We haven’t been talking much about products from the French manufacturer Archos in the past, and we think it is the right time to change that as they have just released a new Android smartphone called 50c Oxygen.
New smartphone from Archos 50c Oxygen comes with 5 inch IPS screen which has HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and has capabilities of displaying 16.7 million colors.
It is powered by MedieTek’s octo core MT6592 SoC processor which cores are running on 1.7 Ghz, and Oxygen features 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage and has support for Dual-SIM use.
If the default 8 GB of internal storage is not enough for you, you can expand it by adding a micro SD card of up to 64 GB to the available slot.
As most smartphones today, Archos has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS support and both front and back cameras.
The main, back camera features a BSI sensor and can snap pictures up to 8 megapixels, and it has additional features like Advanced Autofocus and LED flash, as well as ability to record Full HD 1080p videos.
The front camera which is meant for video calls comes with the resolution of 2 megapixels.
The size of the device is 145 x 69.8 x 7.64 mm, and it weighs 140 grams. The device is powered by 2000 mAh battery and Archos has decided that the device starting operating system will be Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
The device is available for purchase and it costs 179 pounds in the UK and around $300 in the United States.
