Acer Liquid E1 gets unveiled with nice looks, midrange specs
The Liquid E1 is the latest midrange Android smartphone offering from Acer. The company’s been churning out such devices for a few years now, but none so far have been making any headlines in terms of sales. Maybe this will be the one to change everything.
Acer’s gotten better and better at smartphone design over the years, and this clearly shows in the E1. It’s a very nice looking phone, but it does come with specs that can surely make anyone yawn.
It has a 4.5-inch 540×960 touchscreen, a dual-core 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash, a front-facing camera too, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, HSPA, an FM radio, some kind of DTS surround sound, and a 1,760 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.
Its dimensions are 132×68.5×9.9 mm, and it weighs 130g. There’s no information yet regarding pricing or availability, nor do we know where it will be sold. That might prove to be quite important, as Acer hasn’t really shown a great distribution prowess in the mobile world.
And with such specs, the most important detail will of course be the price. If that’s low enough, it might convince a few people to purchase the Liquid E1.
