There’s no detailed spec sheet at present for the first Liquid handset since the Liquid Express was announced back in November, so we can’t tell you what processor will be powering the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich action or what resolution the 3.7-inch display is.
What we do know is it has got a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash, panoramic image capture and touch focus, and NFC skills for Android Beam fun. We also know it will be coming in a range of “trendy colours” such as “Sakura Pink”, “Alpine White”, and “Cat’s-eye Black” and that the display will be matched to the chassis “making each smartphone a unique fashion statement”.
