New Acer and Samsung handsets incoming – images leaked online

Acer’s next Android smartphone has already been revealed after details and pictures of the kit were leaked online.

The phone, currently dubbed ‘Liquid Metal’ follows in the footsteps of the preceding ‘Liquid E’ and bears striking resemblances in terms of design.

The good news is that it runs on the latest version of Android, Froyo, and not some outdated version with the promise of a bonked update sometime in the distant future.

It also sports a number of top-end features that include a fairly sizable 3.6-inch TFT panel, Bluetooth 3.0, Dolby Mobile support, and of course, a custom UI called the Acer Shell 4.0.

The only downside is that the CPU clocks in at 800Mhz, which is slower than most Android kit which pack 1GHz processors these days. But all round, the phone looks to be another solid addition to the Android lineup.

Also leaked recently were shots of a handset from Samsung, this time running the upcoming Windows Phone 7. The kit is currently known as the i8700 and could be the European counterpart to the i917 Cetus, which has been confirmed as a US carrier exclusive.

Unfortunately, the only bit of information available on the handset so far is that it boasts 8GB of internal memory and a five-megapixel camera, in accordance to requirements set by Microsoft for all handsets carrying the Windows Phone 7 OS.

Expect to find out more about the handset in Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 launch event on October 11th.
