Acer Liquid Goes Live With Android 1.6 And 768 MHz Snapdragon CPU

By 06:21 Fri, 09 Jul 2021 Comments

Today Acer officially announced the Android-running Liquid full touchclassy screen handset. Rumors about the handset have been swarming online for several months but it's only now that it gets a proper announcement and we can safely say it's the most powerful Android handset to date (if we don't count the rumored XPERIA X3, of course).

Strangely enough Acer didn't show any photo of the device itself but as far as the specs go, there's no stopping it from becoming one of the hottest names of the season.

Update: Nearly 24 hours later we have the official Acer Liquid specs and some nice pics of the device.

Acer Liquid packs a 768 MHz elegant Qualcomm 8250 Snapdragon CPU. The handset will run on Android Operating System (OS) ver. 1.6 (codenamed Donut) and will have an Acer home brew UI preinstalled.

The Liquid will pack the first 3.5" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display in the Android world. It will utilize the capacitive technology as its siblings but the size and resolution advantage turn it into a real winner - at least on paper.

The other highlight features of the Acer Liquid include quad-band Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) support, HSPDA 7.2Mbps, HSUPA, Wi-Fi, and GPS. Despite not being mentioned in the press release, we can also expect a 5 MegaPixel (MP) camera, stereo Frequency Modulation (FM) radio, microSD card slot as well as Bluetooth and Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectivity.

While the price remains a mystery, we have some details on the availability. The Liquid is expected to heat for the stores by the discontinue of November or the beginning of December - correct on time for the Christmas shopping.
