Archos Confirms Smartphone Release

Archos turned its hands to mobile phone making when it launched three handsets earlier this week.

Headlining the event was the Archos 50 Platinum, which sports a five-inch screen, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB internal storage.

It also packs an eight mega-pixel camera has dual-sim capabilities and runs a "pure" version of Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2.

It was joined by a larger version with a 5.3-inch screen called the Archos 53 platinum, which is powered by a larger 2,800mAh battery, but the other specifications were the same as the 50 Platinum.

The third handset showcased was a budget-friendly device dubbed the Archos 35 Carbon, which carried a 3.5-inch screen and runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich and features 512MB of RAM.

All three phones will be released at the end of May and will come unlocked as default. The high-end Archos 50 Platinum will be £179.99, the bigger Archos 53 Platinum will be £199.99 and the low-end 35 Carbon will be just £79.99.
