Acer’s new Liquid Jade 2 comes with 1TB of hybrid storage

Acer Liquid Jade 2

#Acer has just announced the #LiquidJade2 smartphone at the ongoing MWC 2016 event in Barcelona. The handset is your usual flagship grade offering from Acer, but with an attractive twist. The company mentions that the phone comes with up to 1TB of user accessible storage for music, videos, photos as well as apps. The company calls this “hybrid” storage.

So here’s how this works. The Liquid Jade 2 comes with 32GB of onboard storage plus a microSD card slot which can take cards of up to 200GB. The company uses its technology to merge this with cloud storage to give users the feel of native storage. The functioning of this is yet to be checked out, so we wouldn’t jump to conclusions at the moment. But if apps and other video content can be stored like on a native storage device, this feature has the ability to impress.

As for the other hardware specs of the handset, the Liquid Jade 2 comes with a 5.5 inch 1080p AMOLED display, a 21-megapixel camera on the back, an 8-megapixel front camera, a hexa core Snapdragon 808 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 1TB of the aforementioned hybrid storage and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
