Today we are entering a new age of mobile technology, as the first smartphone with 4K video capture capability was announced. Acer announced the Liquid S2, a 6 inch smartphone with this feature on board.


The device comes in a relatively short time frame after the Liquid S1, a 5.7 inch handset announced in June at Computex. The newcomer relies on a Snapdragon 800 CPU, a Full HD IPS screen and a 2 MP front camera. The 13 megapixel camera at the back is the one doing the 4K video capture and we also get a LED ring flash along with it.

Acer also implemented some software enhancements for the camera, like a Quick First Shot. This one allows you to take a pic right from the unlock screen and there’s also a Favorite Mode for up to 5 profiles with customized settings and effects. The Snapdragon 800 I mentioned is clocked at 2.2 GHz and we also get 2 GB of RAM to accompany it and a 3300 mAh battery. 4G LTE is on board as well and Acer said that the phone is coming to Europe first at the end of October.
