Lenovo announces 5 more Android smartphones at CES
Those who have been carefully following the CES buzz might be familiar with the Lenovo IdeaPhone K900, which was announced during the event. It is the company's newest Android flagship, powered by a 2GHz Atom processor and sporting a massive, 5.5-inch display of 1080p resolution. However, that isn't the only handset that Lenovo has on display. In fact, there's five more smartphones in stock, all of which run Google's mobile operating system.
Among them is the Lenovo S890, which its maker has optimized for entertainment use. What the device offers is a massive, 5-inch display with the not-so-impressive resolution of 960 by 540 pixels. There's also an 8MP camera on its back operated by "Lenovo Super Camera software", whatever that is supposed to mean. The device sports a thickness of 9.3-millimeters and weighs 176 grams.
Next in line comes the Lenovo S720 flaunting a number of multimedia features like the built-in Dolby Digital Plus for better sound and the same Super Camera software we just mentioned above. As far as tech specs go, you get a dual-core MTK system-on-a-chip, 4.5-inch IPS display with 960 by 540 pixels of resolution, and a pair of cameras – 8MP on the back and 1MP up front. All of that, including the 2,000mAh battery, is tucked inside a 9.9-millimeter body.
The Lenovo P770 comes next – a smartphone made for business professionals who need a highly reliable handset. That explains the presence of a huge, 3,500mAh battery that can even be used to charge other devices via the USB on-the-go support. All that juice should be enough to provide a continuous talk time of up to 30 hours. Native anti-virus software comes pre-loaded onto the device.
Further down the list we see the Lenovo P800, which is an entry-level Android smartphone. As such it comes with a dual-core 1.2GHz chip and a 4.5-inch FWVGA (480 by 854 pixels) screen. There's a solid 2,000mAh battery behind its back cover.
Last but not least we have the modest Lenovo A690 offering a 4.0-inch WVGA display and powered by a SoC of about 1GHz. Presumably, that's the most affordable smartphone of the bunch.
All of these new Android smartphones by Lenovo come with dual-SIM card slots, allowing their owners to use the services of two carriers at the same time. China will be the first market to get them in January of 2013, followed by "select global markets".
