Like last year, Lenovo has a strong Android lineup here at CES. Lenovo is kicking things off by unveiling two new Android smartphones and a unique flash accessory for those who can’t seem to take enough selfies.

Color options will include Pearl White, Onyx Black and Lava Red. At launch, the Lenovo P90 will run on Android 4.4, but the company does plan to update the software to Android 5.0 sometime in the spring.
