Acer’s one of many mobile manufacturers taking the stage on MWC 2015 day 0, and the company brought with it a variety of goodies to show off.
Acer today revealed three new Android phones — all of which are running Android 5.0 — as well as a Windows Phone 8.1 device and a new wearable. There’s a lot to cover here, so let’s break it down an an easy-to-digest bulleted list:
- Acer Liquid Jade Z: 5-inch HD IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3, MediaTek 64-bit quad-core prcessor, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, Bright Magic Selfie for quality self-shots, and a body that measures 7.9mm thick.
- Acer Liquid Z520: 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of storage, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, and 1GB of RAM.
- Acer Liquid Z220: 4-inch 800x480 display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, 8GB of storage, and 1GB of RAM.
- Acer Liquid Leap+: Wearable device with a 1-inch OLED touchscreen, water resistance, fitness tracking for things like steps taken and calories burned, smartphone notifications, and support for Android, Windows, and iOS.
- Acer Liquid M220: 4-inch 800x480 display, 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, microSD slot, 512MB of RAM, 1300mAh battery, upgradeable to Windows 10.
Acer looks like it’s going after both the high-end and entry-level markets with its new hardware, and the good news is that no matter which you choose, you’ll get the latest software available on that platform. And if a wearable is what you’re after, the Liquid Leap+ supports three different mobile platforms, meaning that most folks should be able to pair it with their current smartphone without a hitch.
