Is Lenovo really intending to crank-out 60-odd smartphones before the end of the year? We continue to wonder if that boast from earlier this month is the stuff of bravado or maybe just a poor translation, but whatever the company’s goals are over the next several months, its more immediate future looks like it will involve the arrival of a quad HD phablet, as a Lenovo exec teases the launch of the K920 in just a couple weeks.
We first talked about this model as Lenovo’s Vibe Z2 Pro, though recent leaks have been going with the more numerical designation. Whatever it’s called, the hardware we’ve seen consists of a six-inch 2560 x 1440 display, 16MP camera with optical stabilization, Snapdragon 801 SoC (presumably an AC based on the clock speed), and a king-sized 4,000 mAh battery. All that should live in a body just 7.7mm thick.
According to this teaser, posted to Chinese social sites, Lenovo intends to introduce the phone on Tuesday, August 5. It may not refer to the model by name, but the image it provides is a solid match to the hands-on pics we’ve seen of the K920 in action.
That leaves the big questions as what Lenovo intends to charge for this phablet, as well as where it intends to market it; China’s a given, but a phone like this is liable to attract interest in other markets, as well. It remains to be seen just how willing Lenovo might be to make it available internationally.
