Acer Liquid S1 with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is the company’s first phablet
Acer recently said that it would introduce six or seven Android handsets this year, and the new Liquid S1 is one of them. Officially announced today, the Liquid S1 is, in fact, a phablet – even the company calls it that.
Sporting a 5.7 inch HD (1280 x 720) display, the Acer Liquid S1 runs Android 4.2 with Acer’s own Float UI – which doesn’t significantly change the stock Android experience. The device further features 3G, Wi-Fi, DTS Studio Sound, 8MP BSI rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589T processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and “a day’s worth of battery power.”
Depending on market, the Acer Liquid S1 will have dual SIM support.
Prices for the Liquid S1 will start at €349. Acer says the device will be first available in France, the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Russia and Ukraine, followed by Italy and Spain. These countries should get the S1 in the third quarter of the year. At the moment, there is no word if the new Liquid will make it to North America.
All in all, the S1 seems to be a viable choice for customers in need of a large Android handset that isn’t too expensive.
