Acer introduced some new products yesterday, among them being a new pair of smartphones: the Acer Liquid E600 and E700. Both smartphones are similar in features and design, with the E700 obviously being the higher-end model of the two. Among other things, both smartphones -- which hit shelves in the third quarter of this year -- offer 5-inch IPS displays.
Joining the newly announced Life 8 is a higher-end smartphone, the Blu VIVO IV. This handset expands the company's VIVO series, and promises both luxury and durability, with Blu boasting that its latest phone is composed 98-percent of glass and aluminum. As with its other phones, the VIVO IV is sold unlocked.
Samsung's Galaxy S 5 Active has officially launched, arriving both online at Samsung and through AT&T. The smartphone, which has leaked repeatedly over past weeks, is a rugged variant of the company's Galaxy S 5, and brings with it such things as shock and water resistance, and, as tipped, three physical buttons.
The Nokia X we got our hands on back in February will be getting an upgrade in the near future, with leaks cropping up for a Nokia X2. According to an AnTuTu benchmark that has surfaced, the X2 will be similarly low budget like the current iteration, but will bring with it a larger screen, among other things.
Some cables are more fragile than others, but all end up succumbing to their frequent use, particularly smartphone charging cables, which are often used multiple times a day. MOS, apparently unsatisfied with that reality, has rolled out a couple new cables called "Spring" that feature reinforced construction.
