Hands on: Lenovo's K900 Clover Trail+ smartphone

updated 02:10 pm EST, Wed January 9, 2013

1080p display and Atom chipset

Lenovo followed up its CES computer announcements with several cellphone unveilings, introducing the K900 alongside several other phones. The flagship phone caught our attention, as one of the first to be powered by Intel's Clover Trail Atom platform, and we had a chance to handle the company's new flagship phone at a CES media event.

The K900 is one of the largest cellphones headed to the market, integrating a 5.5-inch display that is slightly bigger than that of the Galaxy Note. Huawei took a similar strategy with one of its CES unveilings, the Ascend Mate, which boasts a 6.1-inch panel.

One of Intel's newest Atom CPUs for smartphones, a dual-core 2GHz Clover Trail+ chip, has been paired with 2GB of RAM to help drive the 1920x1080 display resolution and Android Jelly Bean OS. The device maintained a fast frame rate when playing a 1080p video, while a 13-megapixel Exmor BSI sensor promises impressive recording.

We found the K900 to be unwieldy as a smartphone, though Galaxy Note fans may find the large size to be perfect. Despite the large display area, a combination of stainless steel and polycarbonate helps keep the thickness down to 6.9mm and the weight below six ounces.

Lenovo initially plans to release the K900 in China, and expand its reach in regional markets at later dates, however pricing remains unclear.
