Acer puts first 4K video camera in a smartphone

Acer is a company known for its laptops and not Smartphones, that’s why it comes as a surprise that it has managed to steal the spotlight away from HTC, Samsung, Apple and the rest of it to debut a 4K camera in its latest Smartphone.

According to Engadget, Acer’s 6-inch Liquid S2 is the first Smartphone to be announced with the capability to record 4K videos. It’s a feature that’s been rumored for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III Smartphone for a long time, but Acer has stolen the show from its Korean rival to the punch — the Note III will be announced at a September 4thevent in Berlin. It should be noted that 4K UHDTVs are definitely still in their infancy, as here in Africa people are still struggling to equip their living rooms with the standard Full HD 1080p capable TVs.

In other specs the giant Android-powered Liquid S2 has a tremendous 6-inch 1080p IPS display, a Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM, and also features an LED ring flash around the camera, which is good for 13-megapixel still shots in addition to 4K video. Despite the very competitive specs, the Liquid S2 isn’t likely to make a splash internationally. The device will sell the handset in Europe starting October. The company will be showing off the Smartphone at this week’s IFA conference in Berlin. You can read the entire press release from source link.
