With Mobile World Congress kicking off officially in a few hours’ time, you can be sure that there will be a slew of new devices that will roll out from various manufacturers, and all of them would be jostling for your attention (and eventually, your loyalty – which translates to spending an amount of money at the end of it all, of course). ARCHOS’ smartphones might not be as universally flamboyant as the iPhone 6 or the Galaxy S series from Samsung, but they do have a place in the scheme of things – and the ARCHOS 50 Oxygen Plus is an Android-powered device that is set to debut at MWC 2015, of course.
The ARCHOS 50 Oxygen Plus is the latest smartphone from the company, where it claims to deliver outstanding ergonomics in a superb slim design and powerful performance – for what can be deemed to be a relative bargain, as the asking price for an unlocked handset stands at less than $200.
Your eyes will definitely be more than happy with the ultra-bright HD screen that sports a 1,280 × 800 resolution, where it will bring a slew of images as well as videos to life. Despite being extremely slim, which will no doubt have a say in the battery size eventually, the battery life is maximized thanks to an energy efficient way of engineering. All in all, this smartphone would not measure more than 0.3” thin when you place it in your pocket.
An octo-core 3G processor will be mated to a powerful GPU, and thi means the ARCHOS 50 Oxygen Plus will be able to enjoy games, video and applications without missing a beat. At the back of the smartphone lies an 8MP camera with LED flash, while selfie lovers can check out the 5MP front facing camera that sports multiple picture taking modes to capture crystal clear memories.
To make sure that you will maximize your life with a single handset, the ARCHOS 50 Oxygen Plus will be equipped with a pair of SIM slots for multi-tasking, and there is also a microSD memory card slot for further expansion purposes.
