Lenovo Lemon 3 announced with Snapdragon 616 CPU, metal body

Lenovo has announced a new mid-range smartphone, the oddly named Lemon 3. This isn’t the same Motorola-made Lemon X that was rumored last year, but an unassuming mid-range device with specs that are rather similar to the Xiaomi Redmi 3 launched earlier this week. This includes the Snapdragon 616 chip, which is a slightly revised version of the octa-core Snapdragon 615 that was seen on a few mid-range smartphones last year.

The Lemon 3 has a 5-inch Full HD display, the Snapdragon 616 with four cores clocked at 1.5GHz and four clocked at 1.2GHz), 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a microSD slot, 16GB of internal storage, dual SIM slots, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 2,750 mAh battery. The hardware is packed inside a metal body, and the phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. The Lemon 3 comes with stereo speakers at the back, with support for Waves MaxxAudio and Dolby Audio.

The Lenovo Lemon 3 will be offered in gold and silver colors for 699 Yuan. That’s roughly $106, making it as impressive a price as the Redmi 3’s, which Lenovo’s new phone is bound to compete with when it launches in China next week through the company’s official store.
