Lenovo K800

We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors and speculations surrounding an Intel Medfield-powered smartphone with Android 4.0 for a while now and we are glad to announce that this has been finally made official.

The Lenovo K800 has been revealed at the 2012 CES in Las Vegas and will hit the market in Q2 of this year. Unfortunately, it will only be made available in China, according to official statements, but this might change really fast, considering that the K800 looks like a possible crowd pleaser in the US and Europe as well.

Running Android 4.0 out of the box and featuring a 1.6 GHz Intel Medfield processor, the 4.5-inch smartphone looks like a real beast on paper. The TFT screen will play 720p video clips, according to the manufacturers (the exact resolution is yet to be specified) and the Lenovo K800 will also feature an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with a maximum sensitivity of ISO 3200.

I don’t know about you, but I personally get excited reading these features and specs and can’t imagine what I would do if I could get my hands on this monster of a smartphone!

In terms of connectivity, the 4.5-incher from Lenovo will be compatible with HSPA+ and will of course feature Bluetooth 3.0, 802. 11 b/g/n WiFi and GPS. The smartphone should additionally feature 3G and 4G LTE connectivity by the time it will hit the US (or rather, if it will ever hit the US).

No details on pricing just yet, but it’s pretty clear that we are dealing with a premium gadget, set to be made available at a not-so-affordable price tag.

Keep in touch with in the coming weeks or so for details about the possible release of the Android 4.0 Intel Medfield-powered Lenovo K800 in the United States and/or in Europe!
