TAIWANESE HARWARE MAKER Acer added another smartphone to its Android lineup on Thursday, the Acer Liquid E1.
Unveiled in China, the Liquid E1 is a midrange phone that Acer hopes will help it finally see some success in the smartphone market.
The Acer Liquid E1 features a 4.5in 960x540 IPS touchscreen display, a 1GHz dual-core processor and Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system. There's no word on an update to Android 4.2 yet.
These mediocre specifications continue throughout the rest of the handset, as the Acer Liquid E1 also features a 5Mp rear-facing camera with HD 720p video, a VGA video calling camera, 4GB of internal storage with microSD expansion and a 1,760mAh battery. The phone features a rounded casing and measures 132x68.5x9.9mm.
The Acer Liquid E1 will make its debut in China, although there's no word on a release date or pricing yet. However, Acer told The INQUIRER that the phone will also see a European release, with more details to be announced at MWC next month. µ
