Acer’s next phone to be quad-core phablet

Acer didn’t have much of note to show off at Mobile World Congress. We had a chance to check out previously announced models like the Acer Liquid E1 and Acer Liquid Z2 and a new budget-friendly tablet, the Iconia B1, but a true flagship was not present. Turns out Acer is following the lead of other manufacturers and experimenting with the phablet category, as revealed by an executive at MWC.

The phone, the Acer Liquid S, will be sized in that range and utilize a quad-core processor. The specifics are unclear, but we can assume we’re dealing with something in excess of 5 inches. When we can expect an announcement is unclear, as well.

Acer has been known to release a few pretty nice designs here and there, so there is hope we could get something unexpected here: a truly premium device from the brand.
