Acer introduces pair of new 64-bit Android phones

CES press day isn’t until tomorrow, but Acer’s joining a handful of other manufacturers in getting an early start to its launches. This weekend, it’s revealed a whole bunch of new electronics, and among them we find a pair of new smartphones, hitting stores in EMEA regions in just a few weeks.

First up we’ve got the Liquid Jade S, a five-inch phone with a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6752M SoC, 13-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front-facer, and 7.78mm-thick body. The handset will be available in both single-SIM and hybrid-dual nano/microSD configurations, and though it will ship running Android 4.4, Lollipop is promised for sometime later this year. Sales will start later this month, with the Jade S going for just about 300 EUR.

Then there’s the Liquid Z410 (pictured above), a slightly more compact 4.5-inch quarter HD model. Based on the specs Acer’s provided, it sounds like were looking at the same MediaTek chip powering this guy, too. There’s a 5MP main camera, as well as a front-facer with a wide-angle lens perfect for group shots. A pair of front-facing speaker and support for DTS Studio Sound promise to give the phone some impressive audio output capabilities. This one should start selling by the end of February, with a price tag of around 130 EUR.
