After years of false rumors and broken promises, Lenovo is finally gearing up to release its first Windows Phone handset. First Microsoft broke the news with a list of new mobile partners, and now a new rumor posted to a Russian online forum claims to device could be unveiled as soon as April.

The post also offers up some possible specs for the device, which appears to be a mid-range device rather than a high-end handset. Lenovo’s first Windows Phone will allegedly come with a display somewhere between 4.5 and 5 inches, a Snapdragon 400 or 600 processor, and cost roughly $400. The new phone will also run Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 OS, which the company is expected to announce in April during its BUILD developer conference.

As for whether the device will be a Lenovo phone or come with Motorola branding, it’s all but certain the Moto line won’t be experimenting with Windows Phone anytime soon. In a panel discussion at Mobile World Congress earlier this week, the company said it plans to stick with Android even after being sold off by Google.
