The Lenovo K900 Android smartphone has been unveiled at CES 2013, and it comes with a relatively unusual Intel processor.
Lenovo might not be a known name in the smartphone field, but its reputation for building high-quality laptops means that the Lenovo K900 deserves some attention – especially when it comes packed with such stand-out components.
At the Consumer Electronics Show currently taking place in Las Vegas, Lenovo unveiled its new super-slim large-screen flagship phone with the following specs.
Lenovo K900 Specs
The Lenovo K900 is a super-slim 6.9mm-thick phone, and it weighs in at 162g. That might seem a little chunky, but it’s really not for this class of device.
Lenovo’s established attention to build quality is in evidence here, as the Lenovo K900 is made of “a composite of stainless steel alloy and polycarbonate in a Unibody mold.”
The Lenovo K900 sports 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, which is the kind of giant HD screen we’ve been seeing a lot of at CES this year in the likes of the ZTE Grand S and the Sony Xperia Z. Needless to say, it’s capable of producing a pixel density of around 440ppi
The truly interesting spec, though, is the Lenovo K900’s Intel ‘Atom’ Z580 dual-core processor. It’s a brand new component that signals Intel’s continued intention to crack into the mobile chip market. It will be interesting to see how it performs – especially as Intel hasn’t revealed full specifications for the chip yet.
On the photographic front, the Lenovo K900 will sport a 13-megapixel camera complete with a strong Sony Exmor BSI image sensor and an impressive f/1.8 lens. Lenovo claims that this is “the first smartphone to offer such a wide aperture on its camera.”
Lenovo K900 Release Date and Price
Unfortunately the Lenovo K900 has only been confirmed for release in China thus far, which will happen in April. However, Lenovo claims that “select regional markets” will follow.
No pricing has been announced as yet.
