Lenovo is proving to be a tech company to be reckoned with. It’s impossible to ignore the durability of its PCs and gadgets, along with its ability to outshine popular smartphones in the market. It is known around the world for making sturdy PCs, laptops and tablets. Just recently, Lenovo entered the smart TV venture producing the 55-inch flat panel LeTV. And the latest impressive gadget the Chinese company has come up with is the only smartphone that’s powered by an Intel chipset.
Lenovo K900 boasts of a massive 5.5” x 3” display, which is almost the same as Samsung Note’s dimensions. It takes advantage of a multi-touch, IPS LCD capacitive screen with 16M colors for the 1080 x 1920 pixels. The casing itself looks very solid with an aluminum back cover and a fortified Corning Gorilla Glass 2. A volume rocker is set on the left side, with the power button and mini SD card slot on the opposite side. The back side looks very modern in metallic silver, with the traditional Lenovo emboss and the Intel logo at the bottom.
While the rest of the competition had already pushed their quad core bets, Lenovo K900 may seem outdated with its dual core CPU. K900’s Intel Atom chip set is not a unique feature since it is also utilized in other smartphones such as Acer Liquid, some Motorola models and other lesser known mobile gadgets. Lenovo K900’s Intel Clover Trail is supported by a 2GHz CPU which will multi-task well with Android’s Jelly Bean 4.2 version. The phone is GPRS and EDGE enabled with a HSPA+ speed. It has multiple connectivity options including the trendy and highly usable WiFi hotspot. It comes packed with a 16GB memory storage with a 2GB RAM. Lenovo K900 has outdone iPhone 5 with its camera features. The chat cam is at an acceptable 2 megapixels while the primary cam boasts a whopping 13MP, levelling it against Sony Xperia and Samsung Galaxy S4.
Lenovo is making significant efforts to bump off Samsung and Apple at least in its home country. It’s already gaining momentum in smartphone sales as Lenovo’s China market share went up 14.2 during the third quarter last year. Based on a market research, Samsung still gets the biggest slice of the Chinese smartphone pie at 18.8% market share. The rest of it is shared by an unknown local phone called Coolpad, Huawei, Lenovo and ZTE.
