The French electronics company Archos will also be a participant of this year’s MWC phone event that kick starts tomorrow. It seems like Archos could not wait for two more days to announce its new reasonably priced smartphones. One of which is a dual-camera phone. Archos announced yesterday the 5.5-inch Archos 55 Graphite sporting a parallel dual-camera setup on the rear similarly designed to those featured on the iPhone 7 Plus and a cheaper — smaller version of it, Archos 50 Graphite.
The Archos 55 Graphite phone sports a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and is topped by a round edge design and plastic body. It features a 13MP phase detection autofocus camera made by Samsung and a secondary 2MP depth-measuring camera to make up its dual camera trend. A 5MP unit makes its selfie camera, the 55 Graphite phone by Archos has LED flash on both sides.
The dual camera smartphone by Archos is powered by MediaTek MT6737 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage that supports microSD up to 128GB, and tops with Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade. Its smaller sibling, the Archos 50 Graphite has a 5-inch HD display, one GB of RAM, the same 16GB of expandable memory and also the Android 7.
The 55 Graphite (which is only of two to find its place on the Archos website phone listing) will be supporting two SIM cards, run the 4G LTE network, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery that should give the phone a decent battery lifespan. Pricing of the Archos 55 Graphite and Archos 50 Graphite is said to be starting at 130 Euros, around $139.
