When it comes to budget smartphones, there is a reason why they are budget and that is because manufacturers will omit certain features or choose to use lower-end specs compared to flagship handsets. This makes perfect sense, but sometimes customers on a budget tend to be left out of certain things.

However if you’re after a budget smartphone that won’t make you feel left out, you might be interested to learn that ARCHOS has announced two new phones ahead of MWC 2017 in the form of the ARCHOS 50 Graphite and 55 Graphite. What makes these phones different from most budget handsets is that they come with certain features that tend to only find their way onto high-end devices.

This comes in the form of a fingerprint sensor and dual-lens cameras on the back. Both these features will be shared across either device, although there will be some differences. For example the 55 Graphite will feature a 5.5-inch Full HD display and a 1.5GHz MediaTek quad-core processor under the hood, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.

The 50 Graphite on the other hand will be smaller at 5-inches and will sport less RAM at 1GB, but other than that it seems that both phones should share relatively similar specs. Interestingly enough ARCHOS has put a disclaimer in which they state that specs may vary by country, but hopefully we’ll have more details when these phones are demoed at MWC 2017 next week.
