Like many other electronics companies, Archos is prepping for the upcoming IFA 2015 in Berlin. Among the devices the company plans to present at the trade show are the Archos Diamond S and 50e Helium smartphones.

As the latest addition to the Diamond line, the Archos Diamond S (pictured above) features powerful specs and great design while maintaining a reasonable price. On the other hand, the Archos 50e Helium is aimed at the more frugal mobile consumer. If you don’t feel like using Android and want Windows instead, Archos has also announced the 50 Cesium smartphone. It’s identical to the 50e Helium except that it has Windows 10.
