Model: Soon after the announcement of the 50 Helium Plus and the 55 Helium Plus, Archos officially unveils the birth of a new member, namely the Archos 50d Helium. This new phone is paired with Android 5.1 Lollipop and a 5-inch HD IPS display at a clear resolution of 1280 x 720. It can be considered a clone of the 50 Helium Plus. The main difference is its 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad core processor. In addition, it offers the convenience of dual SIM support, 1 GB of RAM and a Micro SD port to supplement the 8 GB of internal storage with an additional 64 GB. Connectivity wise, it unsurprisingly supports the fast 4G LTE network, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and GPS.
Other feature includes a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front shooter, which produce vivid and beautiful photos. The worst downside is perhaps its non-detachable 2100 mAh battery. There are not only the decent specification and superior performance, but also it comes with a unique offer – "two soft, stone-finished swappable rear panels in either Storm Blue or Stone Grey color tones", which perfectly suits every fashion stylist's taste. Overall, it is an affordable release with impressive power and budget-friendly price.
