Arguably sporting the best name for a smartphone ever, Lenovo's Golden Warrior is ready for its launch and has been given an official date for release in China. Despite its grand name, the Golden Warrior is actually a mid-range device and not a flagship, but that said it looks to be a very good smartphone for its ultra-humble cost. It will arrive in China July 16th.Lenovo's new handset is the latest to arrive from a major brand that combines affordability with solid performance. With devices like the Moto G paving the way, the low end smartphone market is now vibrant and Lenovo's device is arguably the best yet. The Golden Warrior has very respectable specs such as MediaTek?s MT-6592 octa-core processor, a 720p 5-inch screen, 2 GB of storage, and a 13 megapixel camera (5MP on the front). Adding to the mix is Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and expandable storage up to 32GB thanks to a microSD card slot, while also boasting LTE connectivity. When we consider the price of the Golden Warrior we could make an argument for it being the best budget device on the market. The Golden Warrior will cost between $130 and $145 depending on carrier in China, which for the specs it has makes it a bargain. The handset itself is also good looking for a budget device, coming in hues of pink, white, black, silver, and gold. It even boasts a faux leather back plate, a la the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and S5. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to be a handset that finds its way outside of China such is Lenovo's lack of market appeal in the US and Europe. Of course, there are ways to get your hands on the Golden Warrior if you want to import it, and perhaps that may be a deal worth exploring considering its humble price and good specs. source: GSM Arena
