Earlier this year all we talked about was the Snapdragon 600 processor. Now that the Snapdragon 800 is in mass production, it's time to talk about the real beast. The Snapdragon 800 which clocks up to 2.3GHz and is quad-core.
Lenovo hasn't really made a big splash in the US market, but recent reports are showing us that they are gearing up for a major push. And frankly, it's about time. They showed off their K900 phone back at CES which has some pretty amazing specs. It's a 5-inch 1080p display with an Intel Atom processor. It's destroyed some benchmarks but is only available in some Asian markets, unfortunately. Now the Lenovo X910 has shown up on AnTuTu's benchmarking database and appears to be running a Snapdragon 800. We assume Snapdragon 800, because other processors don't hit 2.1GHz. It's also running Android 4.2.2, and as you can see the score isn't too shabby either at 29,231.
It's hard to tell if the X910 is a phone or a tablet. But I'm going to put my money on a phone. Most of their tablets have been pretty cheap, which means it won't sport a Snapdragon 800. But I'd be very happy to be wrong in this case. Some think that this is a successor to the K900, which is a great phone that will never come to the US. I am hoping that the X910, if it is real, is Lenovo's first real entrant into the US.
Keep in mind that these benchmarks can very easily be faked. Remember the Nexus 4 LTE we saw hit AnTuTu before Google I/O? Yeah that one was fake, just as I thought it would be. So be sure to take this with a grain of salt until we see some more evidence of new devices from Lenovo.
How many of you would buy a phone from Lenovo if the specs and pricing were right? Let us know in the comments below.
