Lenovo recently launched the S90 “Sisley” and they are not afraid to mention the Apple iPhone 6 as “a source of inspiration”.
The iPhone 6 is probably the best smartphone on the market at the moment. Their brand-new device is not perfect, but in terms of phones, it is probably as far as the industry went until now. There are few devices that can be as attractive as the iPhone 6 and even fewer that can offer similar performances. Like any other great handset, though, the iPhone 6 was bound to be copied by many other producers but we weren’t expecting Lenovo to be one of them.
Yes, Lenovo, the company that just recently became the third largest smartphone producer in the world, the company that offered us the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro and the Yoga Pro 3. They went ahead and just released something almost similar to an Apple product. And we’re not talking here only about the phone itself which looks a lot like the iPhone 6. Even the way in which the phone is pictures is copied.
There is one major difference between the iPhone 6 and the Lenovo S90, though. We’re talking of course about hardware. The Lenovo S90 can be considered at best a mid-range device, with its 5 inch screen supporting a 1280 x 720 resolution, 1 GB of RAM and quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The main camera is a 13 megapixel one and the secondary one has no less than 8 megapixels. This is one of the more interesting aspects of the hardware part of this phone, an aspect which makes it so much more attractive for all the selfie enthusiasts out there.
The phone will have a pretty decent battery of 2300 mAh. The internal storage capacity of this smartphone will be 16 GB and the Android KitKat will come pre-installed. Even the thickness is exactly like the one of the iPhone 6: 6.9 millimeters. The phone was launched in China for the equivalent of 327 dollars.
