Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 official, battles Xiaomi in China

Lenovo released a promotional poster that confirms the Golden Warrior S8 — a 5.3-inch dual-SIM octa-core phablet with an aircraft-grade aluminum frame body. The S8 goes head-on with Xiaomi’s $130 Redmi Note with its $126 (approx. Php5,700) price tag.


Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 (S898t+) specs:


5.3-inch Sharp LTPS display @ 1280 x 720 pixels with OGS technology and Gorilla 3 glass
1.4GHz MediaTek octa-core processor
8GB storage (expandable via microSD)
12MP rear and 5MP front cameras
147 x 76.7 x 7.9mm
140 grams
Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

As of now the Golden Warrior S8 is reported to be a device of China Mobile and is compatible with the TD-SCDMA network of the carrier, but who knows as it might make its way to other countries including Philippines in the upcoming months.

Also, reports say there are possibilities of Lenovo releasing different variants of the S8. One variant could possibly be a WCDMA model if Xiaomi also comes up with it for its Redmi Note. Seems like Lenovo wouldn’t let Xiaomi get all the attention.

    Ganyan dapat ginawa ng Lenovo from the very start, ngayon lang kumilos, yung flagship phone nila, huli na naman sa tren,tsk tsk, puro palpak sila pagdating sa flagship.

    They need to concentrate na lang sa low-mid tier segment tulad nito…kasi sa high-end, BUTATA sila ng SAMSUNG, LG at SONY

    As long as the name is Golden Warrior, I don’t mind buying it. Ang angas ng pangalan. The Lenovo Golden Warrior.

    Expect this to be 15k-18k pesos once it hits our stores. Ganyan din ang presyo ng mga tinda ng starmobile, cm, myphone, o+ etc kapag binili nila mula china pero pagdating dito mahal na…
