ARCHOS to show off two new 4G phones at CES

ARCHOS, while not being the most popular of smartphone manufacturers, will be showcasing two new unlocked smartphones at CES 2014. The 50 Helium 4G and the 45 Helium 4G are the company’s first LTE smartphones, and will most likely be causing quite a stir with their price points.

The 45 Helium 4G will be offered for $200, with a 4.5-inch 854×480 screen and 4GB of storage. It will also have a 5MP rear-facing camera, a front-facing VGA camera, and 1,700 mAh Li-ion battery.

The 50 Helium 4G will go for $250, with a 5-inch 720p screen and 8GB of storage. It will have an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and 2,000 mAh Li-ion battery.

Both phones offer a 1.4 GHz Quad Core Qualcomm processor, 1GB of RAM, and a MicroSD card slot for expandable memory.

While we haven’t laid our hands on the phones yet, it’s really nice to see manufacturers begin to offer low-priced smartphones. Could this be a Moto G rival? With it’s introduction on LTE, it could possibly be so. Any thoughts on this one? We’d love to hear them!
