Wow, another PC maker pushing into the smartphone market - and camera market, I guess.
It should be interesting. The S5's camera is notably better than the S3, so we're seeing some evolution even in the mainstream.

Oh, so that's why all the insecure camera-gear fetishists go on and on about "sensor size." No one has made a phone with a large sensor (not even Samsung, since the Galaxy cam can't place outgoing calls).

"Lenovo Group is on a fast track to become a major player in smartphones -- not just in China but also overseas, taking on Samsung Electronics and Apple.

Already the world's largest PC maker by shipments, the Chinese company has made big progress in smartphones. In the second quarter, Lenovo not only became the No. 1 smartphone maker in China, overtaking Samsung, but it was the No. 4 vendor by shipments world-wide, according to research firm IDC. Analysts predict Lenovo could become an even bigger player after it completes its acquisition of Google's Motorola Mobility handset unit, which it agreed to buy for US$2.91 billion earlier this year.

"Although China is still the most important market for our smartphone business, we think we have even more opportunities outside China," Chief Executive Yang Yuanqing said Thursday in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. "

Interesting, and I'd think certainly a more lucrative move than sticking with notebooks and tablets. I already use my smartphone for a lot of things I'd do at the computer just a few years ago. Keep pushing the specs, Lenovo!

I've been a lenovo fan for a while now, I'd like to see their phones get some traction too. My very basic, cheap, entry level thinkpad laptop has been a solid and dependable travel buddy!

With the ultra large 6" 2560x1440 display the images , 4K videos etc. should be easy to view.

No SD slot, on a phone aimed at photography? This seems something of a dubious decision - either provide a big memory capacity if the back can't be easily removed or provide the slot. I like the Galaxy series because I can carry spare batteries and swap easily, not done with iPhone or the LG metal bodies...

I agree, it should have a mSDXC slot for up to 128GB capacity. My two year Verizon contract expires January 13 2015 so by then there might be better choices.
