Archos unveils its bezel-less Diamond Omega flagship killer, coming soon for €500

Archos is mostly known for its rather cheap Android smartphones, as the French company didn't seem to be interested in the high-end segment. The new Diamond Omega marks a premier for Archos since this is the company's first true flagship smartphone.

The Diamond Omega is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, paired with no less than 8GB RAM and 128GB internal memory (no microSD slot included). Another major improvement over its previous smartphones is the 5.73-inch display with Quad HD (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

On the back, Archos' top-tier smartphone boasts a dual-camera setup (23MP + 12MP cameras), while in the front there's another dual-camera setup comprising of two 5-megapixel selfie snappers.

The 3,100 mAh battery powering the Diamond Omega should provide up to 5 hours of talk time, and it can't be removed from the phone.

It's also worth mentioning the smartphone comes with USB Type-C port with 3.5mm audio jack adapter, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and dual SIM support. Since this is rebranded ZTE Nubia Z17S, it runs with Android 7.1 Nougat operating system with NUBIA UI 5.0 on top.

Finally, Archos announced its Diamond Omega flagship killer will be available for purchase in Europe for €500. The smartphone will be launched in both Black and Blue color variants.
