Archos has a pair of new smartphones, the Diamond 2 Plus and Diamond 2 Note. Both feature similar designs and an impressive roster of features considering their mid-range prices. Archos won’t be launching the phones until this upcoming May, but it has detailed both of them ahead of that launch. Features include Android Marshmallow, USB-C, a borderless display, and more.

The Diamond 2 Plus is the ‘lesser’ of the two, featuring a MediaTek Helio P10 SoC with eight 64-bit cores — half are 1.2GHz and the other are 2.0GHz. This is alongside a Mali T860MP2 GPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage.

The display is mid-range at 1920 x 1080/5.5-inches, making for 400ppi. As well, the smartphone features a 20MP image sensor on the back and an 8MP camera on the front. Security features include a fingerprint sensor, and there’s USB-C connectivity.

The phone launches in May for $229 USD.
