Archos-Diamond-SArchos might not necessarily be one of your mainstream brands when it comes to Android devices, but the company has created several Android smartphones and tablets in the past that have typically been rather affordable, and the company’s latest device is no exception. The company has recently announced the Archos Diamond S.

This is an Android handset that will cost £159.99, which after conversion will set you back around $250, making it very affordable especially when you consider the other Android smartphones in the market that could cost you twice that amount, or more. So what can you expect for $250?

For starters we suppose you shouldn’t expect too much. The Archos Diamond S will feature a MediaTek octa-core processor which should be more than enough to get the job done. It will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a microSD card slot for memory expansion, dual SIM support, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a 16MP rear-facing camera.

It will also come with a 2,300mAh battery and will run on Android 5.1 Lollipop. No word on specific availability just yet, but it is expected that it should be released in the later part of the year during November, but more details about the handset and other Archos products will be revealed at IFA 2015 next week.
