Rumour: Lenovo could possibly bring their phones to more markets including Australia

Rumour: Lenovo could possibly bring their phones to more markets including Australia

Lenovo first entered the smartphone market back in 2012, but it’s been a fairly limited release with the majority of their phones released in Asia.

Last night Lenovo posted a picture of the Lenovo Vibe X smartphone to a number of their social media channels[Read More...]
