Lenovo S860, S850 and S660 Android phones unveiled

Lenovo unveils new phones at MWC

Lenovo unveiled three new phones in Barcelona — Lenovo S860, S850 and S660 — none of which we would describe as super-phone. Instead this trio is targeting mid-end of the market. All of them come with dual-SIM capability, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 3G + Wi-Fi connectivity, and should start selling from June of this year. Here’s more about each of the three models:

Chances are none of these three will ever “make it” to the West. Instead, Lenovo will likely focus on its own backyard and few emerging markets…
