After we’ve seen the Acer CloudMobile S500 smartphone for the first time at Mobile World Congress event in February 2012, we’ve become interested by Acer’s activity on the smartphone segment. The CloutMobile S500 impressed when it hit the market in September 2012, and now the Asian company is reportedly planning another smartphone model, this time running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
We are talking about Acer V360, a smartphone you can admire in the pictures below. The first pictures of the terminal leaked a week ago, but new photos and details emerged in the meantime.
Acer V360 is running on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and it boasts a 4.5-inch display with qHD resolution, dual-core processor clocked at 1 GHz, VGA front-facing camera and a primary camera with a 5 megapixel sensor. Moreover, it also has a microSD card slot, and because Acer CloudMobile has an 8 megapixel camera and HD display, you can consider the new-comer a member of the midrange segment.
The new Android-powered smartphone sands out for its DTS audio technology, as the logo on the back lid indicates. Acer V360 is 9.9mm thick and weighs in 140 grams, pretty close to its bigger brother CloudMobile.
Rumor has it that this model will have a price of $300 contract-free, joining the list of the affordable smartphones of the Chinese company. I am curious to see whether the DTS sound upgrade is better than the Dolby Mobile technology.
