Acer's Android V350 Smartphone Outed

A benchmark for Acer's unannounced, Android-powered V350 smartphone has confirmed the device's existence.

Appearing on GLBenchmark's listings, the benchmark profile reveals that the Acer V350 will feature a 1280 x 720 display, which is likely to see the handset's screen stretch more than 4 inches.

The device is powered by Qualcomm's 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor, which is the same one that powers Samsung's Galaxy S3. The specifications also reveal that the V350 will be powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

Acer's V360 smartphone and Iconia B1 tablet were outed recently as well. The former in particular seems to be inferior to the V350 with a 4.5-inch 950 x 540 resolution display and 1GHz dual-core chip.

    Why out another me-too phone? How about a super high ppi display, removable battery, SD card slot? Come on Acer, you could have been a contender.

    A contender for what? The high-end smartphone market share is already locked up between Samsung, Apple, and to a lesser extent HTC. Mid-range, off contract phones with lower equipment costs are more likely to attract 'regular' buyers than a display with more pixels than your eye can resolve and a $200 higher price tag. There's more market share available in the mid-range where people are so tied up to current SGS3 and iP5 product upgrade cycles.

    It sounds to me like you want more, just for the sake of having more.
