Chinese Lenovo LePhone K800 offering innovative achievement

We are constantly seeing new smartphone hardware being released, and more recently it’s not just the usual suspects with regards to handset manufacturers that have been grabbing the headlines, and today we have news of the Chinese Lenovo LePhone K800 offering innovative achievement.

We only told you last week that the Lenovo LePhone K800 was due to be released, and Intel has now announced the handsets availability in the country. The handset is the first smartphone in the country to feature the Intel Medfield processor, and is now available on the official Lenovo website, 360Buy.com. The device is also available at selected Suning & GOME stores and Lenovo retail stores, and is priced at around RMB 3,299 ($524 USD).

Using the adopted Intel Atom processor the handset is promised to provide users a high performance handset but with low power consumption. The 1.6GHz processor promises to provide a strong performance and will easily cope with various application demands. The Lenovo LePhone K800 features a 4.5-inch IPS full view display with a 400MHz GPU that will provide advanced graphics with a wider viewing angle along with a better visual experience.

Users will be able to enjoy Full HD 1080p videos on the stunning display that will also be ideal for gaming. Its eight megapixel camera is capable of 1080p video capture that has a fast response time, while around the front is a 1.3 megapixel shooter. The handset also has unique wireless technology that allows users to stream content to a larger HDTV display, which turns the handset into a true home entertainment centre.

The Lenovo LePhone K800 launches running the Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread operating system, but you would have thought it wouldn’t be long before it’s upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich. This follows the news we brought to you recently of the first Intel powered handset to launch in the UK market with the Orange Santa Clara.
