Lenovo K860 aims to undercut the high end Android market with a PHP 19,999 price point

Unveiled yesterday at the Lenovo Partners Night at Xiamen, China were three new smartphones among them the S560 and P700i and the formidable K860 which is featured in this posting.

The K860 was actually seen in the wild many weeks ago at a Lenovo press conference in Manila but it wasn’t the product highlighted that night. We were unable to take photos of the Lenovo executive touting the phone. Today however, we’re glad to see this phone finally in action. Perception-wise, the Chinese brand has been known to churn out affordable phones with decent specs for the mid-range market. They intend to corner the high end market as well while bringing prices to the masses. Such is the philosophy behind the Lenovo K860, a 5″ ICS Android tablet running on a fast 1.4GHz quad core processor. It also comes with a hefty 2250mAh battery and dual cameras (a main 8MP camera at the back).

The K860 is a single-SIM phone.

The price: PHP 19,999.00.

Lenovo also unveiled their future plans of cloud-based consumer computing which is essentially a Lenovo-based sync for smartphones, tablets, PC’s and their very own SMART TV which is making a debut by end of 2012. This is pretty much the same model adopted by Samsung with their AllShare sync model and it’s good to know that another manufacturing giant is going head to head with the Korean company.
