All six Acer Liquid smartphones will incorporate a similar rounded design and will run either Windows 10 Mobile or Android 5.1 Lollipop. The manufacturer has already revealed some launch details on four of the models:

  • Acer Liquid Z630 (Android 5.1 Lollipop): 200 Euros, available September 2015

The M330, Z330, and M320, and Z320 are all visually identical and differ only in their pre-installed operating systems, Qualcomm SoC (Snapdragon 210 MSM8909 w/ LTE or MSM8209), and front-facing cameras (5 MP or 2 MP). Otherwise, these four models will have the following specifications:

  • 4.5-inch IPS display
  • 854 x 480 resolution
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB eMMC
  • 2000 mAh battery

The Z530 will have just 1 GB RAM and 8 GB eMMC while the larger model will have double these values. Battery capacities will be 2420 and 4000 mAh for the Z530 and Z630, respectively.

Acer has also announced the higher-end Liquid Z530S and Z630S with octa-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC, 3 GB RAM, and 32 GB eMMC.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
