This week Xiaomi launched a $106 smartphone called the Redmi 3, which features a big battery, an HD display, and an octa-core CPU. Now Lenovo has launched a smartphone called the Lemon 3 which has the same price tag, the same CPU, a higher-resolution display, and a smaller (but still pretty big) battery).
The Lenovo Lemon 3 features a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 2750 mAh battery.
It features a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera, dual micro SIM card slots, and a microSD card reader.
Clearly, Xiaomi isn’t the only Chinese company that knows how to offer a low-cost phone with decent specs. Both the Redmi 3 and Lemon 3 supports WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 4G LTE.
Unfortunately there’s something else the phones have in common: they’re both only available in China for now.
