Both the Helium devices will use the same quad-core Qualcomm 1.4GHz processor with Adreno 305 graphics, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Micro USB 2.0 connectivity. The smaller 45 Helium will offer 4GB of storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, a front-facing VGA camera, and a 1,700mAh battery. With 8GB of storage, the 50 Helium has a larger 2,000mAh battery, a more impressive 8-megapixel rear camera, also with autofocus and LED flash, and a 2-megapixel front-facing counterpart. Both will use Android 4.3, with Archos advising that they will both be upgradeable to Android KitKat in the future. <br />

Archos has priced the 45 Helium and 50 Helium at $200 and $250 respectively, but has yet to reveal a release date.
