Archos launches the Diamond Omega with bezel-less 18:9 screen

Earlier this year Archos launched two phones that looked suspiciously like nubia devices by ZTE. Today a new device appeared on the French company’s website and guess what - it is a rebranded ZTE nubia again.

The Archos Diamond Omega comes with an 18:9 bezel-less screen and two front-facing cameras, just like the ZTE nubia Z17S, announced yesterday.

The Diamond Omega has Snapdragon 835 chipset, coupled with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, but no microSD slot. The display measures 5.73” in diagonal and comes with 2160x1080 pixel resolution. The Diamond Omega runs on a skinned Android 7.1 Nougat.

The primary camera setup round the back has 23 MP + 12 MP modules. The main is the 12 MP one that has a f/1.8 aperture, while the other comes with f/2.0 lens and 2x zoom. The two cameras on the front are 5 MP both and should provide bokeh effect.

There is a 3,100mAh battery that is charged through a USB-C port. The fingerprint scanner is on the back.

The phone is expected to arrive in Europe for €499.99 in either Black or Blue.
