Acer’s Liquid Zest Plus smartphone will be available in Canada this July for $249

Acer’s latest smartphone, the unfortunately named Liquid Zest Plus, is officially coming to Canada later this summer, the company confirmed today.

When it arrives in country this July, Canadians can expect to pay $249 outright in local currency to obtain the phone. We still don’t have information on carrier and retail availability, which Acer promised to provide MobileSyrup at a later date.

Despite otherwise modest specs, the Liquid Zest Plus is notable for its absolutely massive 5,000mAh battery, which the company says can power the handset for three days straight on a single charge.

The phone’s other specs include a 5.5-inch 720p display, quad-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, MicroSD slot, 13 megapixel rear-facing camera and 5 megapixel front-facing camera.
