Lenovo’s upcoming Android smartphone, which comes with Intel’s Medfield family processor, will not be launched in India, a spokesperson of the company told The Mobile Indian.
The new Lenovo K800, which was showcased at recently held Consumer Electronics Show 2012 in Las Vegas (USA), will be released first in China. The news is definitely sad because the phone has mouth-watering specifications.
Lenovo K800 is the first smartphone to come with a single core Intel Atom Z2460 mobile processor that comes coupled with PowerVR SGX 540 graphics chip. The phone comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and runs with the new Lenovo LeOS user interface layered on top of it.
Lenovo K800 features a 4.5-inch touchscreen display supporting 720p HD native resolution. It comes with 8 megapixel camera that can capture 15 high quality photos in less than a second. The graphics chip is capable of supporting 1080p HD video playback.
The smartphone promises HD video playback for 6 hours, 3G talk time for 8 hours and audio playback for 45 hours.
The handset, which we had reviewed also, is truly top class.
Lenovo also showcased Snapdragon chip based smartphones which are also not coming to India.
However, there is a ray of hope too. “If the response to the phone is good in China, the company will review its plans for India,” said the spokesperson.
