Lenovo teaser highlights the rear-facing speaker on an upcoming phone
A teaser released by Lenovo points to a high-quality speaker for an upcoming handset. The teaser shows the back of a Lenovo branded phone with two speaker grilles. A line is coming out from one of them that reads "Speaker Uber Alles," which roughly means in German that these speakers are above all other smartphone speakers in the world.
As we mentioned, there are two speaker grilles, but the teaser shows sound coming out of only one of them. That could indicate that this phone will offer sound in mono, not stereo. And while we are talking audio, we would be remiss if we didn't point out the Dolby logo that lies on the back of the phone.
According to Slash Gear, which used a combination of anonymous tips and precedent from past Lenovo devices to come with some estimated specs, the phone could feature a Gorilla Glass protected 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. The Snapdragon 616 SoC is expected to be under the hood with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 3GB will be inside, along with 32GB of native storage. Those seeking additional memory will be able to access the 128GB capacity microSD slot. The phone is said to be clad in aluminum, and will support Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0.
We could see the device unveiled at MWC in Barcelona, which kicks off on February 22nd. That is a week from today.
