The P90 is among the first phones to be powered by Intel’s new 64-bit Atom chip.
Lenovo is expanding its currently small smartphone lineup with an impressive new device, the P90, which has been announced at CES 2015. The P90 is the only phone other than the Asus ZenFone 2 to be powered by Intel’s new 64-bit Atom processor – the P90 is clocked lower at 1.8GHz compared to the 2.3GHz chip on the ZenFone, but it should still offer impressive performance if Intel’s claims about its new chip are to be believed.
The P90 also runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, which will let the device make full use of the 64-bit processing capability of the SoC inside. The phone has a 13-megapixel rear camera on the back with optical image stabilization, a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM (which is considerably lower than the whopping 4GB of RAM on the ZenFone 2), a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB of internal storage, LTE-Advanced connectivity (up to 150Mbps), and a huge 4,000mAh battery that Lenovo claims is good for up to two days of usage.
The Lenovo P90 will be made available in red, white and black starting next month. Pricing is reportedly set at $499, and the phone will go up for sale on its manufacturer’s official website. Consumers in the US won’t find much luck getting hold of the handset unless they get it imported from outside, as Lenovo has no plans to offer the P90 on any major stateside carriers, but it should be making its way to the company’s important markets, like China and India.
