Lenovo recently joined the Windows 10 phone club when it announced its first Windows 10 terminal under the code name SoftBank 503LV. The best word to describe this phone is decent: it’s a mid-range phone that will possibly get you to the end of the day, but won’t impress you while getting there.
The SoftBank 503LV sports a 5-inch HD display, an 8MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera, all powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor capable of reaching a maximum clock speed of 1.5GHz. Inside, you’ll find 32GB of internal storage, but you can expand to up to 128GB with a microSD card. The phone supports both 4G LTE and Bluetooth 4.0. It weighs in at 144 grams and has the following dimensions: 71.4 × 142.4 × 7.6mm/2.8 x 5.60 x 0.3 inches. However, one of its weaknesses is its rather limited battery life. A 2250mAh battery may struggle to get you through the day.
The terminal supports Continuum for phones and will be available in late October. Since the phone is positioned at business professionals, it will support many business features such as Skype for Business and the standard Office package, with the latter being installed by default.
No information is currently available about its price but since HP’s Elite X3 powerhouse costs $680, a price of around $500- $600 is a fair estimate.
It’s worth mentioning that SoftBank 503LV’s specs may be subject to change as the terminal is still in the works. The terminal is the result of joint forces between Lenovo Japan and Microsoft Japan, and for the time being it’s exclusive to the Land of the Rising Sun.
