Acer announced at its global event a 4.8-inch huge touchscreen smartphone that actually looks more like a tablet. The screen is not only larger, it offers 1024×480 high resolution with a 21:9 aspect ratio. As Acer’s next flagship, the device sports a 8 Megapixel camera with LED flash, auto-focus and 720p HD video recording capability, a 2 Megapixel front-facing camera for video calling, Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi 802.11n connectivity.
This 4.8-inch Acer smartphone is powered by 1GHz SnapDragon processor and runs Android OS with Flash Player 10.1. It includes 6-axis motion sensing (Gyroscope + accelerometer). The phone has a full metal body, enriched by subtle wavy patterns, smoothly curved back and minimal width (64mm), conveying a sense of timeless elegance.
It’s currently unknown for what version of Android that the Acer smartphone is running. But the actual launch of the handset will very likely be in 2011 which hints that it’ll have a high chance to get the Android Gingerbread. Currently, the device has not been named yet but it’s expected to go on sale sometime in the first half of 2011.
