Along with the X1, Acer Philippines has also launched the Liquid Jade, a 5-inch Android smartphone that was first seen during year’s Computex.
Acer Liquid Jade specs:
5-inch IPS ‘Zero Air Gap’ display @ 1280 x 720 resolution
Corning Gorilla Glass 3
1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core processor
8GB storage (expandable up to 32GB via microSD)
13MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, 0.3-second autofocus
1080p video recording
2MP front camera
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0
140.5 x 69 x 7.5mm
Android 4.4 KitKat
Looking at its specs sheet, the newly launched Acer Liquid Jade seem like an able contender in the midrange segment, that is if you discount the fact that it actually cost almost fifteen grand.
At that price point, it’ll be difficult for Acer’s new 5-inch smartphone to go toe-to-toe with cheaper, and sometime more powerful, smartphones in the local scene.
