Intel powered smartphones have been rather few in number, but the 2013 CES saw the first, true Intel flagship smartphone come from Lenovo. The K900 is lenovo’s new flagship smartphone, which has become the first smartphone to use Intel’s latest generation of Atom smartphone processor, in just the same way last year’s Lenovo K800 was the first smartphone to use Intel’s Medfield processor.
Though Lenovo has not specified the code name of the Intel Atom chip inside, it is understood to be the Clover Trail+, an Atom chip that has been clocked at 2GHz, assumes Engadget. The K900’s impressive feature set is not limited to the latest Intel chip though. Lenovo’s flagship smartphone packs quite a punch with its specifications, which is also the first ‘phablet’ to be powered by Intel Atom.
Specifications are as follows:
- Display: 5.5 inch screen with Full HD IPS display, Gorilla Glass 2
- Internal hardware: Intel Atom, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage
- Camera: 13 megapixel unit with F1.8 focal length lens. Front camera with the widest available viewing angle of 88 degrees.
- Lenovo claims the K900 is the thinnest phone in its class at 6.9mm. The K900 has a solid unibody design built from a stainless steel alloy and polycarbonate, which manages to keep the weight down to just 162g.
China will be the first to get the stunning looking Lenovo K900, where it will be launched by April. Pricing details have not been announced yet.
“With the K900, our team has broken down the key functions of the smartphone and redesigned them from the ground up,” said Liu Jun, president, Mobile Internet Digital Home, and senior vice president, Lenovo. “Rather than focus on specifications that look good on a datasheet, we’ve zeroed in on what consumers want and proved that for smartphone users, top performance doesn’t require a thick profile. The K900 is a game-changer that looks as good as it performs.”
“Intel is pleased to provide the processor that will power Lenovo’s latest flagship, K900. This innovative smartphone exemplifies the close cooperation between Lenovo and Intel. We believe that consumers will appreciate Lenovo’s cutting-edge design and the overall responsiveness provided by Intel’s next generation processor.” – Hermann Eul, General Manager, Mobile and Communications Group, Intel
