Lenovo K860 Quad-core goes on sale

Lenovo have launched the new K860 quad-core phone today and what a killer phone it is! Great spec, from a well-known brand and a good price to boot!

Measuring in at a rather large 5 inch the Lenovo K860 quad-core phone is one of the larger, high performance Android phones in its class right now!

While it might not be able to match the speed of the Xiaomi M2 and it’s Qualcomm CPU, the Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core CPU clocked at 1.4Ghz and with 1GB RAM is still plenty powerful enough for most users out there, and thanks to 1080 video capture support I imagine we’re going to see plenty of K860’s in the hands of large Android phone lovers soon.

Gizchina News of the week

Speaking of camera’s Lenovo have done a great job and have given the quad-core K860 a 2 mega-pixel front camera, and a 8 mega-pixel rear camera which is absolutely spot on for a phone of this price.

Other highlights include a 1280 x 720 resolution 5 inch screen, rather large 2250 mAh battery, 8GB of on board storage with an SD card reader which supports up to 64GB, Mali 400 GPU, all at the affordable low price of only 2188 Yuan ($343).

I don’t now about you guy’s but with all these great choices I’m torn! Do I go fot the Xiaomi M2 which is more powerful, cheaper but likely very difficult to buy or just waltz in to a store anytime I feel and pick up the Lenovo K860?!

    Good, but battery is weak, compared to the battery of a 4inch a789 which got a 2000mAh and this being a 5 inch diagonally means around 30 percent more area plus higher resolution and only 10% battery increment. Nope, not a deal for me atleast.

    Battery war is going to be next processor war.

      @Max I certainly agree with that! In face I’m more interested in having a phone which will last a full day on a charge than a super fast phone at the moment!

    intrigued this or the new zoppo 5inch beast. how much ram and gorilla glass got it? will it be rootable or vanilla JB?

    ps i tried to apply for my forum stuff with same name and email but never received my confirmation email…

      @Fel sending you a new password now 😉

    @Fel : Check your “Spam” folder. Thats where I found my email confirmation.
    This one has 1GB RAM, just like Zopo ZP900. ZOPO will also release JB update in a while. They are good and have been consistent with these things so far.
    @KooL : Its Single SIM.

    looks nice on taobao pics but will wait for some real life experience, i ll check out Haidian ZhongGuanCun markets tomorrow for a look on d real deal, getting a 5 inch as pad-on-d-road as i hate to move contacts between mac and android phone-pad so 5 inch will be my choice before an ipad will ever find its way into my 4 walls

    i guess this lenovo release should help to lower the price of the 1go zp900.

    i see that i am not the only one having trouble to apply a registration for the forum. no confirmation mail received even in spam directory.
    i try the ‘lost password’ trick but no mal either.
    and finally i can’t create another account because the email or login is already used.

    Let me know how good the phone is. I won’t be able to take a closer look till the weekend. If it’s good enough then I might buy it instead of the Z900.

    hm i see the phone is on 360buy and round 2188RMB
    in regards of battery, arent the new chips suppose to be more energy efficient?
    I used a M9 for way too long (now only functioning as a fancy door stoper) and got used to the usual morning and evening “refill” a lot has to do with the software side. Meizu did a great job in delivering USP for additional batteries as their battery management was…lets use the word adventurous… one of their 2.3 had way better bat life then the new 4.0.1 and flyme 1.1

    going to sell at US360
    although fastcardtech.com also at the same price but they do not accept paypal more than us300
    paying by paypal i think should be quite safe.
    i think does not have play store, hope somebody will solve this
