Guess who's back, back again

Lenovo's back, tell a friend

Guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back

In China. They're back in China.

Lenovo hasn't released a new phone in year, but they just unleashed three new handsets on the China market. The S5 is their main flagship, while the K5 and K5 Play are lower-end budget phones, seemingly aimed at the younger market.

Physically, they resemble everything that's come before, namely the iPhone 6. The Lenovo S5 is rocking a 5.7-inch screen with an 18:9 aspect ration and a 2160 x 1080 resolution. On the inside, it's got a Snapdragon 625 chip, 3,000 mAh battery, and you can choose between 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB of internal storage. The back of the phone, which is metal, houses dual 13-megapixel rear cameras and the front's got a 16-megapixel selfie cam. It runs Android 8.0 and starts at 999 CNY ($157.74) and tops out at 1499 CNY ($236.69).

Xiaomi recently launched their Redmi Note 5, a phone that Lenovo is likely aiming for with their S5.

The K5 and K5 Play both have 5.-7-inch screens as well, but those resolutions are only 1440 x 720. The K5 has 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras on the back, while the K5 Play has a 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel camera. The K5 and K5 Plus are powered by a MediaTek MT6750 chip and Snapdragon 450 chip, respectively, and the former runs Android Oreo while the latter runs Android Nougat.

The K5 costs 899 CNY ($141.93) and the K5 Play costs 699 CNY ($110.35). All three phones are now available for preorder in China.
