Lenovo’s 5.3-inch S920 smartphone available for pre-order in China

Back on March 8, we first saw the Lenovo S920 in some leaked pictures showing off a handset with a design very similar to the HTC One. Although nothing was official at the time, it didn’t take long for Lenovo to launch the handset, which is now available for purchase in China. We’ve got an official picture of the S920 after the jump.

As you can see from the Chinese advertisement above, the Lenovo S920 looks nearly identical to the HTC One X from the back, so much so that the logo is the biggest distinguishing factor. The uniqueness comes into play when you look at the front of the handset, however, which doesn’t look like the One X. This ultra-sized phablet smartphone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

As far as specs go, inside the Lenovo S920 users will find a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek processor and 1GB of RAM, as well as 16GB of internal storage space. There’s a microSD card for storage expansion, as well as a 2-megapixel front camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera. The screen is its most alluring feature, however, at an atypical 5.3-inches with a 720p HD resolution.

Powering a screen of the size will take a decent amount of juice, which is supplied by the S920’s 2250mAh battery, a disappointing capacity that will likely leave users recharging more often than they like. As for the body of the smartphone, it has smooth rounded edges and measures in at just under 8mm thick. The handset is now up for pre-order in China with an April 8th release date. Price: $350 USD.
