LTE, octa-core enabled Lenovo Golden Warrior A8 goes official in China for $130

The ever-expanding maker from China, Lenovo, have announced the Lenovo Golden Warrior A8, successor to the previously announced Golden Warrior S8.

Like its predecessor, the A8 comes with a seriously high VFM quotient, packing an octa-core CPU, 4G LTE and other goodies but retaining the very sweet $130 price tag. Its only on sale in China for the moment, but neighbouring markets can expect a launch anytime soon.

Besides adding 4G LTE, the A8 also features a faux leather back that’ll remind you of the much more expensive Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet. A 2GB RAM chip handles your multitasking needs, with a 5-inch 720p display taking control of your touch inputs and display. The device will have two radio variants; one for China Mobile, that’ll go for 798 CNY or $130, and the other for China Unicom which will sell for CNY 898 or $144.


  • 5-inch 1280 x 720p display
  • 1.7GHz octa-core MT6592 CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB on-board ROM
  • 13 mega-pixel rear camera with dual LED flash, 5 mega-pixel front facing camera

    Yash..regarding Camera..just 13 mega-pixel would be misleading..there are 13 mp cameras and there are 13 mp cameras.all can not be equal..i m sure lot of your readers would appreciate qualifying remarks like Sensor ..aperture cameras.

    Hey Yash, does this phone have Gorilla glass? And yea like Vijay said, would be nice is you can tell us the Camera aperture, sensor and the like too.

      Hey, the A8 should have Gorilla Glass, but we’ll try and get confirmation on both subjects. Cheers!
