Lenovo sold 6 million smartphones in 2011, mainly in China. That’s not much – at least not reported to the sales figures of major players like Samsung, Apple, or HTC. But the company has way bigger plans for this year.
According to DigiTimes, Lenovo indents to launch up to 40 new smartphone models by the end of 2012, and hopes to sell 18 million of them. Reportedly, the Chinese company’s new handsets will range from low-end (with prices under $160) to high-end, dual-core ones. The majority of them will probably run Android.
It’s said that Lenovo took 10% of the Chinese smartphone market in April, becoming the country’s fourth largest smartphone vendor.
One of the latest Lenovo smartphones introduced in China is the LePhone K800 (pictured above), which runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, features a 4.5 inch HD screen, and is powered by a single-core Intel Atom CPU clocked at 1.6GHz.
