Lenovo Introduces S660 S850 and S860 Smartphone Models

As expected, Lenovo will continue to build on its well-known S-series family in 2014. Three models are introduced at MWC 2014 event, S660, S850 and S860. The latter should appeal to owners of Motorola’s MAXX devices who seek to obtain new smartphone this year. The Lenovo S860 could support 24-hour talk time and it could even charge other smartphones. The powerful battery is paired with 2GB of RAM and quad-core processor.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t do LTE connectivity and comes with the slightly outdated Jelly Bean Android 4.2 OS. Nevertheless, Lenovo promises that the KitKat Android 4.4 update will arrive at some point. The 1.6Mp front-facing camera is ideal for video calls and there is also an 8Mp rear-facing camera.

The Lenovo S850 is a more affordable model with focus on lightweight glass thin construction and it has a reasonably large 5-inch display. Users could bet to get a quad-core processor. Photo buffs out there would also be happy to get 5Mp front-facing and 13Mp rear-facing camera. The Lenovo S660 rounds out the group with its 5-inch display, solid battery life and brushed metal construction. With its comfortable design and value-level price, the S66- slow in well under the S850.


iPhone 6 Could Be Thinner Than 7mm

It has been a while since first alleged component of iPhone 6 came straight from the assembly lines in China. The latest leak seems to show us the rear part of the upcoming 4.7-inch handset and it appears to be quite similar to early dummy units. There a couple of separated areas at the top and bottom. Overall, the photo indicates a larger device. This time, the alleged iPhone 6 seems to be constructed completely of metal material, eschewing the metal-glass structure of previous iPhone models.

To maintain the current aspect ratio and pixel density of iPhone 5S, the iPhone 6 could have 1704 x 906 screen resolution. Other things to expect are improved cameras, more powerful A8 64-bit processor and smoother implementation of TouchID fingerprint scanner.

As we can see, the iPhone 6 could be somewhat thinner compared to current iPhone models and rumors on an Apple smartphone model with sub-7mm thickness could become a reality. The slim iPhone 6 may arrive on September this year, followed by a phablet like model with 5.5-inch display. Overall, both devices should be ready for sale during the peak of holiday season this year. At the same time period, we would see the release of multiple Quad HD Android smartphone models.
