Acer Liquid Z200 is a budget KitKat smartphone

Acer introduced a couple of new E-Series smartphones yesterday, and accompanying them later this year will be a lower-end smartphone that falls into the budget range, the Liquid Z200. With this phone will come modest specs and the latest version of Android.

As with the other products Acer has just revealed, information on the specs is slight. What we do know is the Z200 offers a 4-inch display with a WVGA resolution, and will be available in five colors (featured above). An optional flip cover will also be available that allows users to turn on their phone with a flip.

One particularly handy feature with the Z200 is Acer’s Quick Mode, which is software that allows the phone to be set to one of four integrated profiles: Basic Mode for children, Easy Senior Mode designed for use by the elderly who may struggle to understand a smartphone, Classic Mode for someone new to smartphones, and Keypad Mode for those who use their phone primarily for calls.

Other features are DTS Studio Sound and a 2-megapixel camera — though not explicitly stated, it seems this is the only/rear camera, making it an extremely basic shooter with a few software options: panorama mode, continuous shot, and auto-smile. The phone will be available in Q3, but pricing isn’t yet known.
