Lenovo Offers Budget Phablet In Time For Holidays

Lenovo definitely isn’t shying away from the competition when it comes to bang-for-your-buck smartphones. They just announced the Lenovo A850, a 5.5-inch phablet running on a quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. It’s a nice big slab of sexy priced competitively that will definitely give even local brands a run for their money. It might be a little more expensive than the budget phablets offered by other brands but Lenovo has the advantage of stronger and more reliable branding.

Here’s a quick look at the specifications of the A850:

Lenovo A850 Spec Sheet

  • 1.3GHz MTK6582M Quad-core Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Storage, Expandable up to 32GB via microSD card
  • 5.5-inches IPS Capacitive Touch Screen, qHD Resolution
  • 5.0-megapixels primary camera with LED Flash and Auto Focus
  • VGA secondary camera
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • 3G, HSPA+, WiFi, WiFi Hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS/aGPS
  • Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2
  • 2,250mAh Battery

Actually if you take a look at the specifications it’s not bad at all! It’s very competitive and it’s actually cheaper than some of the phablets being offered by local brands (Starmobile Diamond V7 is still priced more than Php12,000). Our only concern really is the display quality since it’s just qHD. If they made this HD this would instantly get our stamp of approval.

Anyway, we’ll ask Lenovo if we can borrow a review unit. šŸ™‚
