We’ve been hearing reports that Lenovo were testing quad-core Mt6589 phones and now we have more proof thanks to these hands on photos showing the upcoming Lenovo A280T!

From the specs of the Levnovo A280T we can see the phone is a smaller 4.5-inch phone (which believe it or not phone makers there is still a market for) with a resolution of 960 x 540. There is dual-sim support, but only for TD-SCDMA, which is China Mobile’s own 3G network, an 8 mega-pixel rear camera and 4GB of built-in memory.

But it’s the performance we’re really excited about, and thanks to that quad-core Mediatek MT6589 CPU, 1GB RAM and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean the A280T manages an Antutu score of 13,656!

What makes the performance of the Lenovo A208T is the fact the at the phone is expected to go on sale for just 999 Yuan ($160) when it launches later this month!

It’s not just Lenovo who will be launching their MT6589 phones this month either as rival brands ZTE, TCL and Ginoee are all planning to have new models out in time for the Chinese Spring Festival holidays.

    Hey Andi, do you think that one might get a decent 4,7-5,3 inch HD MT6589 phone for well under $200 in the next 2-3 months or will they be more expensive than the old 6577 models?

    The prices that gizchina says are never the prices we customers get them for. Chinese websites shipping worldwide add about $25 then there is shipping costs too. We will be lucky if we can get one for $200.

      “The prices that gizchina says are never the prices we customers get them for.” That should read “The prices that gizchina says are never the prices we INTERNATIONAL customers get them for.”

    $200? a u sure? it’s about $250-270 at start! (look at jiayu g3)

    • http://www.gizchina.com Andi

      That’s the guesstimated China price. It will be more once resellers get their hands on them.

    Hey Andi, MT6589 is supporting hspa+
    Why Levnovo A280T is not supporting it?

  • Chris

    Will they make a version that works with Other 3G freq. Or maybe even 4G?

  • Tom

    I think it will be hard for the factory’s..
    All brands making new phones “very cheap” like:

    - JiaYu G4 QuadCore MediaTek
    - Subor Dream S Qualcomm APQ8064!!!!
    - Now Lenovo A280t MediaTek Only low resolution :(

    All phones = 999 yuan
    Subor Dream S = 1299 / 1499 yuan

    Looks Great!!

    I don’t thik the world will end if a smartphone is smaller than 5 inches.
    For the next year people will still avoid to buy phablets and most of them still consider 4.5″ is too big.
    So I consider the most wanted sizes are between 4.5″ and 5″ with a best seller for 4.7″.
    Don’t forget that many people still have 3.5″ iphone sizes and jumping even to 4.3″ is a step too big for them.
    Anything over 5″ will be harder to sell than anything under 5″. Time will tell this year.

    shame, international buyers wont be able to use this phone because its only TD-SCDMA
