Archos Cobalt Series

Yet more news from CES 2016, and another announcement from Archos. Along with announcing the Archos Power series, they also announced the Archos Cobalt series.

Archos Cobalt Series:

The Archos Cobalt Series takes its cue from Archos 50 Diamond and Archos 50c Platinum phones which were full of colour. The Archos Cobalt series is no exception, coming in two colours Cobalt blue and dark grey front and back.

The Archos 50 Cobalt and Archos 55 Cobalt Plus both have a full HD IPS display measuring 5″ and 5.5″ respectively. They are both powered by a Quad-Core processor with 1GB of RAM for the 50 Cobalt and 2GB for the 55 Cobalt.

Both in the Archos Cobalt series have a 8GB or 16GB variant and can add more through an SD Card slot. The 50 Cobalt has a 8MP camera on the back, whilst the 55 Cobalt has a 16MP camera on the back.

With the Archos Cobalt series launching in April, the Archos 50 Cobalt will be available for €99 (£72) and the Archos 55 Cobalt + from €129 (£96).
