The Lenovo K900 is a new smart phone that won’t be released until April of 2013. However, Lenovo held a conference in Las Vegas recently where the new phone was unveiled and investors had a chance to see the new phone and what it can do.
The design of the K900 is sleek and semi-industrial, with black, cobalt and metal colors combining on its modern chassis. Some screws remain exposed, and appeals as a tool rather than a toy. It is a bit longer than most phones, but its slim width makes it more than manageable. The K900 weighs in at a solid 162 grams.
The K900s display screen is breathtaking. It is an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16 million colors. It has a 1080x 1920 pixel count, which makes the images and videos appear seamless. The multitouch screen is five and a half inches in length and is protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 2. This makes it a safe and amazingly crisp screen to enjoy visual stimulus in almost any light.
The K900 has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. A micro SD card is also supported by the K900. This card can be up to 32 GB, which can make the devices total memory a whopping 48 GB. There are some reports that suggest that the K900 will support SD cards up to 64 GB, but consumers won’t know until the release of the new phone in April.
The camera of the K900 is also amazing. It has 13 MP and some advanced features like touch focus and a dual LED flash. Video is also supported and shoots at 30 frames a second. All cameras are fitted with a F1.8 lens, which makes shooting in low light a breeze. The secondary camera has 2 MP and is comparably clear to the primary one, but is usually used for self portraits. The main camera can be used for more professional projects.
Where the K900 really excels from other phones is in its CPU. The new device is fitted with the cutting edge Intel Clover Trail, which speeds along at an amazing 2 GHz. The GPU is an equally powerful PowerVR SGX544, and both of these things combined make the Lenovo K900 the fastest phone on the prospective market, and when it is released, many experts project that the phone will move off the shelves just as fast as its processor.
The operating system of the K900 is the android v4.2, also known as jelly bean. This is the most updated version of jelly bean, and should make the navigation software of the K900 easy to use and without any hiccups.
One feature that comes on the K900 is an image and video editor. This can be used to professionalize your home videos and make sitting through vacation photos an exciting experience. It also has a document viewer and a basic organizer, with a calculator and calendar. The K900 is also has a voice activated dialed and memo pad, for easy hand free use.
The rumored price of this device is around $500.00, but it won’t be released in North America, at least for the initial stage of its marketing release. The K900 will only be available in India, China, Russia and South East Asia. This means that it will be the best smartphone that Americans can’t buy.
What makes the K900 such a groundbreaking device is its lightning fast central processor. The specs were originally set at 1.8 GHz, but with the new Clover Trail and the preliminary tests, this figure has been increased to 2.0 GHz. This marks the first time a CPU in a smartphone has achieved this capability, and consumers and investors alike are excited to see what this new processor can do. When paired with the stunning display of the capacitive touchscreen and updated jelly bean, the K900 has the potential to be the fastest and most powerful smartphone on the market. The world anxiously awaits for April and the K900s release.
