Back in 2013, Lenovo had a smartphone called the Lenovo Vibe Z which was the Chinese company’s first LTE-enabled smartphone. However it looks like Lenovo will not be resting on its laurels as thanks to a benchmark sighting of a certain Lenovo K7t, it seems that Lenovo will be looking to compete with the best of the best with a 2K smartphone of its down. Thanks to the benchmark, it has been revealed that the Lenovo K7t will sport a 2560×1440 display which appears to be the upcoming standard of high-end smartphones for 2014. Vivo has done it with the Xplay 3S, Oppo with the Find 7, and there have been rumors that Samsung could be looking to do the same thing with the Galaxy S5 as well.
Other hardware specifications that was revealed in the benchmark suggested that the Lenovo K7t could be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.26GHz, 3GB of RAM, a 16GB of onboard storage (was not mentioned if it could be expanded via microSD), a 5MP front-facing camera, a 13MP front-facing camera, and appears to run on Android 4.4.1 KitKat, although hopefully it might be upgraded to Android 4.4.2 KitKat upon its release. No telling when Lenovo might announce such a device, but if we had to guess, MWC 2014 would be a safe bet. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but do check back with us then for the details.
