Lenovo announces five more Android phones, none of them to hit the EU or USA

Lenovo has announced five new Android smartphones meant for the local Chinese market. They're decent, but certainly not worth going gaga over. Bring us the K900 already!
January 9, 2013

Lenovo announced their flagship smartphone, the K900, earlier this week. For those of you who don’t remember why it’s special, it’s basically a 5.5 inch 1080p monster with a dual core Intel 2 GHz Atom processor. We thought that would be the only device from Lenovo at CES, but nope, we couldn’t have been more wrong. The company just announced five handsets. Let’s run through all of them briefly.

First up is the S890. It’s highlight feature is the 5 inch screen, which sadly only does 960 x 540 pixels. That’s better than the 5 inch Galaxy Grand from Samsung, but worse compared to just about every other 5 inch smartphone on the market. It does have an 8 megapixel camera however, so maybe it’s not too bad?

Next up is the S720. It has a smaller 4.5 inch screen, but it has the same resolution. It’s main features are dual SIM support and a massive 2,000 mAh battery. It too has an 8 megapixel camera.

The P770 doesn’t come with any specifications, except for the battery, which is rated at 3,500 mAh. It’s a phone meant for business users. It even comes with anti-virus software preloaded. That’s not exactly a good sign that Chinese Android phones need such software, but hey, this is the world we live in.

Moving on lower down the food chain, there’s the A800. It’s a dual core 1.2 GHz device, dual SIM, with a 4.5 inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display. There’s a 2,000 mAh battery on-board, and … that’s about it.

Finally there’s the super cheap A690. It has a single core 1 GHz processor, 4 inch 800 x 480 screen, and it too has dual SIM support. Other than that, nothing was mentioned.

If yo’re looking for some hard numbers regarding pricing and ship dates, we’re sad to say this, but they weren’t provided. More importantly, there’s a very high probability that you’ll never see these phones on the streets of your local country, unless China is the place you call home.
