Acer, better known for its PCs and laptops, is getting ready to boost its smartphone presence. Rumors suggest that Acer will launch its Android-powered Liquid Gallant Solo smartphone at the IFA event in Berlin later this month.
With modest features on offer, the Liquid Gallant Solo can be classified as an entry-level smartphone, appealing to first time smartphone buyers.
The smartphone will be powered by a single core 1GHz MediaTek MT6575 processor with 1GB of RAM. It will sport a 4.3-inch HD LCD display screen with a 960x540 resolution and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash. The smartphone will be powered by a 1,500mAh removable battery. It will have 4GB on-board storage with the option to expand the memory to 32GB using a microSD card.
"In terms of styling it seems to be taking cues from Samsung and HTC with a rounded-off rectangular shape and gently curving corners. It's also a buttonless handset so it'll be making use of Android 4.0's built-in touch controls," reports KnowYourMobile.
The handset is not officially launched but rumors suggest that it will debut at the IFA event in Berlin later this month. The device was unveiled on Acer's Web site with an official user guide.
With other smartphone giants on track to launch their smartphones soon, will Acer get a chance to attract the smartphones buyers with its new gadget?
