Archos now presents the 55 Diamond Selfie smartphone
The French smartphone maker Archos has been unusually active in the past few weeks. After releasing several smartphones the company is back with a new one called Archos 55 Diamond Selfie. All this happens just two days after Archos launched the 50 Saphir model.
The new Archos 55 Diamond Selfie smartphone is somewhat better than the announced 50 Saphir model. It does not come with a rugged chassis like the 50 Saphir but it features better hardware. The Archos 55 Diamond Selfie is built around a 5.5-inch IPS display that works at 1920 x 1080 pixels and that gets protected by Asahi Glass Dragontrail technology. The back panel is made of a material that is scratch-resistant while to the sides the chassis is made of metallic elements.
The Archos 55 Diamond Selfie offers the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, which comes with eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 1.4 GHz and Adreno 505 graphics. The device has 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory (it can be expanded with a microSD memory card up to 128 GB), a 16 MP rear camera with a LED flash, an 8 MP front camera and a fingerprint reader. The handset also has 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 3000 mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Archos 55 Diamond Selfie will be on the market next month. The price of the handset is unknown.
