Lenovo shows off 5.5" IdeaPhone K900 with 2GHz Intel CPU

Lenovo shows off 5.5
There are a few pretty nice looking devices that we've seen at CES that are going to be heading to the Chinese market, and another one for the list is the Lenovo IdeaPhone K900. It's a 5.5" smartphone/phablet that is sporting some impressive specs, and is actually one of the first phones that will come to market with Intel's new 2GHz Atom processor.

The 5.5" display will clock in at the now standard high-end resolution of 1080p, which means it has 400PPI. The chassis is built with stainless steel and polycarbonate, and will measure just 6.9mm thick, which Lenovo claims is the thinnest for its class. It sounds like Lenovo actually bought some camera lenses from Sony, because the K900 has a 13MP Sony Exmor backside illuminated sensor. 

The build on display was running Android 4.1 with Lenovo's customized UI. The K900 will be available in April in China. No word on pricing or potential availability in North America.

Well, bigger is right...better ain't so...
...and this phone, this very phone, puts yesterday's article about 5 inchers being the screen limit of phones to redundancy.

If you read the article properly, you'd understand that it was saying that 5" would be the standard, not the limit. Also, look up the definition of the word, "redundancy". It's clearly not the right word for what you're trying to say.

It's not new as it features in the European version of the RAZR M, the RAZR i, hope all the apps now have been optimised for the Intel processor now.

This isn't the same processor as whats in the Razr i. That was a Medfield chip, this is the Lexington if I recall correctly. So it's a generation newer.
That said I really have no idea what any of that means, and I may have my wires crossed in regards to the names. Wish intel would devise a naming convention of some kind even though their total lack of one is almost refreshing.

It'a a powerful dual-core Atom with HT(4 Threads). GPU also powerful enough to match iPad 3, which is better than iPhone 5(PowerVR 543 MP3), Xperia Z (Adreno 320), Nexus 10/Exynos 5250 (Mali 604)

Its more likely to be single core though dual core is a necessity.

It's Atom Z2580, a Dual core processor with HT. (4 Threads)
It's GPU is PowerVR 544 MP2 @533 MHz (This means graphics power will be slightly better than that of iPhone 5 OR same power of iPad 3)

But the States S3 is running at 2.0Ghz and the international S3 with nimphitmin kernel is clocked at 1.8Ghz rooted. But tho it's I believe it's a Dualcore with Atom CPU are multi-threaded which works like Quadcore.

But love the specs designs and looks.....

states s3 actually runs on Android OS, v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), upgradable to v4.1.1 (Jelly Bean)
Chipset Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon
CPU Dual-core 1.5 GHz not 2.0ghz FYi!!!!!

I'm with mick25 on this one. If you truly had a GN2, you wouldn't believe that.

New inovation hologram phones they can be as big or small as you want. First one to make one either android, apple, or windows can take all my money. UI dosnt matter to me as long as I can surf, watch and text.

Now that we have monster hardware hope the software especially the game get updated to take full advantage of it. Like our intel PC era. Games drive tech and sales.

a metal clad....looks great...and interchangeable back covers. Finally, an android flagship which looks like a fagship, not a dirt cheap toy.

well before you jump down my throte at least consider what I' saying. Why would we NEED that in a phone. In a tablet, yes I can see the use. But honestly i'll take a scaled down 1.6 ghz and save some battery life
