Acer Liquid Jade 2

Mobile World Congress

At Mobile World Congress, Acer has unveiled the flagship Liquid Jade 2, the successor to the Liquid Jade. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED screen and a Snapdragon 808, but the most interesting feature on offer is the hybrid cloud storage, which sounds similar to what you get with the Nextbit Robin. Whereas the Robin offers 100GB of cloud storage, Acer is offering ten times that, with 1TB available. The vendor is saying that the hybrid storage functionality "seamlessly integrates local storage with cloud storage," and it will be interesting to see if Acer's implementation is as robust as that of the Robin.

Here's what's on offer with the Liquid Jade 2:

Category Features
Display 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED with 100 percent NTSC color gamut
SoC Snapdragon 808
Memory 3GB of RAM
Storage 32GB storage, 1TB hybrid cloud storage
Camera 21MP with dual-LED flash, PDAF, 4K video recording | 8MP front camera
Connectivity LTE Category 6, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1
Software Android 6.0 Marshmallow

The vendor is also highlighting the budget Liquid Zest, which offers a 5-inch 720p screen, 8MP camera at the back, 5MP front shooter, and quad-core 1.3 GHz processor for €109. The LTE-enabled model is priced at €149, and both variants will be available from April.

Acer isn't detailing availability or pricing for the Liquid Jade 2 just yet, but with the phone being showcased at MWC, we'll bring you additional details from the ground shortly.
