Acer has decided to take a bite out of the budget smartphone market with the launch of two smartphones – the Acer Liquid Z630s and the Liquid Z530. Both the smartphones will be available exclusively on Flipkart. The Acer Liquid Z630s has a 5.5-inch 720p display, and is powered by the MediaTek MT6753 octa-core chipset clocked at 1.3GHz, coupled with 3GB of RAM. A 4000mAh battery powers the entire package. The smartphone has 8MP cameras on both ends. It is priced at Rs. 10,999. Moving on to the Acer Liquid Z530, the device has a 5-inch 720p display, and is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM. The smartphone comes with 16GB of built-in storage expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. The Acer Liquid Z530 also has 8MP rear and front cameras. A 2420mAh battery powers the smartphone. The device is priced at Rs. 6,999.
The specifications of the smartphone are average when you think about other smartphones available in the same price category. For Rs. 7,999, one can get the Lenovo Vibe P1m. The smartphone boasts of a 4000mAh battery making it a good device for those who want stronger battery lives. Budget smartphones today have showcased the ability to bring forth some impressive specifications. If you are in the market to pick up a smartphone under Rs. 10,000, you will have a large number of options to choose from. We have seen devices such as the Honor 4c, Yu Yureka Plus, Lenovo K3 Note, Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 and more enter the market, and even more OEMs and smartphones are flocking to India in light of the recent Indian technology expansion.
What remains to be seen, however, is how Acer tackles the issue of after-sales services, which is a contentious one among buyers.
