Intended primarily for hikers, riders and outdoor workers, it offers a 10.1-inch IPS HD screen capable of delivering a 1280×800 pixels resolution, with wide viewing angles.

It is powered by a 64 bit Mediatek quad-core processor at 1.3 GHz, along with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, in order to run multiple apps and videos at the same time. Also on board are two cameras (2MP at the front and 5MP at the back), a built-in GPS and USB Type-C / micro HDMI slots.

ARCHOS, which was the first company to introduce a Google Android tablet in 2009, has designed the new tablet in a rugged casing, which can survive drops (up to 1 metre), dust and water splashes, in order to meet the IP54 standard specifications.

Due to be unveiled next week at MWC 2017, the ARCHOS 101 Saphir will be available in June for around £130.00.

The ARCHOS 101 Saphir will be exhibited on ARCHOS’s booth at MWC 2017 (Hall 6, Booth #B60).
