Acer announces two budget Liquid Z phones alongside the mid-tier Liquid Jade Z
Hot on the heels of its 4G Liquid Z410, Acer has unveiled three new smartphones in its Liquid line-up, the Z220, Z520 and Jade Z. The first two are aimed at the budget-tier of the market, while the new Jade Z is more of a mid-range package flecked with high-end features.
Starting with the Liquid Z220 and Z520, both phones come packing the same basic specs. A 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor and 1GB of RAM offer suitable performance for day-to-day tasks. The Z220 is listed with a 4-inch WVGA 233PPI display, the Z520 looks larger, but details aren’t clear. Both also offer 8GB of internal storage, dual SIM card slots, a 2-megapixel front facing camera, and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Acer’s customised software features a Basic Mode for kids, which offers simple call and text tools, an Easy Mode that opens up a few extra functions, and the Standard Mode for users who presumable know their way around a smartphone.
