Lenovo Releases S930 and S650 Smartphones

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 6 comments

Alongside the flagship Vibe Z, Lenovo also announced two new S-series smartphones, the S650 and the S930.

The first of the two, the S650, features a 4.7-inch qHD (960 x 540) display and runs on MediaTek's quad-core 6582 clocked to 1.3 GHz and 1 GB of RAM. Internal storage is 8 GB, expandable to 32 GB via MicroSD, and the camera is an 8-megapixel lens with auto focus and flash. The front-facing camera is a 0.3-megapixel affair. Battery is 2000 mAh. It features a laser-etched fabric feel on the back cover. Pricing is set at $220. 


The S930 is larger, boasting a 6-inch (1280 x 720) display. It uses the same MediaTek 6582 CPU clocked to 1.3 MHz as its little brother and also has 1 GB of RAM. The rear-facing camera is also the same 8-megapixel lens, but the front-facing camera has been upgraded to 1.6-megapixels. There's also dual front-facing speakers. Aside from the display and the audio, the battery is one of the biggest differences, with the S930 carrying a 3000 mAh pack. Pricing starts at $320.


Both devices are available immediately in countries where Lenovo smartphones are already being sold. Stay tuned for our hands on at CES 2014.

    Are these going to be unlocked like the Moto G?

    These are pretty much garbage next to the Moto G.

    Since most apps aren't optimized for quad core CPUs, then they will only use the two of the cores clocked at 1.3 which is okay.

    An old Nexus 4 is better than the S930 and you can get it for $200 on ebay.
