“Gitex Shopper is one of the most anticipated consumer electronics shows in the region and we are excited to be offering the Lenovo S60 smartphone exclusively at Gitex Spring Shopper 2015, making it the latest addition to our extensive smartphone portfolio in the region. With this launch, we are looking to further build upon our strong position as the No.3 smartphone vendor in the UAE and stay on track to achieve our eventual goal of becoming the No.1 PC+ vendor in the region,” said Sharay Shams, Smartphone Business Head for Lenovo Gulf, Egypt and Levant.

The dual-sim Lenovo S60 smartphone is designed for users looking to enjoy the fun side of snapping, sharing and socializing. Equipped with a high gloss ergonomic rear cover as well as a rounded shape that is comfortable to hold, the smartphone is designed for those craving both flair and substance.

The light (128 gram) 4G LTE smartphone comes with a 13MP rear camera, 5MP f2.2 wide-angle selfie camera, 2GB RAM, 8GB ROM and 32GB of expandable storage for a large library.

Add in a superb Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2GHz 64-bit Quad Core processor powering the Lenovo S60, and it is primed for unlimited fun.

Sharing, securing and managing content is also a breeze with Lenovo’s built-in suite of DOit apps.
