archos-smartphonesRemember the February “leak” starring the first ever Archos smartphones, due out this spring? Well, as it turns out, the three handhelds are in fact real and slated for releases by May, alongside a fourth Android phone.

The new report is not official, but it does come from a reputable and trusted source, so we’re going to take it for granted. That said, let’s start with the gadget that wasn’t mentioned in the February rumor – the one allegedly dubbed Titanium 4.

This is the definition of petite mid-ranger, having a dual-core 1.2 GHz Mediatek CPU beneath the hood and sporting a 4-inch 800 x 480 pixels resolution. It only runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is not so hot, but on the bright side it packs a surprisingly large, 2,200 mAh battery.

The Carbon 35 is a little lower on the food chain, with a 3.5-inch 480 x 320 pix res display, 1 GHz processor and 1,500 mAh battery, while the Titanium 52 is a giant, but not exactly a record-breaker in the hardware department.

In fact, the big guy comes packing the same dual-core 1.2 Ghz processor as the Titanium 4, an identical battery and even a 5.2-inch display with the same 800 x 480 resolution.

Though smaller than the Titanium 52, the Platinum 48 is set to be Archos’ flagship device. The 4.8-inch display boasts a 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution, there’s Android 4.1 out the box, while the CPU rocks four cores instead of just two.

Apparently, the Carbon 35, Titanium 4 and Titanium 52 are to be launched in Europe by the end of April for prices between €80 and €200, whereas the Platinum 48 will make its debut sometime in May for €240. Any takers?
