Lenovo LePhone gets unboxed, has AMOLED screen and gesture area

The Lenovo LePhone, a rather attractive Android phone that's been available in China, just got an unboxing which revealed some new interesting features. First, it looks like the LePhone is packing a 3.7-inch AMOLED screen--which is quickly becoming the standard high-end Android screen these days. And second, the LePhone has a 'gesture area' similar to the Palm Pre, a hardware feature that we've been itching to see in an Android device. Score.

Reports are saying that the LePhone is pretty snappy even though it runs a heavily customized version of Android in China. If we ever get this LePhone in the US, vanilla Android is good enough for us! [sooyuu via engadget]
