Acer V360 seems to be the company’s first Android Jelly Bean Smartphone
Acer has unveiled only a few Android smartphones this year, and all of them are running 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (even the high-end CloudMobile S500). So in case you’re wondering of the Taiwanese company has any Jelly Bean handsets that should be released soon – well, it looks like it does.
Meet the Acer V360, pictured below. Yes, the V360 does run Android Jelly Bean (version 4.1, to be exact). Other than that, its features reportedly include: a 4.5 inch qHD (960 x 540) display, 3G, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, and a dual-core 1GHz processor of unknown provenience. The device weighs 140 grams, and measures 132.0 x 68.5 x 9.9 mm.
According to Blog of Mobile (site in Japanese), the V360 should be available in two colors: black and white. We don’t know when Acer will launch the handset, and neither in what markets (although China can certainly be among them). The device will probably cost around $300 unlocked.
While it may be its first Jelly Bean smartphone, the V360 is not Acer’s first Jelly Bean device. Instead, the Iconia A110 7 inch tablet (launched in October for only $230) is.
