CES 2012 at Las Vegas is certainly a hotbed for new technologies, and it is no surprise to see Lenovo branch out and show off a phone (in addition to its Ultrabook range, of course), known as the Lenovo K800. This will be powered by Intel’s new Medfield processor that was specially engineered for use in mobile devices, and we do know that the Medfield processor will see action in up and coming smartphones by Motorola and Lenovo, where they will all run on the Android operating system.
Running on a version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Lenovo K800 seems to be headed for the Chinese market originally, as it touted an all Chinese menu until someone changed it to English, giving us hope that it might also see the light of day in Europe, North America and the rest of the world. Similar to the Intel reference model that was being demostrated at CES, the Lenovo K800 will run on an 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2460 processor with 512KB of L2 cache and 512MB RAM, accompanied by a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU clocked at around 400MHz, dual-channel LPDDR2 memory and a 1,900mAH battery. Rewind the clock by a few years, and this is truly an engineering miracle. Other hardware specifications include a 4.5″ at 1280×720 (720p HD) resolution and an 8-megapixel camera at the back.
