Almost a month after it was scheduled to launch, Lenovo K900 smartphone is finally going on sale in China this week. The company today sent out a press release informing that its first Intel Clover Trail+ smartphone is out in China and will be released in select international markets this summer. The company has not given a clear release schedule for other markets but as we have been seeing reports of India launch for a long time, may be it is heading to Indian shores soon.
“Smartphones are a critical component of Lenovo’s PC+ strategy and the Lenovo K900 is an example of this strategy in action. With its cutting-edge design and intuitive, optimized user experience, K900 offers China’s smartphone users a fresh, new option,” said Liu Jun, senior vice president, Lenovo and President of the Lenovo Business Group.
Lenovo has also revealed that it plans to take its smartphone business to more markets. The company already retails its Android phones in select countries including India and Philippines apart from China.
“Lenovo’s smartphone business is growing fast in global markets. In 2013, we will add 10 more countries to our smartphone footprint, and by year-end we will cover most of the world’s emerging markets,” Liu Jun added.
Looks like Lenovo is aiming to be big player in the smartphone arena and it is targeting emerging markets first.
Coming back to Lenovo K900, the smartphone comes with 2GHz Intel Atom Z2580 dual-core processor 5.5-inch full HD IPS display, 13MP rear camera, and Android 4.2.
