Acer Liquid Z5 goes official with a 5-inch display

03 January, 2014

Acer has unveiled Liquid Z5 - the successor of the very affordable Liquid Z3. The new Z5 model comes with a bigger 5" FWVGA TFT display, though it is powered by the same MediaTek MT6572 platform.

The MT6572 is based on a dual-core 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 processor, Mali-400 graphics and 512MB of RAM. It should be enough to power the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ticking inside the Liquid Z5.

The rest of the specs include a 5MP rear camera with a LED flash, a VGA front facer, 4GB of expandable storage, and a 2,000mAh battery. The Liquid Z5 also offers dual-SIM support, 3G with HSPA+, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi N, GPS and an FM radio.

The Acer Liquid Z5 will launch in white and gray flavors and will cost as low as 169. The first markets to get the Z5 are Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Ukraine and the UK.
