Acer debuted at the IFA 2016 in Germany today by announcing three new entry-level handsets, the Acer Liquid Z6 and Liquid Z6 Plus smartphones and the Acer Iconia Talk S tablet. All of these devices run the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and they have different scheduled dates for purchases.
Acer Liquid Z6 smartphone
The entry-level Acer Liquid Z6 comes sporting a 5-inch IPS touchscreen display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, runs on the 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6747 SoC backed by one GB of RAM, 8GB of flash storage with microSD support, and comes with 8MP and 2MP cameras. It supports 4G LTE network, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. It looks more like a perfect timewaster because Acer plans to retail the Liquid Z6 for $130 while we have smartphones featuring better specs than it like Leagoo T1 with the Fingerprint addition for $89.99. God knows why Acer brought such phone in 2016 (a phone without GPS?). However, Liquid Z6 will start retailing by November.
Acer Liquid Z6 Plus smartphone
The metallic Acer Liquid Z6 Plus looks a little bit better than the worthless Z6. Its 5.0-inch display panel features 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, runs the 1.3GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage, sports a 13MP main camera and a 5MP front-facing selfie snapper. The important features are the 4G LTE network, Wi-Fi, dual-SIM support, and a respectively large battery of 4080 mAh.
The Liquid Z6 Plus will start selling starting by December for the price tag of $277. Well, Acer should reconsider the pricing of these phones as they’re not competing any available phone either with specs or pricing.
Acer Iconia Talk S tablet
The latest member of Acer’s introduced products at the IFA trade show 2016 is the Iconia Talk S tablet. Iconia Talk S tablet runs the octa-core MediaTek MT8735 chipset with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and has dual-SIM functionality. It’s advertised by the company to have 9-hour battery life in mixed use and sports a respectively good-enough rear camera of 13MP while for video chat and selfies is the standard-for-tablets and worthless 2MP unit (I am bored of 2MP cameras on tablets too). The good news is that Acer will start retailing the Iconia Talk S sometime later this month for $188.
