Under pressure to boost its presence in the highly lucrative but cutthroat smartphone industry, Taiwanese tech giant Acer has rolled out its newest smartphone model for the local market.
The new Liquid Jade Primo, a 5.5-inch premium smartphone running Windows 10 Mobile, features Continuum that allows Windows 10 universal apps to provide a PC-like experience when the smartphone is connected with a secondary display.
The new unit also carries the company?s Liquid Jade design language with a slim profile, curved back cover that fits comfortably in the hand and ergonomic 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass screen.
The rear and front covers feature a fine hairline-brushed finish, while a sharp diamond-cut band wraps the chassis and gives the smartphone a more polished look. The cohesive circular-shaped receiver, rear camera, and speaker inherited from the Jade family add a touch of elegance.
With a USB Type-C monitor, wireless display accessories or the Display Dock, the Liquid Jade Primo can provide a PC-like experience on an external display with Windows 10 universal apps.
It can be used as a touchpad and virtual keyboard or a keyboard and mouse can be connected for multitasking on both the screen and on the external display.
The Liquid Jade Primo can simply connect to any TV or monitor at hotels or anywhere. This is perfect for on-the-go executives so they can just simply leave their heavier laptops at home.
They can also project presentation decks to a projector or large screen while displaying the ?Presenter View? on the Acer Liquid Jade Primo, or play videos on the TV while using other apps simultaneously.
The Liquid Jade Primo features a Full HD AMOLED display that supports 100 percent of the NTSC color gamut, with 10000:1 contrast, and 176-degree wide-viewing angles.
A hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory provides powerful performance needed for multitasking, while LTE Cat. 6 and 802.11ac MIMO connectivity options make downloads a snap.
The 21MP f/2.2 auto-focus rear camera has dual LED flash and supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160) video recording and the 8MP f/2.2 front-facing camera boasts a wide-angle of up to 84-degrees, while supporting up to Full HD 1080p video recording.
To reduce the heat that resource-intensive multitasking brings, the Liquid Jade Primo features an advanced cooling system that efficiently dissipates the heat from the processor, while also reducing the overall rear surface temperature.
For a slimmer chassis, the Liquid Jade Primo?s antenna is formed by laser direct structuring (LDS) technology, allowing integration of the antenna and back cover.
Also contributing to the slimmer profile is on-cell touch technology, which moves the touch layer onto the outer glass surface of the screen, eliminating the touch substrate layer.
With BitLocker technology on Windows 10 Mobile, the Liquid Jade Primo allows for full encryption of all user data stored on internal memory, protecting the device from offline hardware-level attacks.
For corporate users, the Liquid Jade Primo also supports device management solutions such as Open Mobile Alliance Device Management (OMA DM) v1.2 and Microsoft Intune, so that IT personnel can help users be productive while safeguarding company information.
