We’re not sure you remember when last year Yang Tianyang — Microsoft’s Communications Sector Director for the Greater China Region — said Microsoft was in talks with manufacturers like Lenovo, ZTE and Huawei with regards to Windows Phone 7 handset production. ZTE launched the Tania and we’re probably looking at Lenovo’s shot at the Windows Phone game.
No, you’re not looking at the Samsung Focus and not even at the Google Nexus S. This is allegedly the Lenovo S2, the company’s first take at Windows Phone. If we could see the required Windows buttons we’d be sold but since we can’t, we’ll just leave it in the “R” category.
Anyways, the screen shows what appears to be Windows Phone Mango and wishful thinking makes us believe the small hump on the right bottom side (first and last pic) is a dedicated camera button. We tampered a bit with the last picture to reveal what was on the screen and we could see a Windows button (and no other) plus something far from the default Camera application. At least there’s a front-facer there!
