"Our new Titanium smartphones make daily life easy by providing everything you need wrapped up in a powerful, feature rich phone package with a price that is hard to beat," says Loic Poirier, CEO of Archos. "Thanks to our new partnership with MediaTek and their support, we are able to offer a range of unlocked phones at affordable prices without losing key features."

The model number hints at the screen size of each smartphone, so they range between 4 in and 5.3 in. The highest resolution available is 960x540 qHD which is found on the 50 model.

All four Titanium smartphones comes with dual-SIM, 4 GB of storage, a 5 Mp rear camera, microSD card slot and a dual-core processor. Each comes pre-loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and standard features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

Other than screen size, it is the battery capacity, thickness and weigh which varies between models.
We're waiting for UK release dates but you can check out the full specifications below.
