We’re seeing the Liquid S2 as being on sale in the Netherlands, where it costs $680 (or €499 for folks living there). It’s also available in Hong Kong, where customers can pay a little less for it: about $620.
These prices put the Acer Liquid S2 in the same league as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3. Luckily for Acer, the specs don’t disappoint, including - beside the 13MP rear camera with 4K video recording - a 6-inch 1080p IPS display, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded thanks to a MicroSD card slot. What may put off some potential customers is the size of the Liquid S2. The device is downright huge, as our hands-on can testify.
Acer didn’t say if it’s planning to launch the Liquid S2 in North America. But we will let you know as soon as we hear anything on this.
