The White version complements the existing Black version, though unfortunately with no price drops from the original 230 Euro asking price.

The Archos Diamond S was revealed in late August of last year with a Black case for 230 Euros. The latest White version makes no internal or major external changes, so users can expect the same 6.5 mm thick case and 5-inch Super AMOLED 720p display.

Core performance is provided by an octa-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6753 SoC, Mali-T720 GPU, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB eMMC with MicroSD support. The Archos Fusion software allows both the internal and external storage devices to behave as a single larger drive. Wireless features include 4G LTE and Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi Direct.

The smartphone will ship with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and a 2300 mAh battery for an advertised runtime of 7.5 hours during video playback. The Micro-USB 2.0 charging port is the standard 5 V/1 A power connection.

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.
