Lenovo unveils two new Android devices: 3.8-inch LePhone S2, 5-inch LePad tablet
Lenovo has unveiled two new devices in China today, a smartphone and a tablet: the 3.8-inch Gingerbread-flavored LePhone S2 and the LePad S2005 tablet with only a slightly larger, 5-inch display.

The LePhone S2 finds its place somewhere in the higher ranks of the vague Android mid-range field. It comes with a 3.8” display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels lit up with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread visuals. 

On the back, there’s an 8-megapixel camera capable of capturing 720p videos. This should hint to you that the processor running under the hood is a single-core one and in the S2 it’s of the popular Qualcomm MSM8255 breed. Connectivity-wise, you get 3G only. The new LePhone will be offered in two versions depending on the internal memory and RAM: one with 8 gigs of storage and 512MB RAM and another one with 16 gigs and 1GB of RAM memory.

Going into Lenovo’s tablet offering, the newly unveiled LePad S2005, we have a 5-inch WVGA display, which should already translate into noticeable pixelization as the pixel density stands at around 174ppi. 

Just as the LePhone, the LePad S2005 also runs on Gingerbread 2.3.5, but has a faster, dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and paired with a gig of RAM. There’s a 5-megapixel rear camera capable of capturing 1080p video, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and the addition of HSPA+ for connectivity and a micro HDMI port. 

Both devices are coming to China in the near future, but there’s still no word about their stateside availability. Would you consider getting one of them if they’re coupled with a reasonable price tag?
