Acer is better known for such devices as PCs, notebooks or tablets, but its latest smartphone is bound to turn a few heads, and not only because of its size. The Liquid S2, which is a sequel to last year’s S1, comes with top-notch specs and several truly innovative features such as 4K Ultra HD recording and ring flash. The phone will be released at the end of October, however, we are still waiting for exact dates and pricing, which should be revealed soon by Acer and carrier partners.
