Archos likes diamonds, or so it would seem judging by the French company’s latest announcements. A couple of days ago we saw the Diamond S smartphone being introduced, and today it’s time for a Diamond-branded tablet to become official.
We’re talking about the Archos Diamond Tab. This iPad Mini competitor (based on its size) comes with built-in 4G LTE support and an affordable price.
It has a 7.9-inch 2,048×1,536 IPS touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing unit, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a 4,800 mAh battery. It’s powered by MediaTek’s MT8752 64-bit chipset boasting a 1.7 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU.
Cat.4 LTE is in, with theoretical peak download speeds of up to 150Mbps, and you also get Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The tablet runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. Its dimensions are 202 x 134 x 7.8 mm, and it weighs 360g.
The Archos Diamond Tab will become available in October for £179, which is not a bad price at all considering the specs.
