Lenovo is a company which is best known for the computers and laptops they make, but it seems like the Chinese enterprise will try to compete on the smartphone market too. Anyone who stays in touch with the latest news regarding the world of smartphones has seen the leaked photos of a new Lenovo smartphone. Apart from several blurry photos, we didn’t have any other information about this supposedly new device, but the people at Lenovo decided that it is time to reveal more about their latest model.
The smartphone which was in the photos is the Lenovo S920 and it is already available in the web store of Lenovo China. However, the phone isn’t officially released yet and according to Lenovo officials, it will be available for purchase on the 8th of April. Of course, the company revealed a lot of information about the hardware specifications of the device and it looks like this device will be able to compete with some of the more popular models on the market.
According to the official information released by the manufacturer, the S920 will run the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It will also feature a 5.3” HD Display which works under a 1280×720 resolution. An 8MP camera will be positioned on the back of the device and on the front we’ll see a 2MP camera. The most interesting part of the S920 is the quad-core processor made by MediaTek. This model will use the MT6589 processor running at 1.2GHz. It will also boast 1GB of RAM, a 2,250 mAh battery and a microSD card slot.
Another interesting thing about the Lenovo S920 is that it will be one of the thinnest smartphones on the market – just 7.9mm. The device will be available for pre-order on April 1 and the first smartphone will be shipped on April 8. The S920’s hardware capabilities are very similar to the ones of the Galaxy Note II, but specialists are in the opinion that the Lenovo S920 will be much cheaper than the Note II, so the device should be quite popular in China. At the moment Lenovo aren’t planning to offer the smartphone outside of China, but in the near future we might see it in stores around the world.
Overall, the Lenovo S920 seems an interesting device and although it lacks a full HD display and more RAM, its attractive price tag will certainly turn it into one of the most preferred smartphones in China.
