Only a few weeks after the 50 Helium Plus and 55 Helium Plus were introduced, ARCHOS has another entry into the mobile arena in the form of the 50d Helium Android smartphone. Okay, so the French phone manufacturer just added a ‘d’ to the 50 Helium but this one boasts of a slimmer design and more power with 4G connectivity. This new ARCHOS phone looks elegant with the smooth edges and clean lines. It actually looks premium but don’t be fooled because this one is very affordable at only $129.

Phone comes with an intuitive interface that allows easy navigation, all thanks to Android 5.1 Lollipop. The dual cameras can capture stunning photos and selfies and the dual SIM support allows two mobile networks to run on the phone simultaneously.

The ARCHOS 50d Helium 4G’s design is nature-inspired. It’s 4G/LTE capability offers fast mobile Internet connection speed for faster web browsing, online gaming, quick access to cloud storage, and Full HD video streaming.
