Acer Liquid E3 — 4.7-inch display and quad-core chipset for €199

Acer’s announced a pair of new phones ahead of next week’s Mobile World Congress event, with the most interesting being the Acer liquid E3. This is a budget-ish model with an RRP of €199 (approx £163), for which you get a 4.7-inch display powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor alongside 1GB of RAM, plus a mere 4GB of onboard storage.

The price premium over current budget Android king the Moto G is justified by the imaging system, with the E3 featuring a 2MP front camera and generous 13MP main camera. If it can out-snap the G-Unit we may consider a sidegrade. Here it is:

Sounds great. The only downside is the “New Liquid UI” bullet point. Wish they’d stop doing that. The Liquid E3 should launch here in April.

Acer also announced the Liquid Z4, a proper budget model with a 4-inch display, 1.3GHz dual-core chipset and €99 price tag. That’s not particularly exciting so here’s the thing about the more promising E3:

Barcelona, February 20th 2014 – Following the success of its smartphone range, Acer today unveiled the Liquid E3, a compact 4.7-inch smartphone designed for photo enthusiasts looking to take great quality images to share with friends and family through social media.


The Liquid E3 features a beautiful 4.7 inch high-definition screen with IPS technology which makes images appear vivid at a wider viewing angle. Weighing only 135 grams and with a curved design, the Liquid E3 provides the user with a comfortable holding experience making it easy to grip both vertically and horizontally.

In addition to its sleek appearance the Liquid E3 is also powerful, running on Android 4.2.2 and equipped with a Quad Core 1.2 GHz processor, 4 GB of internal user storage, 1 GB of memory, Wi-Fi, and integrated GPS.

Images that wow
The Liquid E3 comes with both a 2MP front camera and 13MP rear camera with ultra-fast focus which means users never miss a shot. Users are no longer restricted to require good lighting in order to take vivid images, with high-speed image processing, brilliant low light photos are captured with high brightness allowing users to take images wherever and whenever they fancy.

‘Selfies’ have also never looked better thanks to the Liquid E3 front flash which optimises portrait quality in short distance plus the AcerRAPID™ key on the back. For those taking videos, enjoy clear and crisp sounds thanks to the front speaker with DTS Studio Sound which provides sound seamlessly without any disturbances.

Multitask with ease
With Acer SnapNote, users can capture stage presentations with automatic angle correction and PDF/PPT conversion making it easier than ever to take notes during a business meeting. AcerFLOAT™ User Interface also allows app windows to stay open, so users can multitask without having to back out of one app to work on another. The press of the multitask key brings up the Float Apps where opened apps on a translucent screen float over the function being used. It is easy to access or toggle between apps like the camera, maps, calculator, notes and browser. A Float Caller notification ensures that users will not be interrupted by incoming calls that take over the full screen. When a call comes in, the Float Caller mini-window pops up and the user can choose to take the call or reply with a quick message.

Acer LIQUID UI
Acer LIQUID E3 features new Liquid user interface. The new icon and visual style provide user better visual experience. Moreover, users can easily mute incoming notifications. What’s best, it is so easily to change user interface setting. Your phone will always fits into you.

Easy to Share Files and Media
Acer smartphones also support AcerCloud, a file sharing and media management solution that lets users easily retrieve, enjoy and share their multimedia and data files using a variety of computing devices, including the automatic backup of your photos to your other connected devices. AcerCloud simplifies the management of digital assets across devices, regardless of platform, and is free on new Acer products.

Pricing and Availability
The Acer Liquid E3 will be available in Europe starting from April at a suggested price of €199. The Liquid E3 will receive Android KitKat 4.4 later this year.
