Lenovo preparing Snapdragon 800 phone, here is what it looks like
Lenovo might not associate with smartphones, but in reality the company is one of the biggest smartphone makers in China and now it’s jumping right into the high-end with a new Snapdragon 800 based device. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 is even more powerful than the Snapdragon 600, the chip inside the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One.

The new device is known as either the Lenovo K6 or Lenovo X910, and it’s just made an unofficial appearance in Chinese forums.

The presence of the new Snapdragon MSM8974 chip inside the Lenovo device is confirmed by AnTuTu scores. The device seems to feature a 5-inch 1080 x 1920-pixel display, Adreno 330 graphics which basically fits the definition of a high-end smartphone. Leaksters portray the device as thin and light, and it allegedly feels good in the hand.

Finally, we should mention that the Lenovo K6 or X910 is not likely to come to the United States. Lenovo is big in China and that’s its main market for this handset.

Not good news for Intel. Lenovo ditching atom processor as well. Hopefully Intel can pull rabbit out of hat and save itself in mobile market

"Looks like a pretty generic design," I thought to myself.

I don't mind that at all, it does have a appeal to it, almost masculine.

I feel as though after this "cycle" of smartphones, sales from all OEM's might start declining... Think: with these processors rolling out, I personally, after purchasing a phone (LG G2 in this case) won't see smartphones appeal to me as much because they'll be so stinking fast any faster would just be unnecessary. The screen norm, one could say IS 1080p, software wouldn't need to get any better because it functions so well, once more, they are FAST, so really what I guess I'm trying to say is, we might be approaching a hump. That point where a smartphone is everything we need it to be. The mark where you no longer need to upgrade your hardware after 2 years because you really don't need to; everything works fine. Disregard all tech-junkies that buy stuff because they want to. But what about the average consumer? What is now happening to the iPhone 5 might start happening to that monster Samsung and HTC and LG and Sony etc. etc.
Or I'm just drunk...

well people want their tablets to be as powerful and capable as their computers and people want their phones to be as powerful as their tablets.

So really, until my phone keeps pace with mac pro, I wont be satisfied.

cause, come on, my note 2 is a unbelievably fast and capable compared to my OG Droid, an when I had my OG droid i was convinced THAT was all I'd ever need form a smart phone.

Sorry to rant, because I can totally see where you guys are coming from. But I think we're just getting started.

smartphone design however i think has reached its peak. haha

Am I being a bit fussy here, but what is the point in this article if China is going to be the only place which will ever see this phone?

Because people from around the world read this site, and there are those of us interested in tech in general - what other countries are using, getting.. etc.

lenovo doesn´t have luck in europe. High end spec but hardly anyone has got their handset.
