Acer Liquid Jade S goes on sale in the UK


Latest 4G smartphone from manufacturer now available in the UK through its own web store

Acer’s latest 4G handset, the Liquid Jade S, has went on sale via its UK web store priced at £229.

The handset – launched at CES 2015 – has a five-inch display, a 1.5 GHz octo-core processor, 2300mAh battery, 13MP rear camera, 5Mp front-facing, 16GB internal storage and 2GB of RAM.

It will launch with the Android 4.4 Jelly Bean OS but is upgradeable to the latest version, Lollipop, when it is released later this year.

The first version in the Jade S range was released in July 2014 and the latest model has improved on the front-facing camera, internal storage and a number of other specifications.

The phone, which weighs 116g, has a fully curved body and comes in at just 7.7mm thick.

The phone is available in Lunar White and Cosmic Black. It is believed the phone is unlikely to make it into UK stores and will be only available through Acer direct.
