It is part of the Diamond range designed in partnership with the Chinese brand Nubia, a subsidiary of the ZTE Group. Being an entry-level phablet, the Diamond Gamma offers a more affordable price and takes the design of an existing model of the Nubia catalog. This ultra-affordable and stylish Archos Diamond Gamma smartphone is less than 8 mm thin and made of robust aluminum. It is available in two colors, which are black and gold. It also looks stunning with its 2.5D glass construction. This gives it an almost seamless look, making it easy to handle and use every day. It features a 5.5-inch IPS 2.5D screen, which delivers more multitasking possibilities with moveable screen borders. As for operating system, it runs on Google Android 7.0 Nougat for increased responsiveness and fluidity, allowing users to multitask and experience personalized settings. The enhanced version of the new application interface combines simplicity, colorful and abstract design for more intuitive and successful experiences, designed to take care of user habits and memories. At the front, the webcam is a 5 megapixel model with f/2.4 aperture. Its audio chipset is optimized DTS. A 3.5 mm jack is present to connect a headset. Also, a fingerprint reader is present at the front, under the screen.

There are also a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The storage of the smartphone can be further expanded up to 128 GB with the microSDXC card slot. The Archos Diamond Gamma gives a great user experience whether user open one or ten applications. User will also see the smooth running and fluidity of all applications and games. This smartphone claims to offer all the power and fluidity of a PC. It is ideal to consult, modify or print documents as well as to access emails and the internet. The rear camera has 13 MP, but the front camera is slightly less impressive than the Diamond Alpha’s being on 5 MP. It also offers clone functionality to duplicate the subject multiple times, slow motion and panorama mode to allow shooting in wide format. User can also discover the photographic suite, offering a multitude of different functions and filters. Finally, user can have fun taking a selfie with the 5 MP front camera. This smartphone comes with a 3,000 mAh battery, which is only a little bit higher than the Archos Diamond’s battery by 50 mAh. The battery recharges from a microUSB port. The Archos Diamond Gamma is compatible with 4G networks (LTE category 4), WiFi n, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and GPS (Glonass and Beidou).
