I thought it would be Samsung or Sony to announce the first smartphone to offer 4K recording capability but Acer today stole the limelight by introducing the 6-inch Acer Liquid S2, the first 4K-recording smartphone.
Apart from the 4k camera which obviously would be the talking point this season, the Liquid S2 also features a competitivezhigh-end specs that includes a 6-inch 1080p IPS display, a Snapdragon 800 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 33oo mAh battery.
Armed with a 13 megapixel camera on the rear and a 2 megapixel shooter on the front capable of full HD video, Acer has added many camera tricks to the device.
The camera software enhancements include a “quick first shot” feature that lets you shoot a picture right from the phone’s unlock screen, and you have the ability to adjust focus and exposure separately, a “favorite mode,” which lets you create up to five profiles with customized settings and effects, a Full Panorama Pictures that grabs up to 27-megapixels in a single picture, Smart Best Shot that automatically detects photo type and takes multiple shots for best selection.
The Acer will began selling Liquid S2 in October beginning with Europe and there is no word on the US release yet. There is no word on the pricing either.
