We all know Intel has had hard luck finding its way into the ever evolving smartphone market and we had already lots of rumors pointing towards a device or an announcement at CES and we finally saw Intel joining hands with Motorola for future market devices running Android and based on Intel’s SoC’s and just after the announcement, Intel announced its partnering with Lenovo and have unveiled a smartphone, Lenovo K800 which will be the first device to run the Intel’s 32nm Medfield SoC.

The device features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2460 CPU with 512KB L2 cache and has PowerVR SGX 540 as the GPU which has been clocked at a slightly higher than usual 400MHz and dual-channel LPDDR2 memory. The CPU is a single-core one but Intel said they have plans to come up with dual-core versions later, along with faster GPU’s. It comes with a 4.5″ LCD screen with HD resolution and will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Lenovo’s LeOS on top.

The K800 features an 8 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and a front-facing camera for video calling. As for the connectivity, the phone packs the usual 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS connectivity and Wi-Di (Wireless Display). The phone has support for near-field communication ( NFC) and a HDMI port. The phone will be able to stream video to TV sets equipped with Intel’s Wireless Display technology. According to reports, K800 is compatible with WCDMA HSPA+ and will be available on AT&T’s 3G network sooner or later.

As of now the phone will only launch in China and would be available Q2 2012 but there is no word on the pricing or whether the device would launch globally. According to reports the Intel’s Medfield even outperforms the Galaxy Nexus on benchmarks so it surely seems to be an interesting device and a good start for Intel.
