Lenovo is the latest OEM to integrate the near-bezel-less 18:9 displays in its smartphone models. Apart from the 2:1 aspect ratio display with 1440 x 720 resolution, the K720t features a 1.3 GHz Spreadtrum SoC with either 2GB or 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage. Even if it's an entry level model, the K320t still integrates a dual camera setup and even a fingerprint sensor on the back.

Lenovo is better known for the laptop and PC divisions that were bought from IBM, but the Chinese company recently broke into the smartphone market, mostly with entry-level and mid-range models. Lenovo does not usually stick to the norm, but it looks like the 18:9 display trend caught the company’s eye and 2018 will bring the first budget Lenovo smartphone with 2:1 aspect ratio. The K320t was just announced in China, and it features a 5.7-inch 1440 x 720 18:9 display, although the other specs seem unimpressive.

There are two versions of the K320t, both powered by a quad-core Spreadtrum SC7731 SoC clocked at 1.3 GHz. The difference between the two models is 2 GB versus 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB versus 32 GB of internal storage. The imaging capabilities of the K320t are quite surprising for its price-range. It features an 8 MP sensor on the front and a dual camera setup with 8 MP + 2 MP sensors and LED flash on the back, which also integrates a fingerprint scanner.

As for pricing, Lenovo mentioned that the 3 GB RAM model will be priced at ~$155 and will begin shipping on January 4th, but it is not clear if any of the variants will be released to the Western markets.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
