Acer officially introduced its Acer Liquid S2 that is the first phone of the world able to capture 4K video, the next generation of ultra-high-definition video. It will be available in Europe by the end of October, while the price has yet to be revealed.
The Liquid S2 is the successor of Liquid S1 announced at last Computex, but it’s much more ambitious than its predecessor. First, there’s a rear camera with 13-megapixel sensor and LED flash and a 2-megapixel front camera capable to capture video at 1080p. In addition to various software options, the smartphone is designed to get the perfect shot by controlling the focus, exposure and other settings, so the Liquid S2 is an ideal compromise for those who revel in the field of videos.
The feature of recording 4K is the one that characterizes the new Liquid, but also the hardware sector as a whole can’t be underestimated. In fact, Liquid S2 comes equipped with a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 3300 mAh battery, a 6-inch IPS screen in high resolution, 16GB of memory expandable up to 128GB using microSD cards and 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The device runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out-of-box besides there are various sensors such as ambient light, accelerometer, proximity sensor, gyroscope and a digital compass.
The phone is slim measuring 8.99 mm and has two stereo speakers with Dolby Digital Plus, which offer “an extraordinary sound power,” according to Acer. Finally, the Liquid S2 is a resistant smartphone to scratches and bumps thanks to the Gorilla Glass 3.0 glass and would be available in black and red color.
