This new 10.1-inch Android tablet comes with a Rockchip 3399 processor, next to 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and a generous battery that provides a capacity of no less than 6,600 mAh.

Archos has a few new devices ready for this year's IFA trade show, as they usually do. The new Archos Diamond Tab comes two years after the original one and features a metallic case, a larger display, and more powerful hardware overall.

The original Archos Diamond Tab was the company's first octa-core 4G LTE tablet and featured a MediaTek MT8752 processor, next to 3 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The new model has a 10.1-inch display (7.9-inch on the Diamond Tab that was launched back in 2015) with 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, a hexa-core Rockchip 3399 processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and microSD support. Its two cameras offer 5 MP (front) and 13 MP (back), a solid improvement over the 2 MP + 5 MP pair available on the old Diamond Tab. At last, we should mention the 6,600 mAh battery and Android Nougat.

The new Archos Diamond Tab is scheduled to hit Europe in October, carrying a price tag of EUR€299.99. This amount is equivalent with US$357, but there is no information about its arrival in the US. Now, Archos only has offices in Europe and Asia.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
