Acer announces Liquid Zest Plus mid-range smartphone
When talking about notebooks and tablets, Acer is a big name that always offered competitive products. On the other hand, their smartphones never threatened the high-end area of the market, although budget-conscious users might find them quite appealing. Yesterday, Acer announced a new affordable smartphone that promises to offer a very generous battery and a main camera with no less than three autofocus methods.
Acer Liquid Zest Plus comes two months after the introduction of the Liquid Zest series, which took place at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. While the first Liquid Zest handset had a 5-inch display and an 8 MP main camera, Liquid Zest Plus comes with a 5.5-inch screen and its 13 MP main image snapper is what Acer calls a "tri-focus" camera. To be more precise, this camera uses three autofocus technologies - phase detection, laser, and contrast detection.
Expected to retail for less than $250 USD, Acer Liquid Zest Plus also features fast charging and will probably be available in white and black. Unfortunately, the detailed specs and its date of arrival are still unknown. We will get back to it as soon as we find out more, so stay tuned.
