Alongside the announcement is a photo of the flagship K900, sporting a 5.5″ IPS screen with a slim 9mm profile. last year when we went to Xiamen to visit the Lenovo factory, we were given a macro view of the manufacturer’s vision which includes their tagline “For those who do.” According to Kobe, “I am excited to partner with a market-leader like Lenovo … I work to pursue excellence in all that I do, and I believe that Lenovo shares that brand DNA and is going to set itself apart as a technological leader for smartphones across Asia.”
To differentiate the three models, the S720 is essentially your multimedia phone that sports a crisp IPS screen. The A800 is your mid-range performance phone while the A690 is Lenovo’s entry-level Android device that doesn’t suck (some entry level phones from manufacturers aren’t even worth it).
The S720 comes with the following specs:
Greetings from Xiamen, China! I’m here for an overnight trip with the Lenovo and Open Communications team. We had a chance to tour the Lenovo factory where their smartphones and tablets are made. More on this in another post. Last night was Lenovo’s debut for their Q3 lineup of phones in time for the holidays. These are the Lenovo K860, P700i and S560.
EDIT: If you want a 5″ Lenovo phablet that competes with the Samsung Galaxy Note, the new Lenovo S880 sells for PHP14,999 only. It’s also dual SIM!
Lenovo is on a roll. First, they upped the bar of the PHP 5,000 thereabouts smartphone by introducing the dual SIM A65 Android device. Today, they are selling a powerful Android device that comes with a big 4″ screen and a long-lasting 2500mAh battery. This is by far the most impressive package we’ve seen for a mid-ranged Android device with all the latest updates that’s only a little over PHP 10,000. Plus, it’s dual SIM.
We have a unit with us so expect a more in-depth review. This phone is being sold in stalls starting today.
