Acer Liquid S1 is announced with 5.7-inch screen, quad-core processor
Acer is now officially on board the Android “phablet” bandwagon with the Liquid S1, which just got announced at Computex. What we have on our hands is a smartphone that stands out with offering a massive touchscreen display, listed among other noteworthy specs. At the same time, the handset will carry a reasonable price tag once it is on the market.

The Acer Liquid S1 offers a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. That’s far from “Retina Display” territory, but still a good enough pixel density for a decent user experience. The SoC chosen by Acer is made by MediaTek, with a quad-core processor running at 1.5GHz. Again, silicon of this kind won’t crush any benchmark records, but it should get the job done. The main camera has 8MP of resolution and can capture 1080p video, while the front-facing 2MP one has wide-angle optics. Acer promises that the battery inside the Liquid S1 will last through a day of usage. 

On the software side of things, we have Android 4.2 running on the Acer Liquid S1, enhanced with a few tweaks. One of them are the floating applications, which are basically widgets turned into apps that hover in their own little window above the interface. DTS Studio Sound is also on board for audio fine tuning. 

The Acer Liquid S1 is bound to launch in Q3 of 2013 for a price of 350 euro ($455). Select markets throughout Europe are to get it first, including France, Belgium, Netherlands, Ukraine, Russia, U.K. and Germany, followed by Spain and Italy. There are no hints leading us to believe that the Acer Liquid S1 will ever launch in the U.S.
