Following its announcement of the Diamond S, 50e Helium, 50 Cesium and Diamond Tab last week, ARCHOS has today unveiled yet another smartphone in its rapidly-growing IFA 2015 lineup of devices, the Diamond Plus.

In terms of specifications, the Plus packs a 5-inch Full HD display, a 1.5GHz MediaTek octa-core 64-bit SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable memory, a 16MP rear-facing cameraScreen Shot 2015-09-02 at 09.30.43, an 8MP front-facing shooter and a 2,850mAh battery.

The handset will run the latest build of Lollipop straight out of the box. However, like previous smartphones manufactured by the French company, it won’t come with a custom user interface on board, thereby giving users the opportunity to enjoy pure Android.

With regards to pricing and availability, the Diamond Plus will retail for $275 in the United States, £179 in the United Kingdom and Rs. 18,299 in India when it launches in these regions mid-November.

If you’re attending IFA and would like to see a demonstration of this device, it will be on ARCHOS’ stand at the conference starting Friday, September 4.
