Three new Lenovo smartphones coming soon to Russia, incuding the Lenovo Vibe X
A trio of new handsets are coming to Russia out of China by way of Lenovo. All three are Android flavored devices and one in particular might catch your attention with its 6 inch screen. That model, the Lenovo S930, might want to compete with the other phablets in the sandbox, but mama didn't dress him too warmly if you know what we mean. And if you don't understand, check out the specs and then the light bulb should go on over your head.

The Lenovo S930 comes equipped with that aforementioned 6 inch screen. Ah, if only the China based manufacturer had kept things up from that point. Instead, we have a resolution of 720 x 1280 on the device which makes for a middling pixel density of 245ppi. Some handset manufacturers in the region use MediaTek silicon to save money and Lenovo follows this plan by having the quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6582 CPU under the hood. There is 1GB of RAM on board along with 8GB of native storage. A 3000mAh cell keeps the lights on and Android 4.2 is installed. An 8MP camera adorns the back of the unit while a 1.6MP shooter is found in front. The Lenovo S930 measures 170 x 86 x 8.65mm and weighs 170 grams. It will be priced at approximately 13990 rubles ($427 USD) and will be available at the end of the month.

The second upcoming Lenovo model is the Lenovo S650 and this features a smaller 4.7 inch screen with resolution of 540 x 960. The combination results in a pixel density of 234ppi. It offers the same quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek processor and 8GB of native storage as seen on the S930. A microSD slot is available for additional storage. The included 2000mAh battery will power up the phone, which measures 138x69.8x8.7 mm and weighs 126 grams. Android 4.2 is installed out of the box. A dual SIM version of this handset will also be available. The Lenovo S650 is set to be priced at 11990 rubles ($366 USD) and will be launched sometime later this month.

Also due to be released in Russia at the end of the month is the Lenovo S960 also known as the Lenovo Vibe X. With a 5.5 inch screen and a resolution of 1080 x 1920, the Gorilla Glass 3 protected display is beveled and offers a wide-viewing angle. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589W CPU with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage included. The back and front facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and 5MP respectively. A 2000mAh battery powers the device. Lenovo calls this the thinnest FHD smartphone available with dimensions of 144x71x 6.9 mm and a weight of 120 grams. Android 4.2.2 drives the model, which is expected to be priced at 16990 rubles ($518 USD).

Why can't Samsung makes beautiful phones like these?

I'm waiting for P780 successor (2 GB of RAM, Full HD, 4000 mAh battery, priced ~$400)

Sammy is extremely conservative when it comes to durability - A quite decent policy IMO.

First they should give Android 4.4 kitkat to their flagship i.e. Lenovo k900 and add support to custom roms like cyanogenmod, miui etc. Man Lenovo k900 is great device which is let down by Android customization of lenovo..........
