They'll be available in certain markets starting June 2014

Lenovo is placing its focus on battery life and other performance updates with its next generation of Android-powered S-series smartphones, which were unveiled at the 2014 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week.

Lenovo introduced the S860, S850 and S660 smartphones, which aim to please an array of customers who appreciate fashionable, long-lasting and even affordable devices. 

The S860 places strong emphasis on battery life, claiming to offer all-day, uninterrupted usage. Lenovo even said that users can charge their other devices with it by using the included micro USB cable. Lenovo didn't say exactly what the battery capacity is. 

Lenovo added that the S860 also features a 5.3-inch HD screen, a brushed metal exterior, quad-core computing, 2GB of RAM and standby time of up to 40 days and talk time of up to 24 hours on 3G connections.

The S860 will run $349 and hit certain markets starting June 2014.

The S850 may not be the right choice for battery-draining S860 users, but if a fashionable phone is your thing, check this one out. The S850 has a thin and lightweight all-glass exterior that comes in either pink or white.

It also has a 5-inch screen with an MTK quad core processor, a 13 MP rear-facing camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. 

The fashionable S850 will start at $269 and become available in certain markets starting June 2014 as well. 


S850

As for the S660, budget-conscious users who don't want to sacrifice performance are the main target audience. It's a 4.7-inch device with a brushed metal design, expandable storage (up to 32GB with microSD cards) and all-day lasting battery life. The scratch and fingerprint-resistant back cover makes life a little easier too. 


S660

The S660 comes in at the lowest price at $229, and will be available in the same time period as the other two (June 2014).

True, that's a better deal. For the record, I'm not saying there aren't better buys, just that these handsets -- particularly the $249 USD one -- aren't at wholly unreasonable prices, as TS seemed to suggest.
