The Xiaomi Redmi 3 is without a doubt one of the best value for money Android devices in the market now, but Lenovo also has an ace up its sleeves. Enter the Lemon 3, a 699 Chinese yuan (about RM465) smartphone with very respectable specifications. The Redmi 3 has a tough competitor now.
Just like the Xiaomi Redmi 3, the Lenovo Lemon 3 has an all-metal body and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor under its hood, which is paired with 2GB of RAM. The Lemon 3 also features 16GB of internal storage – which can be further expanded with a microSD card – and a modest 2750mAh battery.
While the Lemon 3’s battery capacity might not be as generous as the Redmi 3’s whopping 4,100mAh battery, the former does have a sharper 5.0-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display; the latter only has a 720p panel of the same size. Rounding out the specifications of the Lemon 3 include a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter, two rear-firing speakers, LTE connectivity, and dual-SIM support.
For now, the Lenovo Lemon 3 is only available in China with no word on when – or if – it will be sold anywhere outside of the country. If it does make its to way Malaysia in the future, the Lemon 3 could very well be one of the most popular budget-friendly smartphones here.
