So far at IFA this year we’ve brought you up-close looks at new phones from the likes of Samsung and Sony, as well as HTC, and even Microsoft – all big names in the mobile space. But this show isn’t just about checking out the new models from the usual suspects, and we’ve also got a whole bunch of entries from some of the lesser-appreciated firms contributing to the smartphone landscape. Last week we shared with you news of a Windows tablet launch from Acer, and today we check out one of the company’s recent smartphones, the Liquid Jade.
First announced all the way back at the end of May, the Liquid Jade is one handset that’s been a long time coming. The mid-ranger tips the scales at a scant 110 grams while measuring only 7.5mm thick, making this slim little phone eminently portable. A MediaTek SoC powers the Liquid Jade, and while only 8GB internal storage isn’t much space for all your data, microSD expansion is present to help you out.
Sure, the phone’s got a bit of a camera bump, and that glossy surface looks like a fingerprint magnet if we’ve ever seen one, but the phone’s still pretty sleek, without a big, objectionable bezel. Watch on to get our full thoughts from our initial unboxing run-in with the Liquid Jade.
