The budget smartphones will start at just 100 Euros and ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop.

The Archos 50c and 55 Platinum will ship next month for 100 Euros and 130 Euros, respectively. Both will carry an HD display and a Crystal color case.

While very similar, the two smartphones will differ mostly in size and weight. Specifications for the Archos 50c include:

  • 5-inch HD display
  • 143.4 x 72 x 10.3 mm dimensions
  • 158 grams
  • 2000 mAh removable battery

And Archos 55 Platnium:

  • 5.5-inch HD display
  • 153.4 x 78.2 x 8.3 mm dimensions
  • 164 grams
  • 2400 mAh removable battery

Otherwise, core features are identical:

  • Unspecified 1.5 GHz quad-core SoC (likely MediaTek)
  • 1 GB RAM
  • MicroSD support
  • Dual SIM (Mini-SIM and Micro-SIM)
  • 13 MP rear camera + 2 MP front camera
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop

The French manufacturer is much larger in Europe than in the States. Thus, it remains to be seen if the 50c and 55 Platinum will make it to North America.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
