For a company who’s used to sitting in the shadows of others when it comes to smartphones, Acer seems to have suddenly and very abruptly upped its ante. Not that anyone’s complaining. Anyway, it’s time for all of you to meet the Liquid S2, one of the world’s first ever handhelds (the absolute first maybe) capable of recording and playing back videos at 4K resolution.
Not impressed with that “gimmick?” Then let’s see how you like these apples: a 6-inch Full HD IPS panel (covered in Gorilla Glass 3 coating) and quad-core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor.
I think we can safely say, and with no irony, we have a badass on our hands. Especially that every bit and piece of its list of features rises to the occasion, including the rear snapper’s 13 MP sensor, 2 GB of RAM, 3,300 mAh battery, pre-loaded Android 4.2.2, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC connectivity.
On top of it all, the Liquid S2 is quite the looker, measuring just 9 mm in thickness. Expected to be showcased and detailed at IFA in Berlin towards the end of the week, the 6-incher will be up on European and Asian store shelves come late October for a yet to be revealed price tag.
Come on, Acer, price this baby accordingly, unleash it in America as well and I guarantee you’ll move on up to the next “level”. Who’s with me?
