The Archos Diamond S boasts a Super AMOLED screen, will be released in November

The Archos Diamond S boasts a Super AMOLED screen, will be released in November
While most smartphones that feature Super AMOLED screens are made by Samsung, from time to time, we get to see non-Samsung handsets that use this display technology. The latest is the Archos Diamond S, which was announced today.

The Super AMOLED screen of the Archos Diamond S is a 5-inch one with 720 x 1280 pixels, so this is obviously not a high-end device. The new smartphone is powered by an octa-core, 64-bit MediaTek MT6753 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. On the glass-like back, the Diamond S has a 16 MP camera, while on the front you'll find an 8 MP camera. Other features include LTE connectivity, dual SIM support, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2300 mAh battery. Archos will start selling the Diamond S in November (in the US and Europe), asking about $200 for it.

Also today, Archos announced its first Windows 10 Mobile-based smartphone: the 50 Cesium (which actually has an Android Lollipop equivalent called 50e Helium). All three new Archos smartphones will be showcased in early September at IFA 2015.
