It comes with four front-facing speakers which can be controlled with Acer’s own DSP algorithm and will “enhance sound quality with virtual surround.” Acer has put in a Predator Quadio and Dolby Audio and also comes with a proprietary app called the Predator MediaMaster that will let the users set up the audio and video settings in various modes such as album, movie, standard or game usage.
The Predator 8 includes 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS as connectivity options. There is no mention about the battery capacity. Acer has partnered with GameLoft and thus it will come with pre-loaded games like Asphalt 8 and 320,000 other games.
