China's fastest growing smartphone maker Lenovo is no stranger to innovative handsets. The company has a proven record in churning out the best phones in the affordable segment. Now once again Lenovo is set to announce a new mid-range phone that could become a range in its native home land.
VR Zone is reporting that Lenovo is getting ready to officially launch the world's first 64-bit Android handset. In fact the handset has been spotted at a local event, sponsored by China Mobile, in the company's home land. The Lenovo A805e is apparently expected to be released in the middle of next month, and will be priced under $200 (about Rs. 12,000 approximately). It is rumored to come with a faux leather back cover, and should be available in black, white and champagne gold colors.
Spec-wise, the Lenovo A805e would come with a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 960 x 540-pixels. The biggest highlight of the new device is that it will be powered by a 64-bit quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor, coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board storage. There's an 8-megaopixel rear-facing camera, and a heavy-buty 2500mAh battery fitted inside. The massive phablet is said to support 4G LTE, alongside regular connectivity options, including NFC. On the positive side, the handset supports dual-SIM. The phone will run on Android 4.4 Kitkat.
The Lenovo A805e will be a low-end device targeted at young brigade. Also it should be noted that Qualcomm Snapdragon 401 64-bit chipset isn't said to be a ground breaking when it comes to superb performance.
