The Next Acer Event 2021: Dates, News, Rumors, and Announcements

Find out what's coming next from the hardware company

Acer makes desktop computers, laptops, monitors, and related hardware accessories for work and home. While it usually launches products all year long, it also does hold an annual press event called Next@Acer.

When Will the Next@Acer Be Held?

We don't yet know when the next event will happen. The last one was on May 27, 2021 at 9 a.m. ET. Tagged 'New Perspectives', the event was held virtually and can be viewed on the Acer site and on the Acer YouTube channel.  

Which Products Will Be Announced?

It announced the Enduro Urban line of notebooks and tablets in April 2021; watch for accessories for that product line to come out as well.

In April 2021, Acer disclosed plans to acquire a stake in FocalTech System, a Taiwan display driver IC supplier, to help fulfill its notebook orders. That acquisition could also mean additional products from Acer, including next-generation fingerprint, touch, display-driver integrated chips, and more.

The company also renewed and expanded its partnership with Envy Gaming in early 2021; the agreement ensures Acer will supply the esports organization with Predator gaming hardware. We expect more gaming news and initiatives to arise out of this partnership.
