4K video recording with a mobile? Acer Liquid S2 6" phablet arrives

If you thought the smartphone wars are waning, the just-outed Acer Liquid S2 proves they've simply moved to the phablet category. Acer's newest flagship is the first phone with 4K video recording capabilities. Actually this is not a feature of its 13 MP camera, but the 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor inside, yet the Liquid S2 is the first phone to actually unlock that touted video processing capacity of the Qualcomm's chipset.

Acer's first phablet will come at a time when this field is getting crowded with excellent devices like the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the upcoming Galaxy Note 3, but it will come armed to the teeth, as it also features a 6" 1080x1920 Full HD IPS-LCD display. We also get 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, and a hearty 3300 mAh battery, solidifying the phone's presence as one of the best-equipped phablets out there at the moment. The handset also captures 1080p video with 60fps, and can take a picture directly from the lock screen with the Quick First Shot function.

Dimensions? Pretty big, to say the least, at 6.54 x 3.39 x 0.35" (166 x 86 x 8.99mm) mm, and the weight is not really in check at half a pound, so we'll see how it fares against those other phablets. We will size it up at the IFA 2013 expo that we are attending starting tomorrow for your viewing and reading pleasure.
