With remarkable success in PC and laptop industry, Lenovo now seems to be targeting growth in the Smartphone segment in India. We have all witnessed and experienced Lenovo’s laptops and All-in-One Desktop PCs which have great demand in the Indian market. And the company is currently focused on garnering consumer attention with their appealingly designed larger screen Android phones. The company has introduced S890 which is a successor to S880 that was launched earlier this year.

The S890 has a 5-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen with a display resolution of 540 x 960 pixels at 220 PPI which is undeniably more than the screen resolution and pixel density of Samsung Galaxy Grand which comes in the same screen size. As far as the phone’s built is concerned, the design is quite similar to the S880 model with the notable difference being that S890 sports a slimmer bezel as compared to S880.

Furthermore, this device is running Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1. Along with dual-core 1.2GHz processor, it has 1GB RAM and comes with 4GB internal memory and can support up to 32GB flash memory through the external MicroSD card. Have a look at the device specifications below:
