Acer's 4K video recording-capable Liquid S2 quietly released in some markets
Acer tried to make a nice impression back in September, when it announced its Liquid S2 smartphone (or should we call it phablet?) as the world’s first that’s capable of recording 4K (3840 x 2160) video. And although the company’s initial plans saw the S2 being released in October, the device hit the shelves only recently (sometime earlier this month).

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.
