Archos announce Diamond Plus, 5.5-inch 1080p display, 16MP camera, 4G LTE for £179.99

ARCHOS has announced Diamond Plus, a new smartphone that will also be the second model under the Diamond range.

“There’s no reason customers should have only one model option in our quest to offer 4G/LTE smartphones to a greater public. Offering a larger-screened product with a slightly different design gives ARCHOS customers more diversity and choice,” says Loic Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS.

The Diamond Plus, looks much like its smaller counterpart: thin (8.4mm), curved, and silver. It packs the same octa-core 1.5GHz, Mediatek MT6753 processor too, plus an identical RAM and storage count — 2GB and 16GB (expandable via MicroSD), respectively.

The screen is the differentiator: It’s a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, 1.5 times the resolution of the panel on the Diamond S (720p) and fully laminated.

The Diamond Plus includes a 4G LTE radio, dual-SIM support, and a 2,850mAh battery. Its cameras, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and 8-megapixel front shooter, feature distortion-reducing lenses. And it’s got fast charging.
