We’ve already seen today the launch of Lenovo’s new flagship K900 Intel-based Android phone, and now we’ve got word of a whole batch of new IdeaPhone Android smartphones coming out of the Chinese manufacturers stable.
Split into three categories (S series consumer level phones, P series devices aimed at professionals and A series handsets aimed at budget-conscious buyers) five new IdeaPhones in total will be landing soon.
Looking first at the S series handsets, they’re headlined by the S890, a 5-inch device running at 960×540 resolution, packing in an 8MP in a device just 9.3mm thick and 176g in weight.
Moving down the S series list is the IdeaPhone S720, a 4.5-inch device with a 960 x 540 IPS display. It too features an 8MP camera, but squeezes in a 2000mAh battery in its thicker 9.9mm chassis.
The P series P770 device has a 540 x 960 pixels resolution 4.5 inch screen, and adds anti-virus and security software along with a long-lasting 3500mAh battery.
The budget handsets are the A800 and A690. The former features a 4.5-inch 854 x 480 resolution display and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor while the A690 is the entry-level smartphone from the range, with a 1GHz processor and 4-inch 800 x 480 pixel resolution display.
All handsets are dual-SIM, letting you use two different SIM cards from the one device.
No word on a UK release yet or pricing, but we’ll keep you posted.
