Acer announces Liquid X1 octa-core LTE smartphone

Acer has just announced what could be one of the first LTE octa-core smartphone yet — the Acer Liquid X1. The 5.7-inch phablet uses Mediatek’s octa-core chip and got it running with Kitkat out of the box.

Mediatek already announced its LTE modem back in January, the MT6290, so it’s likely that this is the one that came with the Liquid X1’s MT6592 chip.
