For a company that tends not to dominate mobile industry headlines, Lenovo sure has been putting forth a pretty respectable spread of hardware over the course of the last six months or so. That’s included some oddballs, like a non-convertible-tablet Android laptop, but also some very compelling devices like the ThinkPad 8. On the smartphone front, the Vibe Z was probably the most interesting of the company’s offerings, sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p display and Snapdragon 800 SoC. Today, we’re looking at where Lenovo might be working to take its smartphone lineup from here, and if some benchmark results can be trusted, it seems that Lenovo might be the latest OEM flirting with the idea of 2K 1440p displays.
The handset’s identified both by model K3T and the codename Kingdom, and from what we can see, it certainly appears to be quite the high-end device. Besides a 2560 x 1440 display, it looks like the phone will get 3GB of RAM and run another Snapdragon 800 – sure, it’s no 805, but the 800 is still comfortably equipped, even in 2014. We also see a 13-megapixel main camera, good-sized 5MP front-facer, and the presence of 16GB flash storage.
When might we see this guy go official? Well, MWC is a possibility, but Lenovo already came to CES with a nice spread. Then again, while it brought the Vibe Z to show off, that phone formally launched all the way back in November, so maybe it’s really not too, too early to be talking about a new flagship.
