Acer announced several new devices in its smartphone line, which will be showcased at Mobile World Congress next week.
The company said that “target users range from first-time smartphone buyers looking for intuitive simplicity, to tech-savvy customers in need of feature-rich multimedia and communication experiences”.
At the high-end is Liquid E1, which has a 4.5-inch qHD display, dual-core processor, and runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). It features “an impressive dual-speaker system and DTS Sound for enhanced audio with volume maximisation and stereo sound”, and will be available with dual SIM support.
Targeting entry-level users is Liquid Z2, an Android-powered device which “learns users’ habits and has a very intuitive interface with large icons”. It also offers dual SIM support, along with a “versatile optional 3 megapixel or 5 megapixel camera”, and SRS Sound which delivers “excellent mobile audio with greater clarity and deeper bass”.
Also unveiled was Liquid C1, which Acer said is “designed for fast-paced lifestyles”. The device is powered by an Intel Atom processor, and has a 4.3-inch qHD display with 400MHz graphics engine.
The devices support Acer’s AcerCloud service, which the vendor describes as “a file sharing and media management solution that lets users easily retrieve, enjoy and share their multimedia and data files using a variety of computing devices”. It works across-platform, and is free on new Acer devices.
The new smartphones will be available imminently.
