ARCHOS Diamond 2 Note & Plus Smartphones are Big, Priced Low

ARCHOS Diamond 2 Note

ARCHOS aims to shakeup the budget Android smartphone market with the introduction two phablet sized smartphones with 5.5-inch or 6-inch screens, priced at $229 and $269 respectively. The smaller, cheaper phone is called the Diamond 2 Plus and the larger one is called the Diamond 2 Note (pictured top).  From first glance it appears ARCHOS to not only be stealing looks and design from Apple and Samsung, but also naming convention. Apple makes the iPhone 6s Plus at 5.5-inches, while the larger Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a 5.7-inch screen.

Otherwise all we know right now are the specifications differences, and a release date of May 2016 is expected.
