This year at CES, Lenovo has unveiled the K900, powered by Intel’s upcoming Clover Trail+ platform. Sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS screen protected by Gorilla Glass 2, the K900 looks gorgeous with a slim 6.9mm profile and weighing in at a light 162g with a sleek stainless steel alloy and polycarbonate body. Inside, it’s powered by a dual-core 2GHz Atom chip with 2GB of RAM ad 16GB of storage. It’s got a 13MP F1.8 rear camera with dual flash that doesn’t protrude from the case, leaving a smooth rear face, and a front-facing shooter with an 88 degree viewing angle.

While the phone may not be publicly be available yet, some leaked benchmarks show impressive scores. According to PhoneArena, someone had the chance to run AnTuTu on the device, garnering a score of more than 25,000. In comparison HTC’s DROID DNA running a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro only gets an average of 14,000. An impressive rise in performance, though should be taken with a grain of salt as it could have been faked. If it is real though, ARM-based chips will be looking at some serious competition. Intel’s Clover Trail+ looks impressive but only when Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa comes out will we be able see who reigns supreme.

The Lenovo K900 will be available in China on April and hopefully we’ll be seeing it in the Philippines shortly thereafter.

    Seems like a cool looking phone. Wonder how the new Intel processors do.
