Lenovo unveils the Intel Atom-powered K900 smartphone

Lenovo logoFollowing on from Huawei's announcement of the Ascent Mate yesterday, Chinese electronics company Lenovo has unveiled its own phablet at CES 2013. However, unlike Huawei, which opted to give its device a "huge" 6.1-inch HD IPS+ panel, Lenovo has chosen a more restrained 5.5-inch display for its K900 smartphone, bringing it in line with the current Samsung Galaxy Note II.

Lenovo has provided few details concerning the K900's specifications. The smartphone is known to ship with a 5.5-inch IPS display sporting a resolution of 1920 by 1080, delivering a pixel density higher than 400 ppi. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Power comes from a "forthcoming" Intel Atom processor. According to Lenovo, Intel has yet to "release complete specifications", which explains the lack of specifics regarding the component.

Other specs include a 13MP back-facing camera backed by a Sony Exmor BSI sensor, and F1.8 focal lens. Weighing 162 grams the device has a thickness of just 6.9mm which makes it, according to Lenovo, "the thinnest phone in its class". The unibody shell is made from a stainless steel alloy paired with polycarbonate. The operating system of choice will likely be Android, although the company has yet again failed to confirm this.

Lenovo says the K900 will be available from April in China, as well as select regional markets afterwards. Pricing to be announced "at a later date".
