Alleged shots of Acer's first Jelly Bean smartphone pop up on Chinese site


As a brand, Acer doesn't quite yet resonate in the mobile space. After all, it took the company the better part of a year to release the CloudMobile. But from the looks of these (very clear) leaks captured on Chinese site VR-Zone, it seems Acer may be prepping a mid-range device for that market. Allegedly dubbed the V360, the handset appears to be running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean which, if true, would be a first for the OEM. It's not clear if the UI is skinned, but if its previous work on the CloudMobile's UX is any indication, expect this one to bear very light customizations. Apart from that, there are a handful of unverified specs floating about, like a 4.5-inch qHD display, unknown dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz, five-megapixel camera and DTS sound (as indicated by backplate branding). As for the possible release and pricing for this mystery device, well, that's very much up in the air. Acer would first have to confirm its existence before we move on to those market realities.
