Lenovo has announced that it’s first Intel-based smartphone, the K900. Featuring a 5.5-inch IPS screen and an Intel Atom processor wrapped in a slim 6.9mm unibody, the phone sadly isn’t coming to the west anytime soon. The company has confirmed a China launch, with “select regional markets” coming soon.

Still, let us have a look at what this phone is all about. Like I wrote above, the phone is 6.9mm thin; and features a unibody mold made from a mixture of stainless steel and polycarbonate. It’s also very light, weighing only 162g.

Hardware-wise, the screen has a pixel density of over 400+ pixels per inch, and is protected with Gorilla Glass 2. The K900 runs on the upcoming Intel Atom platform – which is hard to actually detail, mainly because Intel hasn’t said much on the chip. However, Lenovo has said that this phone will be the first in using that new Intel Atom processor. The phone’s camera has a 13-megapixel lens using Sony’s Exmor BSI sensor (like the Xperia Z), but Lenovo has tweaked it slightly with a f/1.8 focal length lens to handle low-light flashless photos.

The phone is coming out in April, only for China. Pricing for it, however, has not been announced.
