Acer today announced that the Liquid Zest Plus, the smartphone it announced at special event in New York City last month, is headed to North America this July.

Set to cost $199 USD, the Liquid Zest Plus will feature a 5.5-inch 720p display, quad-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable via a MicroSD slot), 13 megapixel rear-facing camera and 5 megapixel front-facing camera.
