Lenovo arrives with ‘S’ series

The S series smart phones launched by Samsung changed the company’s luck. Samsung unveiled its first smartphone Galaxy S in 2010. S is the short form of Smartphone. Later they launched S2, S3 and now the Galaxy S4. Figures say that Samsung has so far sold 16 crore S series phones. Nearly 4 crore people have already bought the Galaxy S4 phone that was launched this October. Following the footsteps of Samsung, now LG, Nokia and Sony have also launched phones named ‘S’. Now Lenovo too joins the circle.

They have named their high-end model range of phones as ‘S range’. Last week in Russia, Lenovo had released two latest models from their S range.
