Archos, a French company, popular for its cheap products, has again pleasantly surprised its lovers by announcing a rugged tablet powered by Android OS.
The new product is titled Archos 101 Saphir that will be in public hands somewhere in June, which is hoped to be reasonably priced (yet to disclose). The tablet will be unveiled at the mega mobile event Mobile World Congress (MWC) that has started from yesterday and will last till March 2.
It is hoped that the curious followers would bring a more closed insider view of the product.
Although, the specs are not much captivating, especially for those who might compare them with the mainstream brands of the market, a nice try, however, has been given for a very cheap price tag, as the company has been doing in the past.
The casing is rugged that can survive rough handling and a drop of almost one meter, in addition to dust and water splashes, which make it qualified for the IP54 certification.
Similarly, another revealing feature is the operating system that has given the tablet a boost to be liked by general critics. It is shipped with Android 7.0 Nougat.
If we critique the hardware that has been housed by the device, we would end up in calling it a very boring and unimpressive collection, which can only catch public interest if it was offered on very cheap prices.
The tablet showcases a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, with a 1GB RAM and 16GB expandable memory.
Likewise, Archos 101 Saphir features a large 10.1-inch IPS display with an appealing 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Similar goes with the camera combo that is comprised of a 5-megapixel rear-face and 2-megapixel selfie camera.
However, let’s not get disappointed from everywhere. The device pleases you with a pretty attractive 6,000 mAh battery that will keep you alive for considerably long time.
Subsidiary specs are USB Type-C, 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth, micro HDMI GPS, and Wi-Fi connectivity as well.
