(TS) – After launching the K900 smartphone with Intel’s Clover Trail processor, China-based mobile maker Lenovo has introduced its latest big-display device in the native market. Dubbed as S920, the big-display smartphone comes with a 13.4-cm (5.3-inch) display, making this a phablet device.
The display is HD quality and the phone runs Android 4.2 aka Jelly Bean version. Under the hood, it gets really interesting.
The S920 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and it seems to be the first Lenovo smartphone to runs this version of JB. That aside, the new handset offers a 5.3 inch HD (1280 x 720) display, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, MicroSD card support, 2,250 mAh battery, and a case that’s only 7.9mm thin. Lenovo is continuing its collaboration with MediaTek, and has armed the S920 with the company’s MT6589 quad-core processor – apparently clocked at 1.2GHz.
With these features, the Lenovo S920 is almost capable of standing next to Samsung’s Galaxy Note II. Of course, I expect the S920 to be cheaper than the Note II (since it’s powered by an affordable MediaTek CPU), so Lenovo might sell quite many units in China.
The Lenovo S920 will likely be released in China on April 8 for around $350. The availability details of the device in other regions hasn’t been revealed as of now. We’ll keep you posted.
