Android-based Acer Liquid Jade 2 offers up to 1TB of "hybrid" storage space
Acer today announced a new Android smartphone called Liquid Jade 2. Succeeding the Liquid Jade and Liquid Jade S, the new handset is notable for offering up to 1 TB of hybrid storage. By "hybrid", Acer means that the Jade 2 comes with 32 GB of on board memory, while the rest of up to 1 TB (that's 1,000 GB) is available thanks to cloud storage. According to Acer, cloud and internal storage is "seamlessly" integrated on the new device, but we'll have to wait and see just how well that works.

Specs-wise, the Liquid Jade 2 is very similar to the Windows 10-based Liquid Jade Primo - we actually heard that the Primo would have an Android variant, and it looks like that's exactly what the Liquid Jade 2 is.

Sporting a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, the Acer Liquid Jade 2 is not the most compact smartphone out there (but many users are fine with that anyway). Just like the Liquid Jade Primo, the Liquid Jade 2 is powered by a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, further featuring LTE connectivity, 3 GB of RAM, and a 21 MP rear camera with 4K video recording and phase detection auto focus. The new smartphone also comes with DTS Headphone:X technology, which reportedly provides "an immersive surround sound experience with any pair of headphones." We assume that the Jade 2 will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.

Acer did not say when, where, or for what price the Liquid Jade 2 would be released. We're hoping to find out more details at MWC 2016, so check back soon.
