Quad-core Lenovo S920 with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean announced
The S920 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and it seems to be the first Lenovo smartphone to runs this version of JB. That aside, the new handset offers a 5.3 inch HD (1280 x 720) display, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, MicroSD card support, 2,250 mAh battery, and a case that’s only 7.9mm thin. Lenovo is continuing its collaboration with MediaTek, and has armed the S920 with the company’s MT6589 quad-core processor – apparently clocked at 1.2GHz.
With these features, the Lenovo S920 is almost capable of standing next to Samsung’s Galaxy Note II. Of course, I expect the S920 to be cheaper than the Note II (since it’s powered by an affordable MediaTek CPU), so Lenovo might sell quite many units in China.
There is no word if the S920 will be released globally, but we know that it’s going to be available in China starting early April. We’ll let you know if we find anything about this.
The other new Lenovo handset spotted a few weeks ago (S820) has not been announced yet.
