Lenovo has upgraded its K860 smartphone, even if just slightly, and it’s calling the refreshed device K860i. Very innovative, you’ll agree. But a new model number certainly wasn’t needed for just a few upgrades here and there.
The Lenovo K860i will be sold in China, just like its lesser-endowed sibling. The new phone will come with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz (that’s 200 MHz more than its predecessor), 2 GB of RAM (instead of 1 GB), and 16 GB of internal storage space (which is twice what the ‘vanilla’ K860 had).
Of course, these are all welcome additions, but as you can see there’s nothing really earth-shattering in there. The Chinese company has just brought its high-end device on par with the competition. In terms of looks, the K860i is identical to the K860. In the image above, the white phone is the new K860i, while the the black one is the K860. As we said – they look exactly the same.
They both run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and have a 5-inch 1280×720 touchscreen, are powered by a Samsung Exynos processor, have an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front-facing unit, as well as a 2,250 mAh battery.
