Acer announces the Predator 6 gaming smartphone


Along with announcing the launch of the Predator 8 gaming tablet, which will come in 2-3 weeks, Acer has also introduced its brand-new gamer-centered smartphone – the Predator 6. The presentation was a bit sparse and not much in the way of pricing or release date was mentioned, but we got a general idea of what the handset is going to be all about.

The Predator 6 smartphone will be outfitted with a MediaTek deca-core chip – we assume that's the MTK 6797 Helio X20 – and 4 GB of RAM. The screen's diagonal was not shared, but, judging by the naming scheme and device size, we'd say it's around the 6-inch mark. We can't possibly know anything about on-screen resolution, however. The main camera was announced to have a 21 MP resolution – dare we speculate a Sony sensor underneath?

Now, for the gamer features – Acer has outfitted the Predator 6 with the same 4-speaker setup that can be found on the tablet, for some extra-immersive sound. Additionally, the phone was touted to be capable of giving off controller-level haptic feedback vibrations.

We can't be sure how much these shiny features will actually improve gaming on a touchscreen device, but we are, at the very least, curious to test them out, should we get our hands on one. Stay tuned!
