Lenovo Announces Their First Windows Phone, Coming Soon Exclusively For Japan

With Windows Phone steadily declining in the mobile market, Lenovo has unexpectedly just announced their first Windows Phone, the 503LV. The device, made in partnership with Softbank, is targeted at Japanese business users with mid-range specs and full support for Continuum.

The 503LV will use a metal and glass build which will offer a “feeling of luxury” as Lenovo’s press release states. The full specifications list follows.

  • 5″ 720p LCD Display
  • Snapdragon 617 Processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB Storage (w/ microSD card slot)
  • 8MP Rear Camera
  • 5MP Front Camera
  • 2,250 mAh Battery

Lenovo is set to sell the 503LV starting this October although pricing is unclear on this mid-range device. With other new Windows Phone devices debuting over the past few months including HP’s Elite X3, is it possible that the platform could be making a comeback? Probably not, but with their sights set on business users, Lenovo may see some success with this new device.
