Lenovo’s Golden Warrior A8 octa core phone costs just $128

The Lenovo Golden Warrior A8 is the second phone in the weirdly-named series and the company has decided to give it an official launch. Hardware-wise, the handset is quite similar to the previous model which was spotted back in April, but the overall design has been modified.

The $200 Warrior S8 was spotted flaunting a bright gold frame and a rear panel with a lighter hue. But the company has taken a different approach for the Lenovo Golden Warrior A8. Based on the images provided by CNMO, the recently announced one features the same camera placement, but the rear panel now has a faux leather-like design with a stitch patters on the sides just like in the Galaxy Note 3.
