Through a press release, Acer has made known the impending release of two entry-level Android smartphones called the Liquid Gallant and the Liquid Gallant Duo. The devices carry similar specifications. The main difference between the two is that the second device has a dual-SIM feature, which accounts for the “Duo” in the product name. Acer is marketing the Duo for frequent travellers as well as those who want to have the option of choosing better rates for services from two different networks.
Both devices feature a display with qHD resolution with a measurement of 4.3 inches diagonally. The interface places the power button at the rear side of the phone, allowing users to light the display easily once the device is taken out from a pocket or a bag. Inside, both smartphones run on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and have a 1GHz processor. Also onboard is a gigabyte of RAM and a storage capacity of 4GB.
The smartphones likewise offer a 5 MP camera that is equipped with LED flash. This comes with a smile detection feature and the ability to combine images into a single panorama shot. Users also have the capability of choosing the focus point through moving the viewfinder onscreen.
The smartphones are powered by a 1500 mAh battery that offers up to 250 hours of standby time and 6 hours of talk time. Connectivity features include WiFi, Bluetooth, FM Receiver, GPS, Audio out, Micro-USB, MicroSD slot, and the SIM slot. Meanwhile, for music, the device comes with enhanced Surround Sound.
Acer will be making the Liquid Gallant Duo available ahead of the Liquid Gallant. The Duo will hit the market this coming September, but will be soon joined by its single-SIM twin.
Those attending the IFA, however, from August 31 to September 5 will have the chance of seeing the devices before they are released.
