Archos is all set to enter the mobile arena with the launch of three new Android-powered smartphones later this year. According to a report by Russian publication Hi-Tech, the French consumer electronics company will soon add a range of Platinum handsets running Android to its portfolio.
The company recently announced three “Platinum” tablets that come equipped with high-definition IPS displays, 1.2GHz quad-core processors, microSD ports, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.1 at a low price tag.
With similar looks as that of Samsung's hot-selling Galaxy S III, Archos's flagship smartphone will offer a 4.8-inch 1280 x 800 display, 1.7GHz quad-core processor. Powered by Android 4.1 operating system, it is expected to carry a price tag of $335.
The other two budget-friendly handsets are still scant on detail. BGR reports:
ARCHOS is also said to be planning a low-end 5.2-inch handset with a 800 x 480-pixel display and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a 3.5-inch single-core phone that could retail for around $120.
If the latest report is anything to go by, these handsets will hit the stores as early as May.
