Acer announces three new Android smartphones


IFA 2016 kicks off in Germany in a couple of days, but Acer has gone ahead and announced not just one, but three new Android-based smartphones today.

Those new handsets are the Iconia Talk S, shown above, and Liquid Z6 and Liquid Z6 Plus. The big phone is the Iconia Talk S, which features a 7-inch 720p HD display. There is a quad-core processor under the hood, and a 13-megapixel camera around the back of the device. It boasts a pair of SIM slots, has 4G LTE connectivity, and it’s running Android 6.0 Marshmallow under the hood. It will cost €169, or about $188, and it will ship in Europe, and the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) this September.

As for the other two, here’s how they break down:

  • Liquid Z6 (pictured lower left) : 5-inch 1080p HD display, MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera, 8GB of built-in storage, 1GB of RAM, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It launches in November in EMEA for €119 ($132).
  • Liquid Z6 Plus (pictured lower right): 5.5-inch 1080p HD display, MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor, 13MP camera on the back and 5MP front-facing camera, 32GB of built-in storage, 3GB of RAM, 4080mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It launches this December in EMEA for €249 ($277).
