CES 2013: Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 unveiled, 5.5in display, dual-core Atom processor

CES 2013: Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 unveiled, 5.5in display, dual-core Atom processorYou have to wonder if Chinese manufacturer Lenovo makes much moolah out west, in the increasingly crowded Android market.

It’s not clear if this new chap will bother making the voyage, but in any case, Lenovo has chosen Las Vegas to debut the IdeaPhone K900.

Yeah, I know what you want to hear. Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 specs include a 5.5in 1080p display (400PPI), 13MP rear camera, and – by launch – Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean).

Somewhat surprisingly, it’s not a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor powering the show (I'll give you a couple of seconds to lift your jaws from the floor), but a 2GHz dual-core Intel Atom processor.

The Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 measures just 6.9mm thick. If that sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the same thickness as the just-announced ZTE Grand S, which claims to be the thinnest 5in 1080p smartphone.

You can customise your Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 with one of four metallic backs, and – brilliantly – you can also turn off Lenovo’s custom UI.

As with a lot of these new Chinese smartphones at CES, there’s no specific word on a western release just yet. China will reportedly see the Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 in April, though pricing is still a mystery.

Will I be disappointed with the battery size?
I do hope not

Wonder how much this weighs? That size and those materials? Well, better than those too-light devices...

Hopefully we'll start to see some more Intel x86 phones, only this year with a battery life of more than a few hours, before the Ubuntu for Phone image comes out

Not seen much wrong with the first intel phones battery life tbh.

Needs a red dot, and more black.

And Jan, surely you can't approve of the company name being on the front? :p

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 9, 2013 at 18:12

True :p How dare they!!!

Yeah on the front is a pity, name looks good on the back oddly.

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 9, 2013 at 22:21

Name that large on the front will cause cognitive dissonance! People will assume it says XPERIA :p
