Lenovo K520 passed TENAA certification with FHD+ display and 4 GB RAM

A new Lenovo smartphone dubbed "Lenovo K520" has been spotted on TENAA regulatory in China, signaling that it might land in the near future. It comes out that the smartphone will have a full HD+ display and up to 4 GB RAM. The TENAA images reveal a dual-rear-camera setup, although the listed document suggests a single camera at the back.

The Lenovo K520 is floating around the rumor mill for quite some time. Back in December, the smartphone had stopped by the Geekbench certification site and now it has surfaced on the Chinese regulating authority TENAA, giving away key specs as well as images.

The upcoming smartphone will follow the Lenovo K320t which was launched a couple of months ago. From the look of TENAA images, it seems the Lenovo K520 will imitate the same design language of the Lenovo K320t but will differ in specs.

Design-wise, both the handsets share a metal body, dual-rear cameras, and rear-mounted circular fingerprint scanner. And for a difference, the Lenovo K520 has a smaller display and features a speaker grill on the front as against the rear placement in the Lenovo K320t.

As per the listed specs, the Lenovo K529 packs a 5.65-inch display with FHD+ 2160x1080p resolution. Driving the handset will be a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor mated to 3 GB/4 GB RAM and 32 GB/64 GB internal storage. The storage can be further expanded up to 128 GB via microSD card.

The TENAA document says that the front of the handset has an 8 MP selfie-camera while the rear mounts a single 8 MP camera. However, TENAA images tell a different story as it shows a dual-camera setup with LED flash on the back.

Android 8.0 Oreo handles the software side of things while a 3,000 mAh battery supplies juice to the device. The connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and a micro USB port. It measures 154x73.5x7.8 mm in dimension and weighs 165 grams, slightly heavier than the Lenovo K320t.

So far, there are no details regarding the pricing and availability of the handset. But considering the specs, we might say that it will be slotted into the low mid-range segment. And since it has already cleared TENAA certification it can't be far away from launching.
