Acer’s CEO, Jason Chen, showed off the Predator 6 gaming smartphone to the trade show’s audience. It boasts a six-inch display and packs a 10-core processor from MediaTek. It’s also got 4GB of RAM and an impressive 21-megapixel camera. To complete the gaming-focused features, the phone comes with four front-facing speakers and gives use a powerful haptic feedback system, which Acer says replicates the same kind of vibrations felt on game controllers. “This will dominate any games you throw at it," an Acer executive said on stage at the company's press conference.
The Predator 6 will run Google’s Android software and will be available next year, but it’s likely the company will introduce it exclusively to Asia and then determine other markets, said Acer’s president of the smart phone products business group, ST Liew.
The company’s other big reveal, the Acer Predator projector, can throw a 120-inch projection onto a wall using ultra-short-throw technology, meaning that you don’t need a massive room to make the most out of it. Because the lens system on top of the projector fires the full HD images upwards rather than outwards, the Predator can function when placed just 20 inches from a wall. The projector will be available in mid-to-late-2016.
The Taiwanese company also revealed four new smartphones, a series of new monitors, several gaming PCs and laptops, and the Acer Predator 8 gaming tablet at the Berlin event.

Another interesting product announced at IFA is the Acer Revo Build "stackable" PC. A small form factor PC powered by an Intel Pentium or Celeron chip can then be expanded by stacking additional blocks for storage, GPU power, battery, or even a speaker. The concept looks like a mesh between the Intel NUC and Google's Project Ara.
