Lenovo launches new K900 Android based smartphone, with Intel Atom Z2580 CPU

Lenovo releases K900 Android smartphone, runs on Intel Atom Z2580 chip

On Friday Lenovo launched a new Android based smartphone to little fanfare and I feel that it deserves to be covered as it packs some cool hardware. The Lenovo K900 utilizes an Intel Atom Z2580 2GHz dual-core processor which breaks the trend of Qualcomm and NVIDIA processors seen in other flagship smartphones currently on the market.

The K900 also packs a serious display. A 5.5-inch full HD 400ppi LCD produces a crisp and clear viewing experience, while a 13MP rear camera handles all of your selfie photon taking needs. The K900 runs Android 4.2 Jellybean and features mashup of stainless steel and polycarbonate to form a unibody frame, which weighs in at 162 grams.

The 6.9mm thick smartphone has no official launch date, and the company has only said that it "will roll out to international markets later this summer." There is no mention of a US roll out, or any indication that it will make it to the UK or Australian markets.
