Acer is hoping gamers still have room in their hearts for a super-powerful smartphone, previewing the new Acer Predator 6 at IFA today. The handset, slipping into the company’s Predator gaming line-up which already includes massively powerful laptops and fancy laser projectors, runs Android on a deca-core processor.

It’s from MediaTek’s stable, though not all ten cores are likely to be active simultaneously. The Predator 6 looks a lot like the company’s new gaming tablet, with some super-gnarly black-and-red styling and four front-facing speakers.

Acer’s Predator 6 packs a 4GB of RAM, along with motion sensors and haptic feedback that, so the promise goes, should make tapping on-screen buttons feel more like using a physical controller. around the back there’s a 21-megapixel camera.

That’s because the Predator 6 isn’t expected to actually launch until early in 2016, and Acer still has to iron out the lingering bugs. As such, pricing and release details are yet to be confirmed.
