iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Lenovo LePhone K2 Smartphone Fondled

Lenovo is quietly starting to build a portfolio capable of matching those of Samsung and Apple; the Chinese manufacturer has showcased a new handset, the LePhone K2, which comes with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.

According to Richard Lai from Engadget, the handset is powered by a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 chipset clocked at 1.5GHz, making it one of the fastest smartphones on the market.

It also has 1GB RAM, 1GB onboard storage (with a microSD card slot), an eight megapixel camera with full HD video recording. As for the screen, it is a 4.3-inch IPS one with an unknown resolution (almost certainly WVGA though).

One can also expect the usual features that can be found on a mainstream to high-end smartphone; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a front facing camera etc.

Lenovo has gone from strength to strength, announcing that it will launch a Windows Phone handset in 2012, introducing a 5-inch smartphone and a 10-inch Android tablet as well called the S2010.

The company has also surpassed Dell to become the second biggest computer manufacturer globally, just behind HP and is set to launch a smart TV product in 2012.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
