K900 looks good, but looks to be just for Chinese consumption
Lenovo is looking to make some waves in the smartphone market with its new K900 "superphone". Most were wowed by
Sony's impressive Xperia Z
with its 5" 1080p display, but Lenovo's K900 is sporting a 5.5" display while still retaining 1080p resolution (this also means that it will have a slightly lower pixel density than the Xperia Z).
Under the screen, the K900 is powered by Intel's
platform. To go with that firepower, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage are also in the cards. More impressively, Lenovo has managed to toss in a 13MP camera with a F1.8 focal length lens, dual-LED flash, and the requisite front-facing camera for video chat.
The device itself is 6.9mm thick and weighs just 5.7 ounces. The body of the phone is a mixture of polycarbonate and stainless steel that gives it a nice, business-like exterior.
“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.”
Unfortunately, it looks as though Lenovo is targeting the K900 primarily at the Chinese market and a few other select markets. There's no word on when (or if) it will be available to a U.S. audience. At least Sony has enough confidence to market its “superphone” in the U.S.
