Two days ahead of the IFA 2016 official opening, Acer took today the Berlin’s stage and introduced two new smartphones, the Liquid Z6 and Z6 Plus. The first one is an entry-level device, while the latter fits more mid-tier niche. Both handsets will provide its potential users with decent specs to price ratio and Android Marshmallow experience out of box.
Two days ago we’re reported on a Microsoft BOGO deal on its recent flagship, the Lumia XL. Today, the company adds another Windows 10-based phone to its list of offerings. Priced at $99 the Acer Liquid M330 is an Microsoft’s offer dedicated to customers on extremely tight budget who want to experience the Redmond’s latest OS on the cheap.
Smartphones perform so many tasks on daily basis that there’s no wonder that they require far more power to get you through the day than basic phones. At the same time, the pressure to make smartphones look attractive puts some limitations on battery size. As a result, the majority of models launched these days come with batteries of around 3,000 mAh which is not much considering how intensively some devices are used. However, every once in a while one of the manufacturers decides to treat users to a smartphone equipped with a beast of a battery, as Acer just did. Earlier today at an event in New York City the company announced Liquid Zest Plus – a new, mid-tier phone powered by a whopping 5,000 mAh battery.
Taking the center stage of the second day of the MWC 2016 Acer announced today a new member of the company’s Liquid Jade series. Being a successor of the released in 2014 Liquid Jade and Liquid Jade S, the Liquid Jade 2 comes with a 1TB of hybrid storage and a package of decent hardware including a stunning 21MP camera senor. In case you wondering what exactly hides behind the term “hybrid storage”, here’s an explanation.
Kids are back to school, days are shorter, nights are longer, summer is slowly ending. For most folks the turn of seasons is not the happiest time. However, there is one thing we all love about this time of the year – the annual trade show IFA in Berlin where manufacturers from all around the world present the devices they have been working on for the past few months. Acer certainly wasn’t resting on laurels. The company went wild and unveiled a whole bunch on new Android and Windows smartphones this week.
Acer unveils two new unlocked phones for the US market with 4G LTE connectivity and 64-bit processing power
Acer has recently announced two new affordable Android smartphones – the Liquid Jade Z and Liquid Z410. Oriented on the US market, both smartphones come equipped with support for 4G connectivity and 64-bit processing power guarantying smooth apps performance, improved browsing and steaming. Both phones are unlocked and compatible with any GSM carrier such as AT&T or T-Mobile. In case you looking for a low cost handset with a bit more than decent specs, you may like to take a look at the Acer new offerings.
So far, Acer smartphones are out of reach of the US customers. But everything suggests that the company is just about to change it policy with announcement on a new phablet – Acer Liquid X2. The device is scheduled to hit the US market as soon as May. Sporting a massive battery and three SIM card slots, the Liquid X2 appears to be a perfect companion of every globetrotter.
When you hear the name Acer, the first thing that comes to mind are probably the likes of PCs and laptops. However, similar to other companies that make electronic equipment, a while ago the Taiwanese manufacturer decided to try its hand at smartphones. It looks like is wasn’t just a fling and here’s the proof. This week at WMC, Acer unveiled two new Liquid Z Android phones alongside the Liquid Jade Z and Windows Liquid M220.
The great countdown to the this year’s CES has just begun and there are more and more mobile manufacturers that can’t wait until the great event to present their new devices. Today, Acer joined the club of impatient phone makers unveiling the Liquid Z410. With the price tag rating at something round $155, this new decent, entry-level, LTE-capable smartphone powered by a 64-bit processor appears to be an affordable offer that won’t break the bank. The device is scheduled to hit the market this February.
Remember the Acer’s Aspire Switch 10 tablet, the convertible device that some hailed a true jack-of-all trades, others didn’t hide their admiration for it? Now the tablet is being overlapped in terms of size by its sibling successor, the Aspire 12-inch Aspire Switch 12 that beyond standard modes for hybrid devices goes with an additional fifth option – desktop mode. So, if you don’t mind the combination of a small screen and keyboard, the upcoming Switch gives you the opportunity to get a all-in-one device.
In addition to the affordable Iconia One 7 and Iconia Tab 7, Acer also announced today the Aspire Switch 10. The device is a Windows laptop-tablet hybrid with detachable display and appears to be Acer’s response to Lenovo’s Yoga lineup. You can expect that the tablet to go on sale in late May for a quite reasonable price of $379.99 for the whole package that include the tablet display and the dock keyboard.
High-end and advanced tablets are in most cases aimed at very specific groups of users, for example professionals, business, gamers or budget oriented customers. Budget tablets are a whole different story, though. Since the demand for such devices seems to maintain at a steady and rather high level, especially in emerging markets, it looks like there is always a room for another affordable slate. To prove the theory true, Acer has released the Tab 7, which is offered by Chinese retailer JD at just CNY 599, which is an equivalent of $100 or €73. For now the tablet is available only in China; however, it may be launched in other markets too.
Acer has announced a new smartphone that is targeting budget-conscious customers. Users who cannot afford to spend lots of money on high-end phablet but anyway would like to enjoy big screen and some neat features might find all they are looking for in the Acer Liquid Z5. The phone will be released in mid-January with a €169 price tag, that is about $231, primarily in Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Ukraine, the Netherlands and the UK. At the moment it is unclear whether the Acer Liquid Z5 will be available also in the US.
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.
