This week, Acer presented to the media the technical innovations that will be displayed at the Computex 2016 conference. These new products include monitors, notebooks, and even a super battery phone.
Liquid Zest Plus is the star of this new list of releases. The Android 6.0 smartphone has a battery that can last for as much as three days. It also comes with a charger that will fill up 50% of the battery in less than an hour.
The new model provides a dual-SIM feature, FM radio, DTS-HD Premium Sound. As for the phone’s camera, it has 13MP and a very fast and precise focus.
The focus is said to be able to handle various scenes within a 0.03 seconds frame. Daylight scenes are managed by a phase detection auto-focus and the night scenes will have the benefits of a laser focus at short distances. An extra focus was added for capturing objects in bad light conditions.
The market launch is set for July and prices are expected to be up from $199.
The company also announced two notebooks models which are scheduled to enter the stores in August. The TravelMate P2 notebooks will have a Skylake Intel processor and will use Nvidia GeForce 940M graphics. The operating system will be Windows 10, and in the US they will arrive in the last quarter of the year, at a price of $599.
Another type of notebooks will be the Switch One 10 series that will be equipped with Intel’s Atom processors and will have a 10-inch display with multi-touch features. For this product, Acer set a price tag of $199.
As for the “Internet of Things” concept, Acer seems to have changed it to the “Internet of Beings” and thus came up with the moniker BeingWare.
One of Acer’s more traditional products from this area is the new cellular car module abMax01 which is designed to smooth fleet management and help to collect big data.
The company also presented a smart bread maker that can be programmed to prepare recipes by itself and a tracker with geofencing alerts and an emergency button.
Computex 2016 will take place next week and will bring out many more products and innovations from a large number of companies.
