After last month’s launch of the Lenovo Z5, Lenovo K5 Note, and Lenovo A5, the Chinese smartphone maker was not expected to be releasing new smartphones anytime soon. However, a new unknown mobile from the manufacturer has recently passed TENAA certification in China. This could very likely result in a new Lenovo smartphone making its way to market before the end of this year. This same smartphone was also spotted on Geekbench and 3C certification sites a few days ago which give us some idea of what we can expect from this device.
Lenovo L38031 spotted on TENAA
A new Lenovo smartphone with the model number L38031 has passed TENAA certification. Unfortunately, the certification listing does not reveal any useful detail regarding the phone’s specifications. All we can see here is that the phone will support 4G networks and offer dual-Sim card support. It is also too early to speculate the name of this device as we were unaware Lenovo was even planning on releasing a new phone.
Lenovo L38031 Previously Spotted on Geekbench, 3C
The folks over at 91mobiles spotted the aforementioned smartphone on Geekbench and 3C certification sites a few days ago. These listings reveal that the upcoming Lenovo Smartphone would be powered by a MediaTek 6765 mobile chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM. Geekbench gave this setup a score of 823 points in single-core performance, while the multicore-test earned it 2397 points. These listings also confirm that this phone would be running Android 8.1 Oreo by default.
Lenovo L38031: Expected Specifications
The new information that has come to light does not give us a lot to go on. As far as we can tell, the Lenovo L38031 is going to be a budget or entry-level smartphone with a price and specification list to match. If current trends are any indication, there is a good chance this phone could feature a notched screen. We know that the phone is being powered by a MediaTek 6765 and offered 4GB of RAM. 4GB RAM + 64GB storage combos have become increasingly popular. However, 32GB of storage with this amount of RAM is not unheard of. Lenovo could also offer a lower RAM variant to keep the price down further.
A dual camera at the back is also a likely feature to look out for. Only time will tell if the second sensor will be any useful or end up becoming another gimmick. Lastly, the phone should offer a full day’s worth of use with a battery measuring in the 3000mAh range. And as for price, we expect the phone to cost anywhere in the Rs.10,000 range and not above Rs.15,000.
