With IFA kicking off, there will be a number of announcements coming through relating to a wealth of devices which will become available in the coming months. That said, ARCHOS has been getting their announcements off to a flying start and have already confirmed a number of new devices which are set for a Fall release and which will be debuting at this year’s IFA event. In terms of smartphones, ARCHOS has already announced the Diamond S which joins their Diamond range of devices, along with the 50e Helium, which as the name suggests, joins the Helium range of devices. However, that was not all as ARCHOS also confirmed a new tablet joining the Diamond range, the Diamond Tab. Well, not finished with the Diamond announcements just yet, ARCHOS has also now announced a larger device joining the Diamond family as the Diamond Plus.

In terms of the specs, the Diamond Plus will be very much in the phablet range of devices, sporting a 5.5-inch IPS display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution Inside, the Diamond Plus will come loaded with 2GB RAM and powered by a MediaTek (MT6753) octa-core processor. In terms of cameras, the Diamond Plus will come equipped with a 16-megapixel rear camera which is coupled with an 8-megapixel front facing option. While storage will be set at 16GB as standard, there will be the option to expand thanks to the inclusion of a microSD card slot. Additional features on offer will include dual-SIM, LTE support and the device will come powered by a 2850 mAh battery. Not forgetting, the Diamond Plus will come running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.

In terms of availability, not much is known about region specifics, although ARCHOS has confirmed that the Diamond Plus will become available in November and will be priced at £179.99. Like the already announced ARCHOS devices, ARCHOS has also confirmed that the Diamond Plus will be on show at IFA for those who are nearby and would like to check it out for themselves.
