Acer has unveiled a new smartphone at MWC 2011 called the Iconia Smart. The device has a massive 4.8-inch screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The phone is longer than your typical smartphone and has a thin profile with a slight curve to it. The body of the phone is metal and the device is 64.5mm wide. The big screen supports multi-touch and it has the four home keys we know from Android.

The rear camera is an 8MP unit with LED flash and the smartphone runs Android 2.3. That giant 4.8-inch screen has a resolution of 1024 x 480 allowing the user to surf websites without having to resize them or scroll the screen. The Iconia Smart supports HSDPA 14.4 and WiFi 802.11n speeds and has integrated Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.

Other features include a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 6-axis motion sensing for gaming and other uses, and a 2MP front camera for IP video calling. GPS is integrated and the phone has HDMI out. The battery is good for 8 hours of talk on a 3G network and 500 hours on standby. The Iconia Smart will launch on May 1 with pricing to be announced later.
