Archos unveils four new devices, including an 8 inch tablet ahead of MWC

Archos, the French consumer electronics company known for its budget offerings has just announced four new devices in the market, which includes three new smartphones and a tablet. The company may have unveiled these four devices before the Mobile World Congress because tech giants like Samsung and HTC will most likely steal the show in Barcelona.

The company’s flagship for this year will be the Archos 50c Oxygen. It will come with a 5″ 720p screen along with a powerful 1.7Ghz Octa Core MediaTek processor.  On the back, there will be an 8MP camera and it will run on Android 4.2 Jellybean. The phone will have dual sim card slots and will only have 1GB RAM along with 8GB internal storage. As expected, the device is quite affordable and will be available for sale for £200.
