Acer Jade Primo is the First Ever Phone to Morph into a PC
Today at this year’s IFA consumer electronics expo in Berlin, Acer unveiled the Jade Primo – a Windows 10 phone that will function as a PC as well. Dubbed a “pocket PC” by Acer, Jade Primo is touted as the world’s first handset that supports Continuum.
The Continuum is one of the most interesting features offered by Microsoft’s latest operating system. It basically enables your Windows 10 device to turn into a fully fledged PC provided you connect it to an external screen and controls, such as mouse and keyboard.
In case of the Jade Primo, the phone will ship with a suite of accessories including a docking station, a wireless mouse and keyboard, in order to allow users to make use of this feature.
As for specifications, the Jade Primo sports a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, and is powered by a Qualcomm 808 Snapdragon processor. The phone boasts 21 MP camera with a dual-LED flash at the back and an 8 MP front cam for selfies and video chat.
Additionally, the device is designed to run universal Windows 10 apps, as well as x86-based apps that have been converted for devices with ARM-based chipsets.
Acer has not revealed the price and release date of the Jade Primo as of yet. We’ll update you as soon as we have more details regarding the product.
