The Acer is launching a low-cost Android smartphone called Acer Liquid Z5 in Acer’s home market Taiwan and across several European countries.
The handset went official at the beginning of this month. It flaunts a 5″ FWVGA (480 x 854) display, is powered by a dual-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 MediaTek MT6572 processor and Mali-400 GPU. The device features a 512 MB of RAM and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS.
It features a simple user interface mode, which is for smartphone newcomers and comes along with a basic grid of apps and options to play with. The UI uses a tiled design reminiscent of Windows Phone quite a bit.
The device costs €170 in Taiwan approx Rs. 6,990 on Chunghwa Telecom and is available today. It’s also expected to hit the UK and Netherlands market and is already available at Amazon in Germany, Italy and France. The Liquid Z5 is available in single and dual-SIM with dual stand-by flavors as is the norm for Acer handsets. However, looking at these specifications of Liquid Z5 it is more expensive handset than it should be.
