The 6-inch smartphone will also offer the fastest connectivity and processing speeds with its LTE compatibility and Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz processor.

Although Acer’s previous smartphones have been targeted at the low to mid-range market, the Liquid S2 phablet sets the bar slightly higher.

With a 13 megapixel camera, the S2 is pitched as the perfect guide to any budding photographer; its 2MP front-facing camera and 88 degree wide viewing angle makes for high quality photographs that could rival the best smartphones on the market.

The Acer Liquid S2, like previous Acer smartphones, will feature the Acer Float user interface, allowing users to flit between apps and programs seamlessly, without having to exit one to open another.
