Lenovo TV commercial highlights K900, S820; India launch on June 5 (Update)

Note: Check update below

After two false alarms by NDTV Gadgets, we finally might be nearing the India launch of Lenovo Ideaphone K900 smartphone – world’s first smartphone with Intel Clover Trail+ dual-core processor. Lenovo India is broadcasting a new commercial on various TV channels in the country these days. This commercial, unlike other ads from Lenovo, packs some interesting details.

The Chinese computer giant is actually showcasing (still to be released in the country) K900 and S820 smartphones in this TV commercial (TVC), suggesting that we might see the launch of both the Android phones in the Indian market very soon.

This is not new for the companies to start ad campaigns for their products even before the official launch – like Panasonic did with P51 recently; the TVC for P51 was running on-air days before the announcement.

Check out the TVC below (S820 first appears at 0:35 mark, while K900 comes at 0:38 mark)

To remind you, Lenovo K900 went on sale in China recently and has also been announced Philippines and Malaysia. The smartphone packs a 2GHz Atom Z2580 dual-core processor, 5.5-inch full HD display with Gorilla Glass 2, 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera, and 16GB of internal storage.

On the other hand, Lenovo S820, which has just been introduced in China, is being targeted to female users and is a successor to the company’s already available S720.  The S820 features 4.7-inch 720p HD IPS display, 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. The S820 also comes with dual-SIM support, 2000 mAh battery, and 4GB of internal storage with microSD card slot.

We are actively tracking the story and will let know guys know as soon as we hear anything concrete about the actual launch date of both the phones.

Update: We have just learnt that Lenovo is organizing a press event in Delhi on June 5, where it will be launching six new Android smartphones for the Indian market including K900 and S820. Details about other four smartphones are not clear at this moment.

    Check this up, buddy… WIKI says ” Globalnaya navigatsionnaya sputnikovaya sistema or Global Navigation Satellite System, is a radio-based satellite navigation system operated by the Russian Aerospace Defence Forces. It both complements and provides an alternative to the United States’ Global Positioning System (GPS) and is the only alternative navigational system in operation with global coverage and of comparable precision.”. Clearly AN Alternative/Optional..!!

      And anyways, the news is about India launch and we do not have this alternative system here. So we do not need it. U in Russia just might need this and hence this mobile may not be suitable for the ppl in Russia.

    if i were u i would not rush in to buy this just bcoz of its performance there are some more things u should consider:
    1. only 16gb internal (read 12.5gb user available), no sd slot
    2. bluetooth outdated (v2.0 and not v4.0)
    3. no nfc
    4. no GLONASS (its a little thingy that makes ur gps lock better)
    5. no virtual compass
    6. if u are into modding ur phone, very rare possiblity of getting root (read somewhere someone in china succeded in getting root but i have not checked yet)
    7. no usb otg support or mhl

    p.s: so yeah there are reasons why this beast is a midranger……….

      Except 1st, not all ppl require remaining features… so its still a BEST BUY..!

        seriously ?????? 4&5 are very important……. without virtual compass u may as well say goodbye to navigation

        and since memory is so low, usb otg should have been there

          AMol

          Why can’t u download Virtual Compass from PlayStore? and GLONASS is just a Russian Version of GPS. We here in India do not need this and GPS is more than sufficient. More over GLONASSS uses only 24 Active satellites, where as GPS uses 31 Active Satellites. Hence GLONASS has very limited user base. GPS is being used by million people. So not having those ‘alternative’ features, do not make this device any less.

            woah!!!!!!!!!!
            u just cant download compass and GLONASS is not an alternate but an addition to gps.
            with GLONASS u can lock upto 45-50 sats (that is what shows up in my hox+)

    Good My son has seen an advertisement of K900, and he told me as soon as I came back then we saw the commercial at youtube, amazing phone I am just waiting for this, they should price this at less than or upto 25K, then this is the best phone, I admire Oppo Find 5 which is my next choice and then Zopo ZP 980 32GB. Just can’t wait any long launch it soon……………………

    the antutu benchmark data really looks good (better than S4), and i will consider buying this if Note 3 is delayed or is launched at a very very high pricepoint. I hope lenovo keeps the price below 35k

      the price in malaysia is 31k INR equivalent (1699 ringgits)

    Thanks for the update! Lenovo can succeed in India only if they improve their distribution network. I am yet to find atleast one mobile shop in Chennai that sell Lenovo mobiles. They do make better phones than their Chinese counterparts but their marketing in India is sloppy. First, they should make sure their mobiles are easily available. Though they are too late to the party, they can catch up if they keep their performance and price apt for the Indian market something which they should learn from the Panasonic P51 disaster.
