Lenovo S920, with 5.3 inch screen, ready for Chinese launch on April 8th
The three major Chinese handset manufacturers have basically been trying to build more high-end models which makes the Lenovo S920 an interesting unit for the company. We first feasted our eyes on this handset nearly two weeks ago when a leak allowed us to get a look at it. Starting with the 5.3 inch 720p display (with a thin bezel) and the quad-core 1.2GHZ MediaTek processor, it sounds really good. But for some reason, Lenovo decided to go with 1GB of RAM instead of 2GB of RAM that has become the standard on top-shelf models.

Another place where we could see a problem is with the 2250mAh battery which will have to power up the rather large screen. A larger capacity cell might have been better suited for the task. Did we mention the 16GB of native storage that can be expanded using the microSD slot? And the phone has back and front-facing cameras of 8MP and 2MP respectively. One place where we have to give kudos to Lenovo is with its decision to go with Android 4.2 out of the box.

The Lenovo S920 is expected to launch in China on April 8th for the equivalent of $350 USD, which is not bad considering that this is an off-contract price. With all of the features that the Samsung GALAXY Note II offers, we wouldn't call this a replacement for that phablet, but for those in China, it seems like a decent value for the price.

Looks cool, but only 1 GB of ram, 8 MP camera? Lenovo needs to make it "bigger"!

yh wtf is this, i thought even though Lenovo is a Chinese comp, it's different from the rest of the pack, since they paid IBM to bought the computer business instead of copying and make clones. Now they just straight up copy 98% of an HTC design. Now i realize, all Chinese are the same., no exception.

Dont worry tol, Lenovo's android software/Skin is near Stock, even at dual core it's buuuutttery smooth. There's barely any bloatware to worry about. Also Lenovo's UI is like a very toned down Go Launcher EX btw. . . (Lenovo s890 owner)

Yes. I myself is surprised to find out that Lenovos software is optimized very good. This phone might retail at 1399 - 1499 when it hit our shores. As for the date, either May or June as the earliest. Dang this phone is drool worthy for the price.

I’ve notice stuttering
only in the message thread, thats primarily because when loading the specific thread I’m already scrolling it. all in all you wont notice any.

Being an American, these words are hard to type... China is #1 when it comes to Smartphone Super Powers... There, I said (typed) it. O.0 Hope the U.S.A. can bring back some of those Jobs. Get it, Apple.
