New Lenovo K7t with Quad HD display and Android KitKat appears in benchmark test, could be launched soon

Not long after it announced its first LTE-capable smartphone (the Vibe Z), Lenovo might also introduce its first handset with a Quad HD (1440 x 2560) display.

According to a leaked Antutu benchmark test result, the Quad HD Lenovo smartphone is called K7t (codename: Kingdom). It seems that the handset runs Android 4.4.1 KitKat, and features a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM-8974 processor clocked at 2.26 GHz, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, 5MP front-facing camera, and a 13MP rear camera. The size of the handset’s display is not known, but we assume it’s of at least 5 inches (since a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution wouldn’t really make sense on a smaller screen).

The name of the alleged new Lenovo smartphone suggests that it’s a successor to the K800 from 2012 and the K900 that was introduced in early 2013.

Of course, since it’s not that hard to fake a benchmark result, we can’t be certain of the K7t’s existence. What we are certain of is that China has already given us the world’s first Quad HD smartphone (Vivo Xplay 3S), and the second one might also come from China, thanks to Oppo. Will Lenovo become the third Chinese hardware maker to offer a Quad HD handset? Let’s hope we’ll find out soon!

Just wanna know why are these companies using 2K Displays??!! I think a 4.7 inches Diaplay with 720p resolution is better then these!!!

Not really, the use comes with reading Chinese/Japanese characters which can be quite difficult to read at a certain size/aspect, the text comes popping out quite nicely as evidenced with the Vivo Play 3s on Gizchina. It may be useless now, but when streaming content exceeds 1080p, the technology will be there and ready and 2k screens may very well be replaced by 4k.

Lenovo makes very good phones and tablets. Not to mention their Laptops. Held a K900 the other day and hot damn the build quality and the screen. It's a shame that there are less accessories for it.

I have lenovo P780, true to P series the battery seems to last and last, I easily get upto one week with battery saver, On some websites I read that Lenovo phones had this problem of not being able to use calling apps like skype, viber, vonage, line etc. Although I haven't tried it but I hope this isn't true. At least some models of lenovo have this problem it seems. There is some technology that goes into making this facility available. I hope levnovo addresses this issue for sets sold outside china. Specially for LTE capable handsets. I hope that the issue if at all there can be resolved by a software update !!
