Gold diggers, check out some photos of the Lenovo Golden Warrior S8


It seems Lenovo has literally struck gold with its latest, unannounced smartphone - the Golden Warrior S8. Photos of the handset enjoying the Lenovo K900's company crawled on Chinese social media and are up for the whole world to see. Moreover, the GW S8 is said to sport a 5.3-inch 720p display, an octa-core MediaTek 6592 CPU running on 1.4GHz, 2GB RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, and a 2000mAh battery. 


However, the operating system is Android 4.2.2 - it's a more than an year-old version by now, which shows that MediaTek is getting late with supporting recent Android builds in its chips. Still, the Taiwanese silicon slinger has promised to bring KitKat in the beginning of May. Meanwhile, the XDA community has already brought KitKat to the quad-core MediaTek MT6589/MT6589T using CyanogenMod 10.2.



The biggest highlight of the Golden Warrior S8 is its golden design - while it comes off a little kitsch, it sure catches the eye and doesn't look like most smartphones out there. But if you feel it looks cheap, you are actually right, as the phone is cheap – it's said to be priced at a frugal $130 in China. However, if you envy Chinese customers for getting such nice phones for pennies, consider that the country's highest monthly minimal wage is about $300, or $2.79 per hour. For comparison, the highest minimum wage in the US is $9.32 per hour as of January 1 2014.



Thanks for the tip, Andrea!

The more people globaly become poor, the more golden things become an obsesion. Think that 1600 rich people are richer than more half the globe's population

It's not the real value of that thing, it's more about a lifestyle hubris

Shame they didn't make the bezel brownish. On the picture with the girl, it looks brown and thought it to be a nice color combination.

Don't buy the Lenovo S8 unless you speak/read Mandarin Chinese as they don't print a instruction manual in English
