New Acer Liquid S2 and Iconia A3 with Android Jelly Bean announced
Today, just prior to IFA 2013, Taiwan’s Acer has officially revealed a new Android smartphone, as well as a new Android tablet.
The smartphone is the Acer Liquid S2, which comes only a few months after the Liquid S1 was announced.
Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Liquid S2 is presented as the first handset with 4K Ultra HD recording capability (that should mean 3840 x 2160 pixels). The rear camera responsible for this is a 13MP one that can also shoot full panorama 27MP photos.
The S2 has a 6 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display – so some will call it a phablet rather than a smartphone. Other features: LTE, NFC, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor (2.2 GHz), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 3,300 mAh battery. The new Liquid measures 166 x 86 x 8.99 mm. It should be available (at least in Europe) starting October. Pricing details haven’t been unveiled.
As for Acer’s new tablet, this is the affordable Iconia A3. Its features include Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 10.1 inch IPS display with 1280 x 800 pixels, Dolby Digital Plus sound, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 5MP rear camera, 16GB / 32GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
The Iconia A3 will debut in early October in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Its Wi-Fi version will cost €249, being the first to hit shelves. The 3G version will be released in early November, costing €299.
