High-end Lenovo K920 revealed: 6-inch Quad HD screen, Snapdragon 801 CPU, 16MP camera, and Android KitKat
Regardless of its name, this device is a high-end one. It’s huge, too, as it sports a 6-inch Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560 pixels) display - although its slim bezels help a lot in keeping it fairly compact.
The K920 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Lenovo’s own software customization on top. It’s also got LTE, NFC, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, 5MP front-facing camera, and 3GB of RAM - all in a 7.7mm-thin body. Overall, the device looks pretty cool.
Engadget Chinese has a video presenting the Lenovo K920, and we included it in the slideshow below. This particular model is made for China Mobile, and we don’t know I there’s going to be an international version of the device. There’s also no word on when the K920 will be released, and neither for what price. But we’ll probably find out more about this soon.

Let down by the Cpu.
The S805 or the Tegra4

Wait for the Note 4 if you are wanting the SD805. Otherwise, it seems quite similar to what is leaking out about the Note 4.

Why tegra 4? Sd800 is faster and more powerful than tegra 4. You probaly meant tegra k1.
23. Arte-8800 (limited) (Posts: 4039; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
Wrong . A Tegra4 needs to be clocked 600Ghz lower than the S805 to preform giving the same performance. Like: S805 2.7Ghz, the T4 will be clocked at 2.1Ghz for it to be equilibrium. So if clocked the same as the S805 at 2.7ghz, it will be much faster.

I want S810 or Tegra K1. That would be perfect.
On a more serious note, what really lets this phone down is the UI. We need a Google Play Edition of this beast.

Who are you?
Immation of me. Lmao.
Yes the S810 or the Tegra K1 would be superb.
A big difference in speed and graphics

Just like the Lenovo850
Slick sexy stunning with brushed steel aluminium

But it doesn't use premium materials like titanium. :(

The K900 using magnesium alloy instead of crappy aluminum. Unlike aluminum (which is cheap and not premium at all) Magnesium alloy is stronger than plastic.

Very cool design! Software looks kinda cool too!

It's camera hump makes it look like a 2010 phone.

The Beast has arrived!
I like the small bezels. But the body needs to be rounded in order to comfortably hold such a big phone. Square design doesn't help its large size.

Lenovo k900 was a masterpiece.. I loved its design..

Holy s*** I want...I'll probably have relatives in China buy it and mail it over if the price is somewhat reasonable.

I'm still holding out for a 20" 4K phone, come on Panasonic turn your tablet into a phone!

Would be nice if these Chinese companies start including bands from other countries...nice phone, but lacking 3G/4G with T Mobile...
17. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5580; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
"…but lacking 3G/4G with T Mobile…"
Or VZW XLTE/LTE….
25. Shatter (Posts: 1979; Member since: 29 May 2013)
No international phones will ever work on Verizons network. Lenovo hasn't even said the bands that this phone will support.
Some previous phones have had the bands required to connect to T-Mobiles 1800mhz 4G.

Looks B-E-A-U-TIFUL too bad it probably won't be supported by USA data coverage

That phone has got some junk in her trunk.

Never trust on Chinese phone maker
seen nice on paper
but poor build quality
29. WindowsiDroid (Posts: 108; Member since: 22 Jul 2013)
I have a Lenovo K900 until now and it's still working. NOT ALL CHINESE PRODUCTS ARE LOW QUALITY remember that.
32. justsayit (Posts: 179; Member since: 09 May 2013)
i own a lenovo s920,it still work,got some build quality issue
the usb port cover broke easy,just use the phone for few months,
edge crack a lot after some short distance(less than 0.5 meter),which are quite disappointing
and the feel of the phone is very cheap even when compare to other low-end phone i owned before(my very first smartphone,optimus one xD )

Naahh man. Lenovo is one of those better Chinese brands.
31. renz4 (Posts: 215; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)
So another flagship device with 801 instead of 805.
33. DillWeed (Posts: 49; Member since: 14 Mar 2014)
Too bad it d doesn't come with pressure sensitive screen and stylus
34. isprobi (Posts: 193; Member since: 30 May 2011)
Probably never in USA. So my Sony Xperia Z Ultra is the only real choice for near future.
