Acer announce two new phones prior to MWC

image
Earlier on in the week Acer teased us with an image from the rear of an unannounced phone. We covered that here but it seemed they were going to wait until MWC before they actually showed the world what it was. No, they’re not waiting, they’ve gone and announced the Acer Liquid E3 and the Liquid Z4.

The Liquid E range have always been mid range for Acer, with some features and design cues from the S range.

The E3 offers the following:

•  4.7 inch HD IPS screen encased in a sleek 8.9mm unibody design
•      Unique 2MP front camera with front LED flash for amazing selfies
•      “f1.8” 13MP rear camera with ultra-fast focus, “Bright Magic” and AcerRAPID™
•      Capture presentations with Acer SnapNote
•      New Liquid UI
•      AcerFloat™ apps for real time advanced multitasking

The E3 also offers Android 4.2.2, a Quad Core 1.2 GHz processor, 4 GB of internal user storage, 1 GB of memory, Wi-Fi, and integrated GPS.

The Z range has always been the entry level range often offering budget prices and sometimes dual SIM.

The Z4 offers the following :

•      Compact and beautiful 4-inch screen, ideal for browsing the internet, social networking, and taking pictures
•      Premium design available in two colours; Titanic Black and Essential White
•      New Liquid UI
•      AcerFloat™ apps for real time advanced multitasking
•      5MP camera with auto-focus and LED flash

The Z4 also offers Android 4.2.2, dual-core 1.3 GHz processor, 4 GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi, integrated GPS, and a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash.

Both have a range of software additions, with the Z4 having that ever so slightly weird, Windows Phone style launcher. Both devices are mainly about the prices though with the Z4 costing about €99 & the E3 costing about €199. Both are to be shown of at MWC so expect Dan and Leigh to cover these very soon.
