Acer releases 4K video phablet

20130908-141202.jpgUsually one would expect Apple or Samsung
to release the Uber-gadget first when it comes
to new technologies. In this case, however,
Acer seems to fire it’s aces from it’s sleeves

We talk about the Acer Liquid S2 phablet being the first phone tablet at 6″ form factor to record 4K or better say QFHD videos. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip has to process 24 times 8MPixels per second.

Alluring and stylish – Acer’s Liquid S2

Equipped with 2GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory, the data side is equipped standard but with actual microSDXC cards, you can boost the internal memory up to 80GB which is sufficient for most users.

The FullHD display is for sure one of the other alluring factors of this phablet and could steal the show from Samsung’s already announced Galaxy Note 3.

With Android 4.2.2, the phablet will come with an actual version of Android being able to serve this little pixel fracker. Test have to show if it can prove itself to be the Uber-Phone/mini tablet on the actual phablet market.

But what we see here, is already very promising.

For those who are now asking about an MSRP… sorry dudes, I was not able to determine any so far but expect prices above the magic 500 US$ border.
