Acer launches cell phone with gamer footprint, but don't get excited

Without any fanfare, Acer launched the Sospiro A60 as a new entry-level phone option. The model was identified in the Mexican market, and represents the brand’s first attempt at the smartphone market in the last five years.

The device has a very flashy look, with neon green lines around the black construction. The camera module is centralized and has a hexagonal shape, while the front has very thick edges above and below the screen – something common before the notch became popular.

Its display is 6 inches, with LCD technology, HD+ resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio – therefore, a little wider than other current smartphones.

The performance package is led by a Unisoc SC7731E processor, a platform that already appears in models such as the Nokia C20, ZTE Blade L9 and Alcatel 1C. It has four cores clocked up to 1.3 GHz, and therefore is geared towards the simplest of tasks.

The configuration of the device is completed with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage — characteristics that are very close to the minimum determined by Google for the new versions of its operating system. Maybe that’s why the Sospiro A60 runs Android 11 Go out of the box, not being informed a forecast for the arrival of updates for more current editions of the little green robot.

Two cameras appear on the back: an 8 MP main, aligned with a 2 MP depth sensor. An 8 MP component is on the front, and LED flashes can be used on the front or rear.

Its construction houses a 3,000 mAh battery, which is charged via a micro USB port. There’s also a micro SD reader up to 64GB and a 3.5mm P2 port for headphones, while wireless connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2.

price and availability

So far, the Acer Sospiro A60 has only been found in Mexico, and there is no official information about its sale in other countries. Its price is 1,599 Mexican pesos, which can be converted to around R$415 without extra taxes.

Acer has previously stated that it will sell smartphones in Brazil — but without a concrete date for that. However, the models should be a little more advanced than the Sospiro A60, as they will have Snapdragon processors and support for 5G.
