Lenovo Showed Off its Intel-based Smartphone, the IdeaPhone K900
Lenovo proudly showcased its new smartphone at CES 2013, including the Intel Atom-powered IdeaPhone K900. Previous Lenovo smartphones were all using ARM chips and designated only for Chinese consumers. Consequently, it’s not clear whether the K900 will also arrive to the US market.
However, rumors say that the K900 will also hit India, Rusia, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines. The K900 comes with a sleek physical design and huge 5.5” 1080p IPS display. It will be among the first to be powered by Intel’s latest 2 GHz dual-core Atom CPU. There are also 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 2Mp front-facing snapper and 13Mp rear camera with dual LED flash.
Measuring at just 6.9mm thin and weighing only 5.7 ounces, user should be able to put the phone into their jacket pocket. Those who were able to hold the phone said that the K900 is surprisingly lightweight given the monstrous display and it appears to be solidly, well-built.
