Lenovo has previously launched a number of smartphones in the European and Asian market which failed miserably. However, the manufacturer release new devices for the Chinese market every now and then. The latest handset to enter the Chinese market is the mid-budget Android powered Lenovo A660 smartphone.
There is nothing much to talk about the specs, since you can’t expect much from a mid-range smartphone. Thankfully, this device runs on the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Operating System and the much-awaited Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update won’t make its way to this device in the near future. Lenovo A660 is the company’s first water-proof and IP67 certified device.
It comes with a 4 inch WVGA Gorilla Glass display, sporting a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, 1 GHz dual-core processor, dual SIM (GSM + WCDMA) capabilities, 5 megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera for video calls, 3.5 mm headset jack, Bluetooth, Google Play Store, MicroSD card slot, 32 GB expandable memory and a 1500 mAh battery.
The price and release date of this handset has not been announced yet. It is expected to be available for less than $200. Lenovo A660 won’t be available in other European and Asian markets.
