CES 2013 will go down in history as the date when Lenovo finally put their money and launched an Android device actually worth lusting after. While there were phone before its announcement, the K900 5.5-inch 1080 phone still managed to take us by surprise. Intel has been successfully built the products mindset for their costumer, at CES 2013 Intel is ready to enter smartphone area with built Clover Trail and Medfield chipset for mobile devices. Let See What it Has To offer...
Much like how Lenovo's K800 was unveiled as the first Intel Medfield phone last CES, this year the manufacturer pulled another first with the K900, powered by Intel's recently-announced Clover Trail+ platform (likely an Atom Z2580 clocked at 2GHz). For those who missed the Intel keynote, Clover Trail+ is the much improved yet still secretive successor to the relatively quiet Medfield, though it is odd that Lenovo only says "the forthcoming Intel Atom processor platform for smartphones" instead of just "Clover Trail+" in the press release.
First of all it’s the world’s first Intel Clover Trail Android phone! Pretty impressive right? Well that new Intel chip is running at a cool 2Ghz and has along for the ride! What this means is tons of power!
Anyhow, said Android device comes with many mouth-watering features: 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, Gorilla Glass 2, 13-megapixel F1.8 camera with dual flash, and a front-facing imager with an 88-degree super wide viewing angle. 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage add to the package. As with many Lenovo phones, there will also be three capacitive touch buttons below the screen. All of this goodness comes in a handsome 6.9mm-thick body that consists of stainless steel alloy plus polycarbonate, and together they weigh just 162g. Little else has been unveiled about the K900 so far, but it'll be available in China from April.
Viewing those Memorial awesome photos will be absolutely stunning thanks to the 5.5-inch 1080p display with 400PPI. Despite the large size those who have had hands on time with the phone say that if feels great in the hand, similar to the Samsung Note 2 or even the HTC Droid DNA.
There are no surprise where the K900's ports are concerned it's all pretty standard. You have the volume rocker on the left, power on the right and beneath that the covered microSD slot. Around back, there's a single strip of shiny metal surrounding the 13-megapixel camera and accompanied by a dual flash. And in what we consider to be an interesting industrial design decision, Lenovo's left four screws visible on the phone's back further conferring an element of elegance and high-end rigidity.
The AnTuTu benchmark results for the Lenovo K900 shows a score of around 27000 points and if the scores are indeed real, chip makers like Qualcomm and Samsung have a big cause of worry. The score of 27000 puts the K900 ahead of devices like HTC Droid DNA and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, with AnTuTu scores of in between 13000-15000 points. It is to be noted that Droid DNA and Galaxy Note 2 are powered by two of the best quad-core processors at present, the Snapdragon S4 Pro and the 1.6GHz Exynos 4412 respectively.
