In addition to PCs and tablets, the folks at Acer make smartphones too, you know. In fact, their Android-powered CloudMobile handset, which we got to play with back in February, should hit the shelves no later than next month. But that isn't the only device the company plans to launch in September.
The Acer Liquid Gallant Solo and Liquid Gallant Duo have been announced officially and will be on display at IFA 2012. When it comes to hardware, both handsets are practically identical, with the dual-SIM functionality on the Duo model being the only significant difference.
Other than that, both Acer Liquid Gallant models come with a 1GHz processor made by MediaTek, 1GB of RAM, 4.3-inch screen with qHD resolution (540 by 960 pixels), and 5-megapixel main camera. To no surprise, Android 4.0 comes installed out of the box. Last but not least, the smartphones will be available in Gentle Black or Ceramic White.
There is no word regarding the pricing of these two smartphones, but it probably won't be long until we find out more on the matter. The Acer Liquid Gallant Solo and Gallant Duo are scheduled to launch in September.
