The front speaker boosted by DTS SoundTM technology allows for a richer experience.

In an elegant, glossy and silky finish design powered by Android 4.2.2, the Liquid Z4 provides users with many features such as a dual-core 1.3 GHz processor, 4 GB of internal user storage, Wi-Fi, integrated GPS, and a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash.

Best-in class camera

The 5MP camera is great for those who love snapping away whilst on the go. With its 5 elements f2.4 lens and auto-focus, pictures appear even sharper and more vivid than before.

Custom profiles 4 you

  • The Liquid Z4 features four different Quick Mode profiles targeted at different users and age groups.
  • Basic Mode: for youngsters with fixed call and text functions;
  • Easy Mode: messages, radio, weather, magnify, clock, quick call contacts to make life easier;
  • Classic mode: all main functions in a simple and organized layout for first time smartphone users;
  • Keypad mode: for people who primarily use voice and need their keypad right away.

New Liquid UI and AcerFloatTM apps

The Liquid Z4 features a nw Liquid user interface. The new icon and visual style provide users with a better visual experience. AcerFloatTM User Interface allows app windows to stay open, so users can multitask without having to back out of one app to work on another. The press of a key brings up the Float Apps shortcut where apps on a translucent screen float over the function being used. It is easy to access or toggle between four apps like the camera, text, calculator and stopwatch. A Float Caller notification ensures that users will not be interrupted by incoming calls that take over the full screen. When a call comes in, the Float Caller mini-window pops up and the user can choose to take the call or reply with a quick message. 

Easy to Share Files and Media

Acer smartphones also support AcerCloud, a file sharing and media management solution that lets users easily retrieve, enjoy and share their multimedia and data files using a variety of computing devices, including the backup of their photos on their connected devices. AcerCloud simplifies the management of digital assets across devices, regardless of platform, and is free on new Acer products.

Pricing and Availability

The Acer Liquid Z4 will be available in Europe starting from April at a suggested price of €99. The Acer Liquid Z4 will be available in two colours: Essential White and Titanic Black.
