Archos is set to add a new 9.7-inch slate called the 97 Xenon to its series of mid-range tablets. According to Liliputing, the Archos 97 Xenon is about to be a part of the company’s Elements line of products which also includes the Archos 9.7 Carbon launched this summer.
The Archos 97 Xenon features a 9.7-inch IPS display that offers a 5-point multi-touch support along with a resolution of 1024 x 768p. The tablet runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and comes powered by a 1.4GHz processor paired up with 512MB of RAM. It offers 4GB of internal storage which is expandable up-to 32GB via a microSDHC card slot.
Other features include a pair of front and rear cameras, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G along with an integrated mic and speakers. However, not all models are expected to be shipped with 3G support.
Physically, the Archos 97 Xenon weighs around 1.4 pounds and measures 0.45-inch in depth, while its battery promises up-to 8 hours of video playback.
No details are available regarding the pricing and availability as of yet, but we should expect the price to be less than the 9.7-inch Carbon, which offers about double the memory of the 97 Xenon, and the former’s flash storage is about four times than that of the latter.
