Lenovo Group Ltd. (992), the world’s largest personal-computer maker, is seeking to extend its push into the smartphone market by becoming first to sell a handset based on Intel Corp. (INTC)’s latest chip design.
The K900 will work on a new Intel dual-core version of its Atom processor, the company said. The phone will be sold in Asia, part of Lenovo’s effort to capture the attention of consumers there who are upgrading to their first smartphones.
The new Lenovo K900 phone, based on a design by Intel, sports a 5.5-inch screen and has a 13-megapixel camera.
