The 50 Graphite and 55 Graphite bring the dual camera setup to the masses, being expected to become available for purchase in June, starting around €130 EUR (roughly $137 USD).

French company Archos will bring two interesting handsets at MWC 2017, both offering a set of premium features, but also keeping the price in the entry-range area. Some sacrifices had to be made to achieve this, but the 50 Graphite and 55 Graphite look like two attractive smartphones.

The set of common specs and features of the Archos 50 Graphite and 55 Graphite includes 16 GB internal storage, Android 7.0 Nougat, USB Type-C, a fingerprint reader, as well as a 13 MP + 2 MP dual camera setup on the back, next to a 5 MP front selfie snapper. Some of the other highlights are these:

  • Archos 55 Graphite - MediaTek MT6737, 2 GB RAM, 5.5-inch IPS full HD, 3,000 mAh
  • Archos 50 Graphite - unknown processor, 1 GB RAM, 5-inch HD

Dual-SIM support and the ability to use microSD cards up to 128 GB are also present. Sadly, those interested to acquire a Graphite handset still have to wait a few months. While both will be present at Archos' MWC 2017 booth (hall 6, booth #B60), the detailed specs and information on availability and pricing will only become public at launch, in June.

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.
