Archos 50 and 53 TitaniumArchos has announced four new Android smarphones, all of which will be on sale in the UK soon, and come with decent mid-range specs at an affordable price. Sounds good, right? It’s is, so here’s what you need to know about Archos’ new hardware. All four share many of the same specifications, separated by their screen size.

Archos 45 Titanium: The 4.5-inch screen here has an 854 x 480 pixel resolution, and the battery again gets a little smaller, reaching 1680mAh here. Again, the specs are identical to the 53 Titanium.

Archos 40 Titanium: The smallest of the four new phones, the 4-inch screen has an 800 x 480 pixel resolution, and a 1500mAh battery. Otherwise, the specs are the same as above.
