Ahead of the Computex 2014 tech show, Acer has already announced a number of devices like the 8-inch tablet and a number of smartphones. Another impressive device that was announced at the same event was the Liquid Jade smartphone and Liquid Leap fitness band. The company has already revealed most of the specs of these devices.
The Acer Liquid Jade smartphone that would come bundled with the Liquid Leap smart band will be made available in select markets. It comes with a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) IPS display with a Zero Air Gap technology and Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
It is powered by 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor coupled with 1GB RAM and runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) OS.
It has a 13-megapixel rear camera with 0.3s focus time, F1.8 aperture and LED flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter as well.
Internal storage in the handset is seated at 8GB which is expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD card.
Connectivity options include 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and aGPS. Additionally, you will also get a Dual SIM support in the handset.
Acer Liquid Jade measures 140.5 x 69 x 7.5 mm and comes powered by a 2100 mAh battery.
Talking about the Liquid Leap, it is a smart band that lets you track your fitness such as steps, running distance, calories burnt and sleeping cycle. Somewhat similar to Samsung's Gear Fit, it connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth (4.0) so that it can show incoming call and SMS notifications on a 1-inch always-on touch screen display. It also shows time and weather and lets you control media on your phone.
The wearable device comes with IP certification which means it is water and dust resistant device. It will be offered in Moonstone White, Mineral Black, Aquamarine, Fragrant Pink, and Vivid Orange color variants. According to Acer the Liquid Leap smartband will offer a battery life of about 5-7 days.
The company has not revealed any details on pricing and availability of both the devices at the moment but the Taiwanese tech firm might show the device on its full glory at the Computex 2014.
