The Lenovo K800 smartphone has been unveiled as CES 2012 as well which has drawn pretty much attention. The handset is the first powered by Intel’s Medfield processor – a 1.6GHz Medfield Atom Z2460 chip.

The Lenovo K800 comes in an angular design that mimics the design of the Lenovo ThinkPad range of notebooks. It’ll eventually be released as running Android 4.0 ICS even though the model demoed at CES was running Android Gingerbread 2.3.

The handset has a 4.5-inch 720p HD TFT touchscreen display with a high resolution of 1,280×720 pixels. The screen is best for video playback. Everything sounds great except its thickness which measures 10mm which is far more thicker than the Samsung Galaxy S2 or the recently spotted Huawei Ascend P1 S

Other goodies of the K800 are an internal storage of 16GB, a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera, WCDMA HSPA+ 21Mbps wireless radio, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS on-board. The handset also offers the capability to sync with a large display at 720p@30 fps via WiFi. It’s the first Intel’s Medfield-powered smartphone. Lenovo also claim that they’ll bring out more tablets and smartphones powered by the Intel Medfield in mid of 2012. No price info has been announced for the K800 at the moment.
