Lenovo S660 is Nearly Similar to S650, But Has Higher Battery Capacity

The dual-SIM S660 is one of the newest S series smartphones which Lenovo revealed at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in Barcelona. Similar to the preceding S650, the S660 comes with a 4.7-inch touchscreen (540 x 960 resolution), 8GB internal storage, and 1GB RAM. Both the S660 and the S650 run on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and feature an 8-megapixel main autofocus camera with LED flash and a secondary VGA camera. 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n are among the wireless connectivity options available on the S660.

Powering the S660 and the S650 are two closely-related quad-core chips from MediaTek. The S660 has the MT6582M, whereas the older S650 uses the MT6582. Although both processors are clocked at 1.3GHz, the MT6582M comes with a Mali-400 MP2 GPU (416MHz), which is clocked slower than the version of the Mali-400 MP2 GPU (500MHz) on the MT6582 chip. We deem that this should not be a very big deal, taking into account the software updates that Lenovo may implement on the S660, which will be released along with the handsets from other brands running on Android 4.4 (KitKat).

Lenovo claims that the S660 can deliver up to 23 hours of battery life, thanks to its use of a 3000mAh lithium polymer module (the S650 has 2000mAh). Since the S660 is yet to be released in the middle of the year, its local SRP is not yet available. But just to give you an idea of its possible price, the S650 currently sells for PhP 9,999.
