Acer announces Liquid Leap wearable and Liquid Jade smartphone
Besides unveiling the Iconia Tab 8, Acer today also announced its very first smart wearable device, called Liquid Leap. This will be offered alongside a new smartphone dubbed Acer Liquid Jade. Both products were briefly showcased by Acer at the end of last month, but it’s only now that the company is properly announcing them.

The Liquid Leap is water-resistant (IPX7-ceritfied) and has a 1-inch touchscreen display. It tracks your fitness, displays incoming calls and messages, and controls the music player on your Liquid Jade smartphone (via Bluetooth 4.0). Its battery can last up to 7 days.

The Liquid Jade smartphone is presented by Acer as having “a curved ergonomic outline all-around.” The handset is only 7.5mm-thin, and runs Android 4.4 KitKat. Not all of its features were announced, but we know that the Jade has a 5-inch 720p IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3, and a 13MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture. The smartphone will be offered in two color variants (black and white), bundled with the Liquid Leap wearable in some markets. It doesn’t look like the Leap can be paired with other handsets.

Pricing details haven’t been unveiled, but we’ll hear more on this in the third quarter of the year, when the Liquid Leap and Liquid Jade are going to be released.

Now hold on a sec here... A SINGLE back loudspeaker + DTS = does not compute?

Damn! That's one nice looking phone. Almost no side bezels.

It doesn't make sense...a great camera and slim bezels but only a 720P screen?
If it had a 1080P screen I would seriously consider it.

Exactly. If it was 1080 p I would probably buy it.

You cant even see the difference between the two, but the phone only have a mtk6582. If you want to have FHD good luck with that, i dont even think it can handle angry birds at 720p.
