We’ve already seen the S850 smartphone, Yoga Tablet 10 HD+, and DOit suite of apps from Lenovo. And left is another pair of smartphones, more for the S-Series of devices — the S860 and S660. While there are some key differences between these two devices, they both sport a similar appearance with the brushed metal design.
The S860 standout feature is a promised “all-day power” and the S660 is touted as being an “all-round high performance all-rounder.” The promise for the S860 is up to 43 hours of talk time and up to 40 days on standby. Keeping with the Lenovo S860, this one sports a 5.3-inch (1280 x 720) IPS display, and is powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz processor with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.

Other highlights of the S860 include a thickness of 10.3mm, a 1.6MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear-facing camera, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The S860 also has USB on-the-go, which means you can use the battery to power up other devices using the included microUSB cord.
The S660 shares some common specs including the processor, rear-facing camera, and version of Android. Both handsets also have coverage for HSPA+ 21Mbps(DL), 5.76Mbps (UL) and EDGE. Shifting over to the S660 specific features and you’ll find a thickness of 9.95mm, a microSD card slot (with 32GB card support), a 0.3MP front-facing camera, and a 4.7-inch qHD (960 x 540) IPS display.
As part of the “all-round high performance all-rounder” promise of the S660 — we also find the following “three key features for value seekers.” To that point, Lenovo has said the S660 offers “a striking brushed metal design, long battery life for all-day usage and a wallet-friendly price.”
