Lenovo recently announced two new Android smartphones, including the S930 phablet and the S650. Both phones run Lenovo’s custom user interface on top of Android, though the exact version of Android is currently not known.
The S930 packs a 6-inch display with a 720p resolution, a quad-core MediaTek 6852 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 8GB of storage, a large 3,000mAh battery and 1GB of RAM. It’s definitely not the most powerful smartphone on the block, which leads us to believe that it’s probably targeted at emerging markets where it won’t have to compete directly with powerhouses like the Galaxy Note 3 as aggressively. Meanwhile, the S650 has a 4.7-inch screen, 8GB of storage, a similar processor and a smaller 2,000mAh battery.
The phones are expected to launch in December in some markets, though we don’t expect to see them hit the United States. The S650 will set customers back about $366, Phandroid said, while the S930 will ring up at about $427.
