Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 hands-on

Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 hands-on
After rummaging through the myriad of cool tablets and ultrabook convertible devices at Lenovo’s outdoor booth at CES, we finally came upon the mysterious Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 Android powered smartphone. Even though we were unable to see the device in action, like actually seeing Android running, we managed to get a good hands-on time with this phablet/tabphone.

Sure, its overall large size is one of its most discernible aspects, but for something so grand and ready to compete with things like the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the K900 is simply gorgeous! Donning a stainless steel back casing combined with some polycarbonate elements to give it a good contrasting look, the K900 simply has an impeccable industrial design that makes the Samsung Galaxy Note II look outdated and cheap. At the same time, though, it’s amazingly thin at only 6.9mm, which is deceptively streamlined when you compare that figure to some of phablets out there.

From head to toe, this beauty is blessed with an impressive specs sheet that no doubt will give the competition a good run for their money. Specifically, it features a 5.5” 1080p HD display with a pixel density of 400 ppi, Intel’s new 2GHz Atom processor, 13-megapixel auto-focus camera with an f1.8 lens and Sony Exmor sensor, 88-degree wide-angle front-facing camera (mentioned to us to feature an f1.8 lens as well), and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a custom skin of course.

Going with the premium look and feel, the Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 is undoubtedly sharp looking in every facet, which easily would make us forget about the Note II at this point. Unfortunately, there’s no mention if this one is going to specifically making an appearance in the US market, since for the moment, it’s going to launch in the Chinese market starting in April. Still, we can only hope that this one will somehow make an appearance stateside.
