Lenovo K800 – the first smartphone to be powered by Intel Medfield ‘SoC’
Intel is now officially in the System on a Chip ‘SoC’ business. Introduced at Intel Keynote in CES 2012 is the Intel ‘Medfield’ Atom Z2460 chip with its partner Lenovo. Lenovo launched the K800 Android smartphone and the first smartphone to be powered by Intel Atom Z2460 ‘SoC’.
Lenovo packed the K800 with some awesome goodies, according to some sources, the K800 should be running Android 4.0 ICS however in the announcement it is using Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The Lenovo K800 uses LeOS skin for user interface ‘UI’ compared to Mondrian where it is being used by Lenovo IdeaTab S2 and IdeaPhone S2. Another nifty feature that Lenovo is talking about is the WiDi which enable screen sync to a Smart TV at 720p HD. I am not sure what is the difference between WiDi and DLNA. (I will research on that after the break)
Other worth mentioning specs of this Intel based smartphone are its 4.5-inches HP display, an 8-Megapixel camera with LED flash, Bluetooth, WiFi and 3G. At the time of the CES K800 launching it is already being sold in China China Unicom and Lenovo has no plans of selling it worldwide.
