Today, ARCHOS announced that it will expand and complete its range of Oxygen tablets introduced earlier this year with a newly-unveiled model called the ARCHOS 133 Oxygen. Like the previous models, the size of the tablet is revealed by the moniker itself, and unsurprisingly the ARCHOS 133 Oxygen is a fairly large tablet boasting a 13.3-inch display. According to ARCHOS, the 133 Oxygen was designed “to match users’ needs at home”, and the size of the screen surely reflects that. The company claims, or hopes that the new slate “will become the must-have family companion this season”.
Digging deeper into the tablet’s specifications will reveal a Full HD IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and a Rockchip RK3368 system-on-chip housing an octa-core processor clocked at up to 1.5 GHz, and a PowerVR SGX6110 graphics chip “for enjoying blazing 3D games and 4K videos”. The processor works hand in hand with 2 GB of DDR3 RAM, and users will have 64 GB of on-board EMMC storage at their disposal, along with the option of expanding the storage externally via microSD by up to an additional 128 GB. Multimedia users who may want to capture images using a rather large 13.3-inch tablet will rely on a 5-megapixel main camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing sensor. Overall, the ARCHOS 133 Oxygen tablet measures 339 x 219 x 10.5 millimeters, it weighs 1170 grams, and houses a generous 10,000 mAh battery which should provide enough juice for ~5 hours of video playback time, or up to 168 hours of stand by. The slate runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, it is equipped with 2 built-in speakers, and as far as connectivity is concerned users will rely on 2 micro-USB connectors, a 3.5-millimeter audio jack, a micro HDMI port, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS / A-GPS, and Wi-Fi.
The ARCHOS 133 Oxygen will be available for purchase from the manufacturer’s official website and through worldwide distribution channels in November, for the starting price of £179.99 (US$238 at today’s conversion rate). Although the official announcement took place today in London, the company will also exhibit the ARCHOS 133 Oxygen at IFA 2016 in Berlin along with the new ARCHOS 55 Diamond Selfie smartphone, hopefully with additional details for release, pricing, and availability in tow.
