked at 1,2 GHz. Both phones have 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage, backed by a microSD slot.

As the name implies, the 50 rocks a 5-inch screen, while the 53 comes with a 5.3-inch unit. In both cases the resolution is 960x540. Both have an 8-megapixel camera along with a front facing camera.

Hardly headline grabbing specs, but bear in mind that we are talking about some very affordable devices indeed.
