First Android Go smartphone with 5.7-inch display that costs less than $100 unveiled
It looks like Google's Android Go project is getting more and more supporters each month. After Samsung introduced its first ever Android Go smartphone, Archos, a less-known handset manufacturer headquartered in Europe, unveiled its own take on the light Android OS.

What's interesting about Archos' new smartphone is that it's the first to run Android Oreo Go Edition and boast a massive 5.7-inch display with 18:9 ratio. Dubbed Archos Access 57 4G, the device will be available from October 2018 throughout Europe for just €79.99.

This budget-friendly smartphone is far from being impressive when it comes to specs, but that's quite understandable considering its low price. According to Archos, the Access 57 4G packs a 1.4GHz quad-core Spreadtrum SC9832E processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. Just so you know, the cheapest model comes with only 8GB storage and lacks 4G, but both versions feature microSD card slot to expand storage up to 64GB.

The 5.7-inch TN display features FWVGA+ (960 x 480 pixels) resolution, and there's also an 8-megapixel camera on the back, along with a secondary 2-megapixel camera in the front. Also, Archos Access 57 4G is powered by a 2,400 mAh battery and comes with dual-SIM (2x Nano SIM) support.
