It has been announced that two new Lenovo smartphones are set to make it to shelves by the end of December. The new devices were announced by Lenovo this week, and they are both mid range devices run on the Android operating system.
This follows on from Lenovo’s recent moves into the smartphone market this year, which have included announcements for a new tablet, the Yoga, and a new flagship device, Vibe X.
However, the two new Lenovo smartphones will be the first set of mid range smartphones being released to international markets.
The first device has been dubbed the S650 and it is the cheapest out of the two new Lenovo smartphones. The S650 has been tagged with a $360 price tag and will have a 4.7 inch qHD display with a PPI of 234, and a MediaTek SoC chipset which includes a 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex A-7, which I could imagine would put on par with some of 2012’s first half flagship devices.
The S650 will come with 8GB internal memory and a micro SD card slot.
At a slightly higher price tag of $427 comes the Lenovo S930 – this device will come equipped with a huge 6 inch display and a similar resolution to that of the S650. The phone will also come with an 8MP primary camera, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera, as well as 1GB of RAM and the same 1.3GHz MediaTek quad core processor.
The S930 will also come with a 3,000mAh battery, which is fairly impressive given it’s cheaper price point. However, whether the 1.3Ghz A7 CPU will be enough to push the pixels smoothly on the giant 6 inch screen is currently the question on our minds, but we won’t be able to find out until it’s release date by the end of this month.
