Chinese mobile phone maker Lenovo has made official at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas a new handset powered by an Intel processor, namely the IdeaPhone K900.The new device sports the new Clover Trail+ processor from Intel, which features two cores clocked in at 2GHz each.
Furthermore, it will arrive on shelves with a 5.5-inch touchscreen display that can deliver a 1080p full HD resolution, making it one of the largest smartphones in the world.
Lenovo also packed the new handset with a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with dual flash and full HD video recording capabilities, as well as with a front camera that sports an 88-degree super wide viewing angle.
The new IdeaPhone K900 comes with 2GB of RAM inside, as well as with 16GB of internal memory, which is complemented by a microSD memory card slot for storage expansion purposes.
With Gorilla Glass 2 coating on top of the screen, the new mobile phone is only 6.9 mm thin and sports an outer case made of stainless steel alloy and polycarbonate. IdeaPhone K900 runs under Google’s Android Jelly Bean.
“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.”
Lenovo plans on selling the new handset in multiple color versions, including Copper, Silver, and Grey, and will bring it to shelves in China in April, with other markets to receive it soon after. Info on its pricing will be unveiled at a later date.
