Acer announces ICS-powered Liquid Gallant and Gallant Duo

21 August, 2012

Acer has just announced its IFA lineup 10 days before the expo kicks off. It seems Acer has no intention to hold a press-conference like the others, but we will be able to find and see the new phones on its booth starting on August 31.

The two new handsets are Liquid Gallant and Liquid Gallant Duo. Both devices are identical, but for the fact that the Duo model offers dual-SIM (with dual-standby) support.

The Acer Gallant smartphones feature 4.3-inch qHD LCD displays and are based on the low-cost MediaTek MT6575 platform with a single-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 1GB RAM and PowerVR SGX531 GPU.

The rest of the specs include a 5MP snapper with LED flash, 4GB internal storage expandable via a microSD slot, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0 and 3G with HSPA support. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is ticking inside both phones probably with some minor Acer customizations.

The new Acer smartphones will be available in Ceramic White and Gentle Black and are expected to launch in September. There is no info on the pricing just yet, but chances are their price tags will be easy to swallow.
