Archos Debuts Alexa Smart display Devices Ahead of CES 2019

By Radu Iorga

Archos is one of the most prolific French tech brands over the past years. They’ve been churning out tablets like there’s no tomorrow, even some gaming devices. Today they enter the Smart Display scene, by unleashing two new devices of the sort, ahead of CES 2019.

LG has been the headliner of the week, showcasing displays, projectors, kitchen appliances ready for CES 2019 unveiling. Now Archos comes with the logical next step after the Archos Hello which was launched in February with Google’s Smart Display platform. The new models also get Alexa integration, aside from Google’s services.

The first newcomer is the Archos Mate 5, with a 1.2 GHz quad core processor and a 5 inch Full HD display. It also has dual 3W speakers and feels a bit like an old stereo or boombox, maybe even a bread maker. It’ll retail for $129. Then we have the more stylish Mate 7 below, clocked at 1.3 Ghz and increasing the diagonal to 7 inches.

The speakers are upgraded to 10W units and the price grows to $149. Both models share 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot and a 5 MP camera. There’s also a set of Synaptics microphones with far field processing technology. Archos included a privacy switch that turns off the microphones. The Mate 5 and Mate 7 are portable and have their own batteries of 3000 mAh.

Expect a Q1 2019 debut in stores.

Archos Oxygen 101S is a New Tablet, Available From 2019, Priced Below $200

By Radu Iorga

French outfit Archos just debuted a new tablet, known as the Archos Oxygen 101S. This model is a budget offering, which promises “versatile use”. It’ll be available from Q1 2019, priced at around $169.

The French company has been on a roll over the past years, debuting a series of affordable devices and even some gaming slates. In September they debuted the Archos Oxygen 101 4G. Now we get a semi successor, taking the shape of the Archos Oxygen 101 S. This product is a 10.1 incher with an IPS LCD display with Full HD resolution. It also has a MediaTek Helio X20 processor inside, of the deca core variety.

There’s a Mali T880 GPU here that also makes the cut, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, for apps, photos and the works. A microSD card slot helps with expandable storage. Archos Oxygen 101 S stands out of the crowd of tablets through the fact it has a POGO connector. This lets you hook up accessories easily, including a keyboard and docking station. The back side includes a 5 MP camera and the front side a 2 MP shooter.

I should probably also mention there’s a fingerprint scanner in the mix. Archos Oxygen 101 S packs a 6000 mAh battery, which is supposed to last all day. Plus, it has Bluetooth and GPS, dual band WiFi and WiFi Direct. Oddly enough it has Android 9.0 Pie onboard, so Archos knows it’s doing.

MWC 2018: Archos Debuts Hello Google Assistant Smart Display, Basically a Vertical Tablet

By Radu Iorga

As expected, some companies started the MWC 2018 unveilings early, such as Archos. They’ve just unveiled a new smart speaker with a screen in the mix and Google Assistant on board. It’s called the Archos Hello and it’s going to be priced at $160 for the 7 inch model and $222 for the 8.4 inch one.

French tablet maker Archos has created a smart display and speaker in one here. The design feels a bit like the one of the Lenovo Smart Display, but the actual device is narrower and longer. We get Full HD resolution on the 7 inch or 8.4 inch display and a high fidelity speaker that takes up about half of the screen’s size. Archos Hello actually runs on Android Oreo, so that’s another reason to compare it to be a tablet.

Specs are rather modest, including a quad core CPU (unknown maker), 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. You can use this product to ask it questions via Google Assistant, but you can also stream music, make video calls via Google Duo and the 5 megapixel front camera. Plus, you can watch YouTube on it or cast stuff to the TV set. If you ask me, the design feels like a door lock.

 

Archos has been preparing something special for cryptocurrency fans over at MWC 2018. They’ve created a hardware wallet for virtual coins, called the Safe-T Mini. It stores keys and grants access to coins. That one’s priced at $62 and comes in June.
