Let’s get to the nitty-gritty shall we? You’re gonna be seeing a stack of CES-related announcements this week as the big tech show kicks off in Las Vegas. This is the first of many, the Acer Liquid Z410. It’s got a 4.5″ 245 ppi screen, it’s 64-bit and it’s going to be available here in Europe from the end of February for a mere €129. That’s just £101.
Powered by a quad-core CPU it has a 5 megapixel rear shooter (autofocus and LED flash) and 2 megapixel 80 degree wide-angle front camera. The camera has a new UI with quick-settings to get you into the mode you need in an instant. These include “Dual Shot” for shots from the front and rear cameras at the same time, “Presentation Mode” for snapping documents and they’ve now added voice commands so you can just say “Cheese” to take a snap.
It’s not just about the cameras though, as the Z410 also has a speaker up front providing DTS Studio Sound. There’s also a battery providing 400 hours standby time and an”AcerRAPID” key for speedy access into customizable actions in one touch. This, with “Acer QuickTouch” for gesture control, means you should be able to get into the tasks and apps you need quickly.
Las Vegas, January 3rd, 2015 – Acer announces the Liquid Z410 smartphone, a small powerhouse: with LTE 4G connectivity, 64-bit superfast processors, excellent audio, great camera, and prolonged battery life ready to boom!
The Liquid Z410 will be on display at Pepcom’s Digital Experience! Event on Jan. 5th at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
Heroic Speed and Power
With the Liquid Z410, Acer makes speed and power available to all. Featuring an ultra-performant 64-bits quad-core processor, and supporting 4G LTE (Cat. 4) connectivity for fast browsing, streaming and downloading almost anywhere in the world, this smartphone enables fast task management and clear calls at all times. Thanks to its powerful Mali-760 graphic chip, the Liquid Z410 additionally promises high-quality visuals and a seamless graphic performance, securing a smooth user-interface experience. Because Acer knows a smartphone is your daily envoy, the Liquid Z410’s battery will last for up to 5.5 hours of talk-time, or 400 hours in standby. Positioned right under the camera and encircled by an elegant textile pattern, the AcerRAPID™ key allows users to access a rich set of customizable actions with one touch. Easily operated by either hand, AcerRAPID™ is designed to add speed, flexibility and personalization to the user experience. Furthermore, the Liquid Z410 comes with Acer QuickTouch enabling users to quickly control their phone with a simple one-finger gesture. Swiping a Z shape on the locked display launches the music player and swiping left or right commands previous and next songs, while a C shape opens the camera and a V shape enables dialer functions. The combination of AcerRAPID™ and QuickTouch empowers the Liquid Z410 to get things done faster than ever.
The 4.5-inch IPS qHD(1) display with 245 ppi definition ensures selfies taken with the 2MP 80° wide-angle front camera will appear crystal clear. The rear camera features a 5 MP Autofocus snapper and LED Flash. It is one of the major points Acer focused when developing the Liquid Z410: boasting a brand-new user interface, it enables quick settings and different modes for taking pictures. Furthermore, it comes with several pre-installed modes that make capturing memories easier than ever: Presentation mode optimizes note-taking by converting pictures of a sheet of paper or a screen into .jpg, .pdf or .ppt files; Dual Shot lets users make collages of simultaneous shots or videos from the front and rear cameras for picture-in-picture and video-in-video. Finally, the Liquid Z410’s camera is voice commanded, so that users can focus on their subjects rather than logistics: simply say “Cheese” for a photograph to be taken, or “Selfie” to switch to the front camera and shoot after a three-second countdown! To complete the multimedia experience, the Liquid Z410 also offers front-facing speaker with DTS Studio Sound™, which secures astonishing sound and spacious wide-effect. DTS Studio Sound™ brings professional cinematic experiences to the Liquid Z410, with bigger sound-field, higher vocal clarity and lifelike, natural details.
Equally beautiful in the inside
Beyond the exclusive camera features, the Liquid Z410 is compatible with the best technology enhancements brought by Acer. AcerEXTEND (2) will enable users to take full control of their smartphones via cable or wirelessly using their Windows-based PC, typing with their keyboard, using drag and drop and rich sharing – taking the multitasking experience to the next level. Acer QuickMode offers different user needs: kids getting their hands on their first smartphone or elders in need for a big and bright screen with simple text on it.
The Acer Liquid Z410 will be available in EMEA from end of February at a starting price of €129.
