The Acer Liquid S2 was announced officially today by the Taiwanese company and it will be presented at IFA 2013. This Android running smartphone stands out from the crowd with its 4k video recording capability, being the first device of this kind.
The 4K means that the Liquid S2 is capable of recording video clips in a massive 3,840 pixels x 2,160 pixels resolution, almost twice the resolution of 1080p HD.
Along with this huge resolution, the Acer Liquid S2 sports a massive 6 inches wide full HD IPS touch screen and runs on the state of the art Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 system on chip.
The monstrous 6” screen has a native resolution of 1920×1080 pixels,the camera is a 13 Megapixels shooter with a LED flash, ans the processor is a quad core unit clocked at 2.2 GHz; the phone comes with 2 GB of RAM and only 16 GB of internal memory (this is a little disappointing, you must keep in mind that those 4k video clips are huge in size, almost 25 times bigger than the current HD ones). The battery has a capacity of 3300 mAh and the smart phone is 4G LTE compatible. All these are the trademarks of a high end device.
But what makes the Liquid S2 different from the others is the 4K capability of its video camera, which is claimed to be the first ever on a smart phone. Besides 4k, the phone is capable of recording full HD clips at 60 frames per second and also to capture 27 megapixel panoramas.
In terms of software, Asus comes loaded with Android 4.2.2 out of the box and it’s augmented with its in house made user interface. Among its enhancements and apps, I must mention Acer Float UI,Acer Print and Acer Data Manager.
The Acer Liquid S2 will be available in two colors, black and red, at the end of October. The price is not known yet.
