Archos has announced two new devices that the company will be showing off at CES this year, and both devices offer a ton of value for the price. Archos is weighing heavily on the LTE aspect of its new phone and tablet duo, which seems to be a trend for budget phones this year.

First up is the Archos Diamond, an incredibly affordable smartphone at a very low price. The Diamond features an octa-core CPU, 16 GB of internal storage with 2 GB of RAM, plus a full HD 5-inch display. The smartphone features 4G LTE radios, so the network won’t be the bottleneck here. Archos plans on releasing the Diamond with a price tag below $200.

The second device announced is the 80b Helium 4G tablet. The company didn’t specify much in the way of specs, but did clarify that it would be a sub-$150 tab with a 1.5 GHz processor. They’ll likely reveal a little more about it at CES in a few days.

In addition to these two new devices, Archos announced that they will be refreshing some of their other models of smartphones and tablets to include 4G LTE radios. Definitely a step in the right direction in the extremely competitive budget market.
