Acer’s New Liquid S2 Is World’s First Smartphone Capable Of Recording 4K Video


If 1080p just doesn’t do your home movies justice, then you may want to check out Acer’s new Liquid S2, the world’s first smartphone capable of shooting 4K video. It’s packed with high-end features, including a 1080p display and the latest quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.

Acer has clearly put a lot of focus on photography with the Liquid S2. Its 13-megapixel camera is capable of recording 4K video with a 3840×2160 resolution, and it has a four LED ring flash for “low-light and macro capturing.”

It also boasts lots of nifty camera features, such as the ability to shoot 27-megapixel panoramas, slow-motion video recording, a “best shot” feature, and a 2-megapxel front-facing camera with an 88-degree wide-angle lens.

The Liquid S2 also packs a 6-inch 1080p display, a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. Fortunately, there’s also a microSD card slot, which you’ll need to take advantage of if you plan to shoot lots of 4K video.

There’s also 4G LTE connectivity and a 3,300mAh non-replaceable battery. The Liquid S2 ships with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean pre-installed with the Acer Float user interface over the top.

The Liquid S2 will go on sale in Europe at the end of October, and Acer will be showing off the device at IFA in Berlin from September 9. There are no plans for a U.S. launch just yet, but that could change later on.
