Acer has just announced a 4G capable smartphone, the Liquid Z410 with a 64-bit Mediatek chipset just ahead of the CES 2015, and the device is going to be showcased at the event. Acer has yet again picked the budget smartphone market for this launch, and the Z410 is priced at €129 (close to $155) and the device will be available first in Europe, the Middle East and Africa around the end of February.
The smartphone packs a 4.5-inch screen with qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels), with a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek MT6732 CPU, ARM Mali-T760 GPU and there is no mention about the RAM. While there is a 5-megapixel camera on the back, the 2-megapixel front-facing camera has a wide 80-degree lens for wide selfies.
The USP of Acer Z410 will be its 4G LTE (Cat. 4) connectivity. Just below the camera on the back, there is an AcerRAPID key that allows access to customizable actions with one touch. It enhances user experience and brings out quick actions to the user. Another gesture, Acer QuickTouch, depends on the one-finger gesture to draw shapes on locked screen to directly get some functions done.
For multimedia experience, Acer Liquid Z410 has the DTS Studio Sound speakers on the front. Some other Acer-limited features include AcerEXTEND and Acer QuickMode.
Accd. to the press release, the specs could vary based on the area of availability and right now, it is only Europe, Middle East and Africa where the Z410 will be available for ordering from February. Want to know how good this is? We’ll bring to you the hands-on very soon, as the company is showcasing it at the CES 2015 show floor. Stay tuned for the updates.
