Lenovo Mobile to launch new and affordable smartphones in the Philippines

When he hear the word Lenovo, we would instantly think of laptops or notebooks. But now, they're not only into these devices. They are now trying to have a share in the smartphone industry, especially here in the Philippines, which is already booming and attracting many phone manufacturers. The Chinese-based manufacturer already have several models out in the market, but as far as I can remember, they have only one smartphone available, the Lenovo A60, which is an entry-level android phone costing about PHP6,000.

And now they're trying to penetrate the industry aggressively by releasing three more smartphones, the Lenovo A65, Lenovo P700, and Lenovo P880.

Lenovo A65, which I believe is an update to Lenovo A60, is powered by an 800 MHZ processor (A60 has a 650 MHZ processor). It has a 3.5 inch display screen and is running on Gingerbread OS. You can have it for a very affordable price of PHP5,499!! And also, it is a dual-sim phone just like A60.

On the other hand, Lenovo P700 has a 1 GHZ processor and sports a 4 inch screen. It will costs about PHP 10,000-12,000.and will be available by the end of June.

Lenovo P880, which is a high-end device and, is the company's answer to Samsung Galaxy Note, sports a large 5 inch screen and a 1 GHZ processor chip. It will cost around P18,000 to P20,000.

Lenovo P700 and Lenovo P880 will both run on Android 4.0 ICS.
