Lenovo S90 "Sisley" now official with a shameless, iPhone-like presentation

Lenovo S90
If you thought that the practice of copying Apple was limited to mostly no-name manufacturers, then you were probably surprised to see Lenovo, the world's third biggest handset maker by market share, chime in. We're, of course, referring to the Lenovo "Sisley" S90, a shameless copy of the iPhone 6, save for some minor differences in design. 

But obviously that wasn't enough for Lenovo, for the way the S90 was presented on its website also reminds an awful lot of the way Apple presented the new iPhone 6. And when we say "reminds", we really mean "copy" – from the angles at which device renders are showed off, down to the chosen highlights, all of it looks a whole lot like Apple.

For those of you who wonder, the S90 is otherwise a decent device. It's got a 5-inch, 720p AMOLED screen, a super-thin, 6.9mm body, a quad-core Qualcomm processor, and 1GB of RAM. The shooter at the back is a 13-megapixel unit and there's also a generous, 8-megapixel selfie snapper at the front. The device is powered by Android 4.4.4 KitKat and will retail for 1,999 RMB in China (~$327 equivalent).

Never trust any Chinese company.

They forgot to put the Touch ID button on it. Companies like Leveno and Xiaomi have no shame at all.

Actually Xiaomi is making better phones than apple. And besure iOS7 and iOS8 got a lot inspiration from MIUI

Not MIUI but rather Flyme UI that has been around for a long time. Even the 128GB internal storage and body design of iPhone 6 was inspired by Meizu.

Well ok, "Sisley" is shameless BUT also an improve version of the iPhone 6 design. Spec-wise is ok...

Maybe the name is there to go in line with recent Tim Cook's news...

But really making fun of his sexuality is funny to you , then by all means keep doing it .

I was not making fun of anybody sexuality... just the name of this phone and its look.

If whats written was misunderstood or I expressed myself in a wrongful manner, then I apologize... but people shouldn't take those comments so seriously...

Common, there are jokes in the internet about the holocaust, putin, north korea, and people don't get offended... but they actually should be angrier than some ramdom dude complaining because I mentioned Tim Cook in my comment...

And if it pleases you, I will report my own comment for moderation! good day.

Maybe they're trying to send a message or something, copying blatantly and naming it 'Sisley', sissy name?

Normal, they are imitating the best phone in the market. Do you imagine that they will imitate a Nexus or a Samsung??????
