Lenovo readies a 6.8-inch phablet
Lenovo is preparing to launch a 6.8-inch phablet. In our oppinion, the device’s screen size puts it rather in the tablet category, but apparently voice communications will be one of PB1-770N’s (as it is known internally at Lenovo) core features, hence it’s being categorized as a phablet.
The PB1-770N has just passed certification at the Chinese regulator, TENAA. It will be powered by an unspecified, 1.5 GHz, octa-core processor supported by 2 GB of RAM. It will come with 32 GB of built-in storage space expandable via micro-SD cards of up to 64 GB capacity.
The new phablet will feature a FullHD resolution display with 324 ppi density, a 13 MP primary camera with up to 1080p video recording capability and a 5 MP front snapper. The device’s measurements are 186.6 x 96.6 x 7.7 mm at 230 g of weight. Apparently Lenovo focused on making as thin a device as possible which resulted in not so impressive battery capacity of 3500 mAh. Other features include: dual-SIM support, LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and a micro-USB 2.0 port for charging.
Lenovo PB1-770N (although we really hope its gets a more appealing name before launch) should be made official in the next several weeks. Naturally, pricing and availability remain unknown at this point.
