It looks like the Snapdragon 600 equipped Samsung Galaxy S4 already has some serious competition in the processor performance arena. The new Lenovo K900 IdeaPhone with Intel's Clover Trail+ processor technology actually outperformed the SGS4 in recent AnTuTu benchmarks. As you can see in the pic above, the K900 scored 25,827 in the benchmark, which just edges out the SGS4 by a tiny percentage. Here's a recap of specs for this device just in case you are intrigued,
- 5.5 inch FHD (1080 x 1920 ) LCD display with 401ppi pixel density
- Dual-core 2GHz Intel Atom Clover Trail+ processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of native storage (and NO microSD slot)
- 13MP rear Sony Exmor BSI camera camera that can capture video in 1080p
- 2MP front-camera
- 2500mAh battery
- Android 4.2
It's always good to see competition in the market place, and especially from a prime-mover like Intel. Keep in mind that this chip from Intel is a dual-core processor built on the last generation 32nm Atom based SoC. It's mind-boggling to think what Intel will be able to do with their chips when they hit the same current-gen 22nm process (or even the next-next-gen 16nm) and a quad-core setup.
It may take "Chipzilla" a little while to shift gears, but once they do, their competition better watch out!
On a sidenote... the K900 is a pretty good-looking device as well! Share your thoughts.
