Acer’s Liquid Jade S smartphone is now on sale in the UK

Acer has revealed that the Liquid Jade S, the follow up to last year’s Liquid Jade, is now on sale in the UK and can be purchased from Acer’s online store.

The original Liquid Jade only came out last July, so what has changed for its successor? Some things have stayed the same, and the Liquid Jade S coming with a 5-inch 720p display, 2GB of RAM, microSD slot, and 13MP rear facing camera just like the original.

That said, it now has more powerful 1.5 GHz octa-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, a 5MP front facing camera for selfies, 4G, and a 2,300 MAh battery life. The Liquid Jade S also has dual SIM capabilities and runs on the latest version of Android KitKat.

The Liquid Jade S is available right now on Acer’s online store, priced at £229. At first glance that seems like a lot of money, but for that money you’re getting a fairly powerful phone with some decent hardware thrown in. The only real disadvantage is that it’s not full HD, but it’s not like you’re going to notice much difference anyway.
