Flagships always get all the public’s attention when it comes to important trade shows such as MWC 2018, but do not forget that several interesting cheap smartphones also get launched at these events. If you want to buy a new phone this year and you have a low budget, it is highly recommended for you to follow Mobile World Congress before making your purchase.
Archos is going to showcase three low-end devices sold at very affordable prices. Their names are Archos Core 55S, Core 57S, and Core 60S. The first, which is also the cheapest one, will launch with a price tag of just €99 ($122). It will sport a 5.5-inch display, a Spreadtrum SC9850 quad-core SoC, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. Its battery will have 2300 mAh capacity, while the cameras will have 8 and 2 MP resolutions, respectively.
Archos 57S will offer a 5.7-inch HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, but it will cost just $147. It has a slightly bigger battery (2500 mAh) and the same SoC as the previous model. At last, at MWC 2018 we will see Archos Core 60S, a 6-inch phablet with an HD+ resolution. This handset will get 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, and it will have the same Spreadtrum processor. Its price will be just $160. Each of these phones is expected to launch in Europe in the next couple of months.
