Though Intel has not yet dived in high-end Android territory, the world renowned chip maker seems ready to go for gold soon with the Lenovo IdeaPhone K900. This is a beautiful 5.5-inch Android-based “phablet” we’ve spotted in Las Vegas at CES 2013 and at the same time the world’s first ever phone powered by Intel’s brand spanking new Clover Trail+ CPU.

The processor inside this baby is a dual-core one, so at a first sight it doesn’t stand a chance in a head-to-head brawl with Qualcomm or Nvidia’s quad-core platforms. Then again, the Clover Trail+ is clocked at 2 GHz, so we expect it to be rather powerful.

Besides the SoC, Lenovo’s K900 should catch your eye with an ultra-thin body, measuring just 6.9 mm, an outstanding 1,920 x 1,080 pix res IPS LCD panel and a whopping 13 MP rear-facing shooter. The rest of the spec sheet also includes goodies like Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 2 gigs of RAM, microSD support and a 2 MP front-facing cam, so nothing to be unhappy about here.

On the flipside, we’re a bit worried about the battery’s size seeing that very thin profile and we can’t say we’re big fans of the silver K900’s design either (thankfully, there’s a black version, too). Expect the K900 to land in China in April for a yet to be specified price.
