Acer's Windows 10-powered Jade Primo smartphone, which was showcased at last year's IFA and was again announced at this year's CES, is now up for pre-order in Europe. The device is listed on Orange as well as Expansys Portugal's website.
As for the cost, the listings show a pre-order price of €615 for the 32GB black-colored model. This is about €50 higher than what Microsoft's Lumia 950 (which has similar hardware) costs in Europe currently so it puts the Primo in a rather tough position.
Specs-wise, the handset is powered by a Snapdragon 808 SoC and sports a 5.5-inch (1080 x 1920 pixel resolution) AMOLED display. It has 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable internal memory, and packs in a 2,800 mAh battery.
In terms of camera, the Jade Primo features a 21MP rear unit and an 8MP front shooter. Weighing in at 150g and measuring 156.52 x 75.9 x 8.4 mm, the handset also offers dual SIM support.
While there's no official word on when the smartphone will start shipping, rumors say it will hit the European shelves in February, and a US release will follow.
It's Windows 10 as an OS now not just phone anymore because they all run Windows 10. Surface phone is coming this year too. Updates on Android are terrible. OEMs put too much crap on Android OS that they have to create their own buggy updates. Update...
don't comment for the sake of commenting... OEMs don't make money in some cases as many OEMs using Android are making good returns (Samsung, Xiomi, Alcatel, LAVA, LG,,,, and many others, except some which is normal in any industry or business)... ...
Actually its android where nobody makes money except google and samsung
