Acer is definitely taking advantage of a little down time in the flow of news this weekend, and has decided to show off a couple of things the company plans to unveil this upcoming week at CES. Amongst a wide variety of other non-Google-related products, the company has announced a new budget Android smartphone with 4G LTE (which seems like it’s going to be an even more prevalent trend than ever at this year’s CES.) Yesterday, the company also announced a new 15.6-inch Chromebook that it claims is the first of its kind.
The smartphone, dubbed the Liquid z410, is a lot like many other phones getting the spotlight this week. It’s going to sport 4G LTE connectivity, a 64-bit capable processor, and a quite affordable pricetag. Specifically, the phone is going to pack the MediaTek MT6732 system-on-a-chip with an ARM Mali-T760 GPU, a 5 MP back camera, a 2 MP front camera, a 4.5-inch QHD display, and a battery that will give you 5.5 hours of talk time. All of this comes in a package that’s starting at just €129, which is right around $150.
Keep an eye on 9to5Google and 9to5Mac this week as we get a chance to go hands-on with some of these products and others.
