Archos could not way for February 22nd where in Barcelona will be held the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show to unveil its new high-end smartphone, Archos 50d Oxygen and revealed it a few days earlier. The surprise is ruined but the phone will make its official show off at the MWC 2016 as planned. Archos releases the 50d Oxygen as one of the best budget phones with the latest OS and decent specs.
The Archos 50d Oxygen is proudly represented as the descendant of the successor Archos 50c Oxygen, but to know that for sure must wait until May when the phone will be available to order.
What Archos has brought to compete the whole list of “high-end” smartphones consists of a 5-inch handset with a full HD IPS Laminated display sporting 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, a 13MP rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and a 5MP selfie-snapper at the front.

What can list this product as a high-end might be the support of 4G LTE connectivity (even though there are mid-rangers with better specs around) in addition there is included the Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, and micro-USB for charging and data transfer.
