Acer has pulled the wrappers off a new top–end smartphone, kicking off the first round of handset unveilings at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The new Liquid Jade S comes with some seriously impressive specs. Not least a 64–bit octa–core processor, which the company claims makes it 2.5 times snappier than your average quad–core phone.
There’s a 13-megapixel snapper round the back and a battery that Acer reckons will stay on standby for a whacking 400 hours.
That should mean this phone won’t need juicing up every evening.
Strangely, Acer has opted to bundle the phone with Android 4.4, rather than the latest 5.0 Lollipop version.
An update is expected later in the year, although no specific date has been given. The phone is set to sell for €299 SIM–free.
Acer also revealed a new budget effort, the Z410.
Due to go on sale in February for €129, it comes with a 4.5–inch screen, a five-megapixel camera and a quad-core processor.
