Lenovo is not restricted to PCs, but at the same slowly and gradually making its smartphone portfolio strong. The Chinese major sent right signals during the announcement of K900, a solid piece of hardware with Intel Atom processor inside.
Since then, Lenovo hasn't announced any new high-end device. Of course, IFA Berlin is nearby and surely this tech vendor wants to showcase its upcoming handsets in Germany. Industry insiders have now started to say that Lenovo could announce a successor to K900 in September at IFA. In the meantime, a report by GForgames has come with an exclusive information about Lenovo's next big ticket handset.
The phone is said to be the flagship device and based on Antutu benchmarks - it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Currently codenamed - Lenovo X910, the handset has been tested in China. Indeed the benchmark results are exceptionally great. The Lenovo X910 is said to be powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and has managed to achieve 29231 points, based on Antutu benchmarks.
Now the big question is the original K900 comes with Intel Atom processor, while this very version has Snapdragon 800 processor. This could mean that either Lenovo is planning to launch a new version of K900 packaged with Qualcomm chipset. Or its time to see a brand new handset that is will be available globally. The critical success of K900 might be the reason, why Lenovo is looking to crush biggies like Samsung and Sony with its forthcoming X910 handset.
At this year's IFA tech show, Lenovo is not alone who will announce a smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The South Korean giant Samsung is also planning to announce a re-charged version of Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800 processor. The Japanese titan Sony is also believed to announce Honami i1 and Honami i1 Mini, with new age processor. The makers behind PlayStation Vita have already announced Xperia Z Ultra with Snapdragon 800 processor. Even HTC is prepping HTC One Max with ultra fast chipset.
