Launched at [email protected] earlier today, Acer’s latest mid-range offering not only has a rather odd name (that would sound totally at home at the shampoo aisle) but also a gigantic battery that apparently keeps fresh for up to two days.
Under the hood, the Zest Plus has a MediaTek MT6735 chip mated to 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. Its also home to a 5.5″ 720p display and a simply gigantic 5,000mAh battery. Its even got fast charging, so you won’t have to wait around for hours just for the battery to fill up.
You’ll also be getting a rather standard camera combo here, with a 13MP rear shooter with Tri-focus and 5MP wide-angle selfie camera up front. Tri-focus apparently stands for the three autofocus systems employed by the camera; phase detection, contrast detection and laser autofocus. Last but not least, the Zest Plus will have Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
Its interesting to note that internally its pretty similar to that of the Asus Zenfone Max which was released late last year, which sports the same specs, with the exception that it runs on a Snapdragon 410 chip.
We’re not entirely sure of the price or when it will hit locally, but the Acer Liquid Zest Plus will retail at under $250.
