Archos has unveiled a new Android tablet with a 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display — which make it about the same size and resolution as Apple’s iPad with Retina display. Under the hood the Archos tablet is very different from Apple’s, though.
The Archos 97 Titanium HD features a 1.6 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor, ARM Mali 400 graphics, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of built-in storage, plus a microSD card slot for extra storage.
It runs Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software, features a 5MP rear camera with auto-focus and a front-facing 2MP camera. The tablet measures 9.4″ x 7.2″ x 0.35″ and weighs 1.4 pounds.
The specs sound awfully familiar, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Archos contracted with one of the Chinese shops that makes the Chuwi V99 or Cube U9GT5 tablets. Based on context clues, I suspect that, like those tablets, the Archos 97 Titanium HD is powered by a Rockchip RK3066 processor.
There’s no word on the launch date or price for the Archos 97 Titanium HD.
