Acer is a pretty well known brand when it comes to computers and laptops, but it hasn’t made quite a name in the smartphone market even though it has some pretty decent phones in its catalogue. IFA has already begun, so there are going to be lots of technology news this week. This one is for the just announced Acer Liquid S2.
The main highlight of this phone is its video recording capability that records videos at 4K UHD (Ultra HD) resolution (3840 x 2160) at high frame rate. It can also record videos in 1080p resolution at 60fps, which is pretty huge. There’s even slow motion video recording in this thing. All this is the courtesy of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC inside the 6-inch monster. This chipset also powers the Sony Xperia ZU. The specifications of the Acer Liquid S2 are:
Now that Android 4.4 KitKat is already announced (but not yet released), expecting devices to run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean wouldn’t make any difference, because most of the OEMs will skip the 4.3 Jelly Bean update and go straight for Android 4.4 KitKat.
Anyways, this device is a Snapdragon 800 monster and it has the privilege of being almost quick release, because not many OEMs have devices running on this chipset. The device will be available late October in Europe, but there’s no info on when the device will launch globally or what it’s price is going to be in Europe or in the international market either. We’ll update you with those details as soon as we get them, so stay tuned.
