Now Lenovo seems to be all set for taking the competition head-on as the company has launched its Lenovo S898T are an even more competitive price of $126.

The Lenovo S898T hosts some spectacular feature like a 5.3” 720 HD LTPS display along with OGS. The device clocks at 1.4GHz with a octa-core MediaTek processor and an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean running on-board. The device comes with a 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing camera and different connectivity options like 3G, Bluettoth, GPS, Wi-FI and measures only 7.9mm in thickness.


There is still no information available for the battery life of the device but looking to its 7.9mm body, it can have a greater than 3,200mAh capacity. The Lenovo S898T will be launched in two versions where one will be having a 1GB RAM and 8GB built-in storage which will be priced as nearly 788 yuan or $126 while the other will have a 2GB RAM and 16GB storage priced at 988 yuan or $158.
