lenovo s860 mwc2014 640x426When it comes to Windows Phone brands, Lenovo is probably not a company you would think of. Sure the company makes Windows-based products like laptops and tablets, but when it comes to smartphones, they tend to favor Android.

That being said, it seems that Lenovo might be interested in attempting to break into the Windows Phone market with a smartphone of their own, according to reports from WP7Forum.ru. The reports are claiming that Lenovo will be launching their first Windows Phone handset around April which is following the announcement of Windows Phone 8.1.

The full specs of the handset and its details remain unknown for now. However the rumors claim that the device will be a mid-ranged affair that could cost around $420, which is admittedly pretty expensive given that Nokia’s smartphone lineup does consist of more affordable products.

Then again we suppose Nokia has the scale when it comes to building Windows Phone handsets, so perhaps that’s how they manage to keep things affordable. Apparently Lenovo would have released the handset earlier, but apparently they decided to wait until WP8.1 to release it, which we guess is a good thing.

Other features of the phone includes a possible Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 or 600 processor and it could pack a 4.5-5-inch display. Some possible names include the Lenovo Aupres or the Lenovo Snoopy. Either way we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled for more info, so check back with us at a later date for the details.
