FASHIONISTAS seeking a ­stylish device to complement their ­personality and help them stay in touch may want to consider Lenovo’s S850 smartphone.

The 5in device features a glass-like exterior and was designed with the needs of youth in mind. Its 13-megapixel autofocus rear camera with flash and front-facing 5-megapixel wide-angle camera enables its owner to capture sharp images, including those much beloved selfies.

Lenovo also offers S850 users the benefit of a collection of premium apps including Shareit, which allows them to send videos and photos to another device with the app without the need for an Internet connection; Syncit for backing up and restoring phone contacts, SMSes and call logs; and Secureit for protecting and speeding up the device.

The device is 141 x 71 x 8.2mm in size and weighs 140g. It is powered by a MediaTek MTK 6582 1.3GHz quad-core processor and has 16GB internal storage. It supports dual micro SIM cards for connecting to two networks, and runs on the latest Android — 4.4 KitKat.

In line with the feminine appeal of the phone, Lenovo has formed a partnership with the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia and plans to contribute RM10 to the organisation’s cause from each sale of the first 1,000 units until Sept 30.

The funds will be channelled towards raising greater awareness on breast cancer amongst the local community.

According to Khoo Hung Chuan, country general manager at Lenovo Technology Sdn Bhd, the ­company chose to support this cause because breast cancer continues to be a pervasive ailment amongst women, with one out of every 20 ­contracting the disease.

The S850 is available in pink, white or dark blue at a retail price of RM729.
