Archos has finally announced their upcoming series of smartphones which were leaked earlier on the web. The French phone makers have been continuously working on this project of new Mid-Range Android smartphones and today they came up with 3 smartphones named Archos 35 Carbon, Archos 50 Platinum and the Archos 53 Platinum.
All the specs of these devices found to be the same as were reported in the leak documents a week ago. All of the 3 smartphone came with Qualcomm and IPS plus touchscreen with support for Dual-Screen.
Archos 35 Carbon:
It is the lightest phone in this range, with a price of $120 it is regarded as one of the low-range smartphone but came up with cool specifications.

Its connectivity is complete up to HSPA 7.2 and has WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and FM radio. The processor is a 1GHz Qualcomm 7225A accompanied by 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage expandable via microSD cards.
As for cameras not surprising, in that price you would accept a VGA sensor too and if there are two of them i.e a rear and a front camera then you will find yourself so lucky. The Archos 35 Carbon came with older version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and company doesn’t seem to be planning any update for this unit to the next Android version.
