LG appears to be bent on keeping potential buyers of their devices off balance as they jumble around flagship releases in 2018. The company delayed and almost canceled the LG G7 ThinQ smartphone, but finally released in earlier this month. In the past, that would setup LG for a fall release of the next V […]

Acer isn’t known for their Android smartphones, but it appears that the company is working on one. The Jade Primo S58A was just tested on Geekbench running Android Marshmallow.
The Acer Jade Primo S58 is Windows 10 powered, which we could presume is where the Jade Primo S58A got its name from. The Android model is expected to include most of the same design elements and hardware specifications as its brother. The device ran through Geekbench not too long ago and posted a single-core score of 1133 and a multi-core score of 2957. As a result, there’s nothing to staggering here.
The reason this is important is because Acer hasn’t launched an Android model in quite some time. Other than the fact the device runs Marshmallow, the benchmark revealed a Snapdragon 808 processor and 3GB of RAM. These are the same specifications that its windows counterpart has. The Android model could be a sign that Acer is trying to get back into the Google ecosystem and run from Windows, which hasn’t given the company that much success when it comes to smartphones. It could also just be a backup in case the windows-oriented Jade Primo doesn’t reach the company’s expectations. Either way, I’m sure Android users won’t mind another mid-range offering.
The device could be released as early as MWC 2016, which is inching closer by the day. Let’s hope we hear more in the weeks ahead.

Early 2016 is sounding like a probable time for Samsung to launch a new Galaxy J1. This will replace the old generation Galaxy J1 and include a bump-up in specs and a refreshed design.
Based on a recent Twitter leak, the Galaxy J1 SM-J120F will have a 4.5-inch display with a 480×800 pixel resolution. The device will be powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos 3457 processor backed with 1GB of RAM. The leak also indicated that Android version 5.1.1 will be onboard. Last year’s Galaxy J1 was released in the first quarter, so we might catch a glimpse of the device as early as CES 2016. More details should be arriving soon, but for now, the most you can do is feast your eyes on the leaked image.
