It’s time for another leak. This time it’s an Acer device. Acer hasn’t done to well in the smartphone game lately. In fact I can’t even remember their last phone that was on sale in the US. Although they have had plenty of tablets available, some of which did well and others, not so well. This Acer V350 is the second Acer smartphone leaked in the past few days. This one seems to be a more high-end device than the Acer V360 that was leaked a few days ago.
The Acer V350 seems to be sporting some great specs:
- 720p display
- 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 (most likely dual-core)
- Android 4.1.2 – Jelly Bean
And that’s about where the specs end. It’s still early in the leaks and rumor stage for this device so there’s not a whole lot of information yet. This may even turn out to be a fake device, or one that gets scrapped and never introduced to the world. We saw plenty of fake rumors leading up to the Android 4.2 and Nexus 4 announcement in late-October. So by now we should all know to take this leak with a grain of salt. But so far, those specs we have don’t make it look like high-end device. The Snapdragon S4 is a kinda old dual-core processor. To make it a high-end device I’d expect a Snapdragon S4 Pro or another quad-core processor, right? But let’s save judgement until we hear more specs. Like the size of the display, resolution, battery size, RAM, internal storage, etc.
If this indeed a real device, we could be seeing it at Mobile World Congress in late-February in Barcelona. That’s where we’ll see a ton of new devices from all the manufacturers. That’ll be released in different markets, mostly in Europe. As CES is mostly a US mobile show which is in January in Las Vegas. Hopefully Acer will be more timely getting this device to the market than they have in the past. That is usually the downfall of many devices shown off at CES and Mobiel World Congress.
