Acer's $200 Liquid Zest Plus handset will boast big battery and big camera
In a recent announcement, Acer has revealed the pricing and availability details of its newly-unveiled 'Liquid Zest Plus' Android-powered smartphone. The device was first announced by the company in New York in April.
According to the announcement, the cost of the Acer Liquid Zest Plus handset -- which will feature a 5.5-inch screen -- will be $199. The handset will hit the markets in the month of July.
The forthcoming Acer Liquid Zest Plus handset will boast the inclusion of several impressive features; with two of the device's most prominent features being its massive 5,000mAh and its 13-megapixel camera --- a fairly big camera for a sub-$200 smartphone.
According to Acer's claims, the gigantic battery of the Liquid Zest Plus handset will have the capability to easily last throughout the day, even with intense data consumption. Moreover, the battery will have a 'quick charge' system because of which it will be able to achieve 50 percent of its charging capacity in barely one hour.
So far as the big 13-megapixel rear camera of the Liquid Zest Plus handset is concerned, Acer has described the camera as a "hybrid tri-focusing system," because of the fact that the camera can pull focus extremely fast --- in just
0.3 seconds, to be precise. In addition, the handset will also feature an attractive 5-megapixel front-facing camera with an 85-degree angle.
