At the moment, the only officially-announced smartphones to use a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor are the Galaxy S III (not all versions), and the Meizu MX 4-core. But there’s a third one that should be announced soon: the Lenovo LePhone K860.
Spotted in China, the K860 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and, as you may have already guessed, is a high-end handset. Apart from the powerful quad-core CPU (clocked at 1.4GHz), it features a 5 inch HD (1280 x 720) display, 8MP rear camera with LED flash, 2MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of ROM. The device weighs 185 grams, and measures 143.6 x 74.5 x 9.6 mm – hence it’s just slightly smaller than Samsung’s 5,3 inch Galaxy Note.
Lenovo – which hopes to sell a total of 18 million smartphones this year – should launch the LePhone K860 in China starting August. For now, there’s no word if the handset will make it to other markets.
