Acer Liquid E1 price out in Taiwan, UK graced with dual SIM variant

A price for the Liquid E1 has been made known in the UK and the Acer phone is listed as £174.99 on Expansys where it is currently being offered for pre-order. However, this version houses two SIM card slots and has the ‘Duo’ branding in its moniker. Also, the retailer seems to be presenting just the black variant as of now.

Buyers in Taiwan will be able to get their hands on the device for a sum that totals to 8,900 TWD, as observed by Unwired View. This roughly translates to around $299. It is unclear though whether this is the rate of the single SIM handset or the one touting two slots. Back in February, the company had announced the existence of the phone just ahead of the MWC.

The device has been built around elements that contribute towards a rich multimedia experience. Dual DTS speakers and a 4.5-inch IPS display inhabit the rear and front panels, respectively. The said sound system supposedly enhances the quality of audio with volume maximization. As for capturing pictures and footage, the 5MP lens on the flip side comes with a bundle of features. These include zero shutter delay, autofocus and an LED flash. The first attribute allows instant clicking of photos and it also permits up to 16 shots to be taken in burst mode. A 0.3MP front-facing webcam has also been incorporated.

The highlight of the phone is said to be its Float Caller tool. Owing to this, users can continue watching videos or utilizing applications uninterrupted in the event of an incoming call. Instead of taking up the entire screen space, the notification appears in the form of a minimized bubble which gives consumers the option of answering the phone or sending a text message to the caller. Moodagent is a utility that puts together music playlists. The compilations will be formed based on listeners’ moods and tastes.
