Vibe Z throws Lenovo into LTE age

LAS VEGAS -- Lenovo announced four new Android smartphones for CES. The Lenovo Vibe Z (hands-on) is its first smartphone to feature LTE...ever. Rightly the company's flagship smartphone, it features a quad-core processor and a 13-megapixel camera.

Lenovo S930, phablet-style

With the S930 (hands-on), Lenovo tackles the midrange phablet market. The body design looks like an overgrown Vibe Z, though its specs take it down a notch.

Removable back cover

Unlike the Vibe Z, a unibody design, you can peel back the S930's cover to add extra storage and swap out the battery.

Lenovo A859

Although part of a different series, the Lenovo A859 (hands-on) features specs that are very similar to those of the S930 and S650, like the quad-core MediaTek processor and an 8-megapixel camera.

Back cover

The A859 doesn't share the same aesthetics as the S-series phones. Instead, it features a glossy white back cover.

I Got an Early Look at Intel's Glass Packaging Tech for Faster Chips
Rahul Manepalli, right, Intel's module engineering leader, shows a glass substrate panel before it's sliced into the small rectangles that will be bonded to the undersides of hundreds of test processors. The technology, shown here at Intel's CH8 facility in Chandler, Arizona, stands to improve performance and power consumption of advanced processors arriving later this decade. Glass substrates should permit physically larger processors comprised of several small "chiplets" for AI and data center work, but Intel expects they'll trickle down to PCs, too.
