Acer confirms Liquid E1 for Europe ahead of MWC

Acer has confirmed ahead of MWC that its Liquid E1 smartphone will be coming to the European market

 

While not as high-profile as the company's laptop and Ultrabook products, Acer has produced the odd smartphone here and there over the years. Now the company has revealed that its Liquid E1 is confirmed for the European market.

The Taiwanese company has also revealed a second handset - the Liquid Z2 - which will be cheaper and more in line with the Nokia Asha or Samsung REX handsets.

The Liquid E1 comes with a pretty standard spec in the form of a dual-core 1GHz processor, backed by 1GB RAM and with a 4.5-inch 960 x 540 screen. However, the handset will come packing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and have a microSD slot for expanding on the 4GB native storage.

The Z2 meanwhile, has a smaller 3.5-inch HVGA screen and a choice of either a 3MP or 5MP rear-facing camera. The Liquid E1 boasts a 5MP rear-facing snapper as standard. The Z2 will also run Jelly Bean and both handsets will be available with either one or two SIM card slots.

The pricing of the handsets isn't confirmed yet - although ASDA appears to be taking preorders for the Z2 at £89. The Liquid E1 will likely be somewhere between the €199 to €229 price range and should arrive in the UK after debuting in Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Ukraine.

Of course, it will also be on show in Spain for the Mobile World Congress trade event taking place in Barcelona next week.
