Acer announces the Liquid Z320 and M320 – affordable Android and Windows 10 handsets
Acer has went super-affordable with its most pocket-friendly entry-level handsets – the Android-toting Liquid Z320 and the Windows 10-powered Liquid M320. Much like the Z330 and M330, the phones are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 SoC, but the variants in the Z320 / M320 do not support LTE. Other specs include 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a 5 MP main camera, and a 2 MP selfie snapper. On the front, both the Liquid Z320 and Liquid M320 are adorned by a 4.5” display with a wide-screen resolution of 480 x 854, which amounts to a pixel density of about 218 PPI.
Despite the low specs, Acer still outfitted the low-priced handsets with its DTC Studio Sound system, which promises superior performance for music-listening and clip-watching. Of course, this remains to be tested. Additionally, Acer's Bluelight Shield tech is also present on the handsets – it's an app, which controls the amount of blues in the display, in an attempt to provide a less disturbing night-time viewing experience – much like third party apps like Twilight have been doing before.
The new phones by Acer will be rolling out in different stages – starting from September and having a confirmed schedule all the way up to December. We do not have a concrete date or price for the Z320 / M320 yet, so stay tuned.
