Lenovo announced the IdeaPhone K900 for China this week and if you somehow missed this phone, among all the other CES news, it’s time for you to catch up on it. We’re looking at one of the first phones to pack a 2GHz dual-core Intel Atom processor; it has a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p screen, 13-megapixel camera and will ship with Android 4.2.
That dual-core Intel Atom processor at 2GHz seems to be dominating the landscape benchmark-wise (if the results above are real, excluding PhotoShop hocus-pocus, other trickery, or benchmark application anomalies). Above 27,000 points in AnTuTu means that it’s benched much higher that other phones, some even quad-core, like the Samsung Galaxy Note II and its 13,590 score or the LG Optimus G with its 11,226.
Of course, nothing’s certain until we get a sample in our own labs, but it definitely looks promising and it could very well be an early indication of what Intel has in store for the Android landscape. Also, we can’t neglect the other newcomers either, from Qualcomm, NVIDIA, as well as Samsung. It is shaping up to be an interesting year!
