Archos announce the Diamond S

Archos 2Today, the French brand ARCHOS is excited to announce its newest addition to the ARCHOS Diamond line: the ARCHOS Diamond S!

“There is an enormous demand for superlative smartphones like the ARCHOS Diamond S at prices that the average person can afford,” explains Loic Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS. “We’re happy to be releasing this product that furthers the mission of technical quality for everyone.”

ARCHOS: a story of high-technology democratization

Through its releases of 4G/LTE and impeccably-designed products, ARCHOS has established itself as the foremost democratizer of top-rate technology. Recent high-end ARCHOS smartphone releases have included the ARCHOS 50 Diamond and the newest ARCHOS Helium smartphones, which have been well-received by critics and customers. The new ARCHOS Diamond S embodies this same democratic high-tech spirit and builds upon its legacy with its powerful octa-core processor, exceptional specifications, and sexy design for under £159.99.

Archos

World-class features, one device

The ARCHOS Diamond S has a 5” Super AMOLED Gorilla Glass 3 screen that puts the smartphone in the premier leagues of screen quality. Its flat, glass-finish design is a perfect external manifestation of the outstanding technology inside the device. Sleek and slim, the phone slides easily into a pocket and nestles comfortably in the palm of a hand with its 118 grams. With just once glance, the design hints at all the brilliance that lies therein.

It also features an Octa-Core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage, so music, games, and content can be enjoyed without compromises in speed or storage. To complement this performance, the smartphone comes installed with Android 5.1 Lollipop, Android’s newest operating system. Battery management, push notification display, and user interface are all improved in this new OS. It also has fast charging capability to be fully ready as soon as possible.

The ARCHOS Diamond S offers dual cameras with impressive specs, so there is no need to settle for mediocre picture quality when using a cell phone to snap shots instead of a standalone camera. The back camera captures scenes at 16 MP and the front-camera takes 8 MP pictures for excellent selfie and videochatting visuals. As is customary for the ARCHOS Diamond line, the ARCHOS Diamond S will offer 4G/LTE connectivity for the fastest download speeds available on cellular networks today.

The ARCHOS Diamond S will be presented at IFA in Berlin, beginning September 4, 2015. For more on the ARCHOS story and the brand’s products, the ARCHOS booth will be in Hall 4.2/121.

The ARCHOS Diamond S will be available in November 2015 for the impressively low price of £159.99.

Leaking the Huawei Nexus 6

QQ_20150824155811Some images have appeared online today of what could possibly be the Huawei Nexus 6 refresh. A few days ahead of the Huawei launch of their new flagship phone these images may be something other than the new Nexus. The claims are coming from a Google+ user, Tiessen Fu insisting the device was given to him by a friend working on the Nexus successor.

For a design this radically different to the current Nexus 6 Google may be making some insane marketing choices. However, there is a lot to be said about breaking the mould and going with something different. It would be a hard sell to ask a company to keep some of the design influences from the previous model built by an entirely different manufacturer. Certainly companies do this however with a Nexus there is no need to imitate as the name and brand are already established.

I hope this is the new Nexus 6, whilst many are suggesting that it is a ugly ducking I find it refreshing to see something a little different.
