A Phone for the UK

for you, for everyone, for flying the flag

At the moment, the big flagship phones are made by American, Korean, Japanese & Chinese names, there isn’t much option for British people to get behind the national flag and show off a British name! We want to change this…

The Union Flag badge lets British people be proud of and support a national brand. It will feature on all Acorn products!

An Instant Classic

a classic keyboard for a modern icon

The original Micro had a keyboard that was both iconic and unique. The Micro Phone C5 has a ‘soft keyboard’ in a similar style to the original- our small tribute to the classic.

What’s the C5 all about? We think the original Acorn team’s achievements deserve them to have statues and be on banknotes! All flagship products will be named in tribute to these legends. C is in tribute to Christopher Curry, who changed the world in 1978 by co-founding Acorn!

Acorn old

We’ve given the Acorn logo a modern facelift to reflect our new fresh, forward thinking identity.  

Your AI Phone

voice activate your life with 

Assistant at your service

With a simple ‘Ok Google’ you can ask your assistant questions, tell it to do things, find answers and make plans. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help and its works with lots of your favourite apps, all with your voice.

QUAD Cameras

helping you get pro standard pictures

The best camera is the one you have with you! Take awesome selfies, professional style bokeh digital shots, panoramic masterpieces as well as awesome video.

WHY? The 13MP photos you take are perfect for posting to your timeline, but also plenty big enough for printing onto canvas or making a photo book!
