Acer Liquid Z6 Max appears with a 4,670 mAh battery and a 5.5-inch display

Acer has held a ceremony in its home country of Taiwan to celebrate the closing of the 2017 Taiwan Universiade Games.

The ceremony was held to honor those who participated in the games where the General Manager of Acer Taiwan presented 380 special-edition Acer Liquid Z6 Max smartphones to those who participated in the presence of Su Liqiong (Secretary of the Taipei Municipal Government) and Li Weibin (Director of Taipei Municipal Govt. Information Bureau).

The kicker here is that weve not heard of such a smartphone before. Weve heard of the Liquid Z6 and the Z6 Plus, but the phone pictured below is a variant of the Liquid Z6 with a much larger battery.

The Acer Liquid Z6 Maxs leading feature is the large 4,670 mAh battery. Theres also an unmentioned octa-core CPU which we are assuming is a MediaTek model. There are also 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The display is of the commoditized 5.5/1080p variety. Conflicting translations say there is either a 13MP or 16MP main camera with an aperture of f/2.0. There are also capacitive keys and a fingerprint scanner.

Acer prices this device at 9,900 yuan (1,499 USD) which is quite high for such a smartphone. This leads us to believe these special edition smartphones might feature real gold parts or accents on the phones body. Again, the post was translated from Mandarin so that part isnt entirely clear.

The phone also features the Universiade cartoon bear on the back with the Games logo.
