Acer has just announced the Liquid Jade S that brings additional speed and performance into the Liquid Jade smartphone series. Akin to the original Liquid Jade, the Liquid Jade S was created to be an elegant but powerful smartphone.
It comes with 4G LTE connectivity and the latest 64-bit Mediatek MT6752M octa-core processor with Mali T760 graphics chip, which makes it up to 2.5 times faster than traditional quadcore-powered smartphones currently on the market. Launching on Android 4.4 Jelly Bean, it is Android 5.0 Lollipop ready when available later in 2015.
On the camera front, the Liquid Jade S sports a 13MP rear camera with F1.8 aperture, it can produce flawless pictures in any environment, even when the light is scarce. A front camera of 5 megapixels is also on board, to empower users to shoot their best selfie.
The Liquid Jade S comes with optional hybrid microSD/dual nano-SIM. Users have the flexibility to swap the microSD card for a second nano-SIM to stay connected to two worlds on one single device, be it personal and work lives for busy professionals, or home and local networks for globe-travelers, while being more organized and cost-effective.
As part of the superior designed Liquid Jade family, it boasts a fully curved body with curved surface and gives the eye an impression of elegance and grace. 7.78mm slim and weighing only 116 grams, the Liquid Jade S is amongst the most elegant, lightest 5-inch LTE smartphones on the market; it is also comfortable to hold and use with one hand, thanks to the securing grip provided by the HD-textured rear. Jade S will be available in four colors: Cosmic Black, Lunar White, Ice Pink and Solar Red.
