Although ARCHOS just recently unveiled the budget-friendly Diamond S and 50e Helium smartphones, that’s not stopping the French smartphone maker from announcing yet another Android device prior to the IFA 2015 trade show. Dubbed the Diamond Tab, this new 4G LTE-capable tablet will be available for purchase sometime in October for only £179.
When it comes to specifications, the Diamond Tab features a 7.9-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2048×1536, a 64-bit 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT8752 processor, 3GB of RAM as well as 32GB of on-board storage. It also has a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing shooter, a 4800mAh battery and runs a near-vanilla version of Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.
Considering the impressive list of specifications and seemingly solid build quality, £179 is certainly not a bad price for this tablet. And just like the company’s newest smartphone offerings, the Diamond Tab will be shown off at IFA 2015. We’ll be attending IFA this year, and we’re hoping to get some quality hands-on time with the newest devices from ARCHOS.
