CES 2013: Lenovo K900 with Intel dual-core processor unveiled

Lenovo K900Lenovo today unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the Lenovo K900. It’s unlike most of the flagship devices being unveiled this week as CES 2013 unfolds. It does not sport a quad-core processor but will be among if not the first to use Intel’s first dual-core Atom chip for phones. It will also not sport a 5-inch FHD display but rather a 5.5-inch FHD one.

“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.”

We don’t have all the specifications about the Lenovo K900 yet but here is what we know so far:

  • Processor: 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2580
  • Operating system: Google Android Jelly Bean with Lenovo Le Phone UI
