Lenovo Announces First Intel Clover Trail+ Smartphone


Lenovo's 5.5-inch K900 smartphone is the first phone to integrate Intel's first dual-core Atom chip for handsets, as well as boasting the latter's Clover Trail+ platform.

Running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, the K900 sports a 1080p IPS capacitive touch display that features Gorilla Glass 2. The resolution equals a pixel density of more than 400ppi (pixels per-inch).

Powered by Intel's Atom Z2580 2GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, the K900 boasts a 13-megapixel camera that will feature a Sony Exmor BSI sensor, accompanied by a front-facing 2-megapixel camera. It'll be available with 16 GB of internal storage.

The K900 doesn't support 4G, but is compatible with GSM and 3G UMTS networks. It's scheduled for a launch in China during April, followed by India, Russia, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines. A global launch should follow soon after. Pricing details, meanwhile, has yet to be detailed.

Stay tuned for our hands-on with this device.

    Unless this is significantly cheaper than a Galaxy or an iPhone it'll flop.

    Finally an Intel CPU in a phone.
    Can this run FULL (x86) Windows 8? It has 2 gigs RAM and 16gigs storage. - Let me assume the 16 gigs can be upgraded somehow.

    o.O the specs... whoa that's a full blow PC! I hope it doesn't run WP8, you would be left with like 4GB of space lol. Please excuse my noobness, is Atom ARM licensed? I thought it was x86, if its x86 was Jellybean rewritten? I like it, i wonder how it compares to the Note II! Looking forward to the hands on Toms!

    No mentioned of battery size, we need to aim for 2 days of normal usage battery life.
    please make it at least 3000mah.

    I miss phisical buttons (at least one), I miss turning my phone off if I need to and still having an alarm go off, I miss having a phone that is smaller than my hand.

    x86 in a phone looks better with every new phone. I do not need 4g - 3g is fine for all my browsing and messaging. But 5.5" screen is to big - SIII is to big for me and my hands are not small.
    To bad you do not see good hardware in 4.3" form factor any more.
    And I would like to have a choice of a good phone with dual sim and physical qwerty - but nobody makes those things instead every one makes bigger screens and that is the only thing that is changing (becouse CPUs will always progress screen size does not have to any more)
