Lenovo unveils 6-inch phablet, other new devices Lenovo has unveiled a whole new lineup of smartphones, meant to offer something for every would-be device owner.
Starting with the phablet, Lenovo's 6-inch S930 has a polycarbonate body, a 720x1280 LCD IPS display, a MediaTek 1.3GHz quad-core processor (28nm process using four power-efficient ARM Cortex-A7 cores).

Additionally, there is 1GB RAM, only 8GB internal storage (with microSD), and dual 8MP/1.8MP cameras. The device should last all day with a 3000mAh Li-Polymer cell battery. The phablet will sell for $319 off-contract and includes dual-SIM capabilities, which is a sold price for those who want a large screen but otherwise mediocre specs.



The new 4.7-inch 540x960 Lenovo S650 is powered by the same 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 chipset, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, dual-SIM and dual 1.8MP/8MP cameras, but with a smaller 2000mAh battery and no stereo speakers. The device will sell for $229 off-contract.



Finally, the mid-range A859 has a 5-inch 720x1280 resolution IPS display, the same 1.3GHz MT6582 chipset with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of microSD-expandable storage. There was little other information on the device, but it should sell for a similar price to the other devices.

At CES, the company will launch its flagship Vibe Z, featuring higher-end specs and a better resolution display.
