The Lenovo A-series is a line of often cost-effective smartphones. A leaker asserts that it will get a new addition soon. This is based on a new Geekbench 5 listing for a device with a heretofore-unknown model number with 4GB of RAM, the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC and Android 10.

The Lenovo L10041 (or A8, so called because it is may be a successor for the low-end A7 removable-battery phone), has emerged in leaks before, having been spotted in reports dating back to July 2020. However, the same device never launched thereafter, having perhaps been held back by the global pandemic. Now, however, it is back in the form of a new tip by @smartvenkat95 that offers more of its possible specs.

The leaker has noticed that the new model number has just popped up again (on September 27, 2020) as a new entry on the Geekbench 5 database. Its results may reveal that the device runs Android 10 powered by the ARM MT6762V/WB (or MediaTek Helio P22) and 4GB of RAM. Another recent leak suggests it has a 4850mAh battery.

They have helped the "Lenovo A8" accrue a single-core score of under 200 and a multi-core score of about 800 on its new benchmark. On the other hand, given its low RAM and aging processor, it may represent a good chance to get nearly up-to-date Android for not a lot. Then again, Lenovo has yet to acknowledge these findings with anything like official launch announcement.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
