Five-inch smartphones are gradually becoming the new mainstream. Back in June, Lenovo launched a 5-inch Android handset called S880. Today, its successor LePhone S890 gets an official debut in China. No doubt, Lenovo S890 has a big improvement on its hardware, but the best part is its price remains the same as its predecessor at 1,999 yuan ($322). Specs and other details after the break.
The 5-inch IPS display is 16:9 aspect ratio that comes with 960×540 resolution. It is powered by a MTK 6577T dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of built-in storage. It has a Micro USB port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Micro-SD card slot that supports up to 32GB of memory expansion, and dual-SIM card slots that supports WCDMA 2100Mhz and GSM 900/1800Mhz.
In addition, Lenovo S890 packs 0.3 mp front-facing camera and a 8.0 mp rear camera with LED flash.
As with softwares, it runs Android 4.0 with Lenovo custom Clover UI interface.
It comes with three different colors — blue, white and black. Available for pre-order now at 360buy.
By comparing it with Big Cola’s 5-inch phone that we reported previously, Lenovo S890 appears to be overpriced. Big Cola offers about the same configuration, but selling for just 999 yuan (around $160). But the down side is, Big Cola (new local brand) does not have as many sales channels as an international brand like Lenovo.
