Amid all this, there are other devices that are relevant but never got much coverage.

One of the companies that showcased its products at the event without much coverage is Lenovo. Lenovo is one of the top 5 Chinese Smartphone manufacturers but the company rarely makes enough noise in the international Smartphone arena to be taken seriously.

The company unveiled three new Android-powered Smartphone on Monday  to help expand it S-series line-up in emerging markets. These Smartphones are the S660, S850, and S860.

It also has 1GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 32GB via a MicroSD card slot. At the back it has an 8 megapixel camera and under the frame sits a 3,000mAh battery.

The S860 has a 5.3-inch IPS LCD screen with 1.3GHz quad core processor. 2GB of RAM and 16GB of non-expandable storage come standard with this device. Like the S660, the S860 also has an 8 Megapixel rear camera with a much larger 4,000mAh battery.

The S850 features a 5-inch display with 1.3GHz quad core processor under the hood. 1GB of RAM and 15 GB internal storage will come standard with this device. A 2,000mAh battery sits under the frame to provide the necessary power.
