Lenovo to out $130 Golden Warrior S8 octa-core smartphone

Promo shots of the upcoming Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 smartphone have emerged out of China, and what's more impressive than its octa-core MediaTek chipset is its alleged price of just $130.

Even for the typically low-overhead Chinese manufacturers, it's quite a low price to pay for a Gorilla Glass 3-covered 5.3" display of 720p display, 16GB of expandable memory, 2GB of RAM, 13MP/5MP camera combo, and 2,000mAh battery. By the looks of it, it even has dual-SIM support.

Furthermore, the 1.4GHz MediaTek octa-core processor inside the Golden Warrior is of the company's recent "true octa-core" outing - the first of its kind that runs all eight cores simultaneously, rather than just four at a time.

Perhaps the only ding on the device is that it runs a somewhat dated Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, but if the incredible price turns out to be true, it becomes a relative non-factor. Unfortunately, it's unlikely the Golden Warrior S8 will see life outside of China, but here's hoping Lenovo will release a capable low-cost variant for the Western market, should it prove successful at home.
