Lenovo is a leading light in all markets when it comes to PC and tablet, but the company only enjoys smartphone success in Asia, which is why it bought Motorola to have more presence in the US and beyond. Still, if there is one Chinese company that can cross into other major markets then it is Lenovo, and a device like the upcoming K920 flagship is the sort of smartphone to get the job done.The device has leaked several times over the last two months and we know plenty about it, including specs and design. Now the launch date has become more concrete after Lenovo's Marketing General Manager, Wang Yan, revealed an image on his personal Weibo account that shows an official press shot for the K920 and confirms the launch date for August 5th. The image also reveals the back of the handset at the camera corner. The Lenovo K920 is the latest high end smartphone from the company and is set to arrive with some very good specs. Early rumours said the device would pack Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 paired with 3GB of RAM, while the screen is likely to be of the 2K Quad HD variety. That core hardware would put the K920 on a par with the LG G3, the current darling of the smartphone world. As can be seen in the image, the Lenovo smartphone will have a 16 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) technology. The rear back casing appears to be constructed from plastic, but Lenovo clearly has something to say about the material as both the back plate and the background for this render are in that same weaved design. Possibly the handset is indeed metal or possibly fabric, but we?ll only know for sure on launch day. It is likely that the K920 will get a China only release initially, but some Lenovo devices have found their way to other markets so we hope the company rolls this handset out globally. source: G For Games
