Acer Liquid X1 Phablet with 5.7-Inch Display and Octa-Core CPU Goes Official

Acer has just unveiled its new flagship Android smartphone, the Liquid X1, during Computex 2014 trade fair. The device has been confirmed to arrive on the market in Q3 2014 for a price that will be disclosed closer to launch.

Unlike the previous mid-range smartphones that we reported on earlier today, Liquid E600 and E700, the X1 is aimed at the high-end segment of the market. Although the price of the smartphone has yet to be revealed, Acer Liquid X1 will surely be priced higher than the average. According to the official press release, the handset will be equipped with a powerful true octa-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.7GHz, which is complemented by a quad-core graphics processing unit. According to Acer, the “Liquid X1 comes with a number of distinct features that make it much easier to control and operate. Among them is Acer Zoom Fit, which adjusts the user interface to just 4-inches when operating the device with one hand is required.” Another selling point of the device is the huge 5.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720p) resolution. But this is not all, as the phablet has been confirmed to boast an impressive 13-megapixel main camera on the back, which features autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording.

The rear-facing camera offers f/1.8 aperture and 0.3 second ultra-fast focus capability, along with some innovative features such as Free Focus, which allows users to capture pictures without having to worry about focusing. With Motion Tracking, users will be able to capture moving objects without having to fear that their pictures will be blurred. Furthermore, Acer confirmed its high-end phablet “also comes built with the AcerRAPID design on the back which allows users to quickly launch the camera, pick up phone calls or their favorite apps with the touch of a finger. “With AcerFLOAT user interface, app windows can stay open, so users can multitask without having to back out of one app to work on another. The press of the multi-task key brings up the Float Apps where opened apps on a translucent screen float over the function being used.”

It is also worth mentioning that Acer’s smartphone packs 2GB of RAM, a secondary 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of internal memory, microSD card slot for memory expansion and a high-capacity 2700 mAh battery. Acer also announced the Liquid X1 would ship with Android 4.4 KitKat operating system out of the box when released next quarter.
