Archos unveils new Oxygen tablet in three different sizes

archos oxygen 70 80 101b news
Ahead of the onslaught of mobile-related news in the next week for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Archos announced three new Android tablets of varying sizes.

The 7-inch 70 Oxygen, 8-inch 80 Oxygen, and 10.1-inch 101b Oxygen are all powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and come in an aluminum back casing. It doesn’t seem like there’s too much of a difference between the tablets, which will have 1080p IPS displays, with MediaTek quad-core processors, with speeds of 1.3GHz, and 2GB of RAM.

The tablets do differ on battery size with the 80 Oxygen containing a 4,500mAh battery, and the 101b having a 6,000mAh battery capacity. The 70 Oxygen’s battery hasn’t been listed. In fact, we don’t know much else about the newly announced tablets, and won’t until they’re officially demoed at Mobile World Congress early next week.

From the few pictures Archos has offered, we can see the tablets have front and rear cameras, and the tablets look pretty sleek, but we won’t be able to verify that until we get a hands-on demo of the devices at the show.

We also don’t know the price of the tablets, but they will be available for purchase in May.

The announcement comes almost a week after Archos announced a “high-end smartphone” with a price tag of $150 that will also be showcased at Mobile World Congress. The 50d Oxygen comes in at 5-inches and features a 1080p IPS display, and is powered by an octa-core MediaTek processor. It has 2GB of RAM, and will come with 16GB of internal storage, with the option to add an extra 32GB via the MicroSD card slot. The handset will be available in May, along with the tablets.
