Lenovo P90 powered by Intel’s 64-bit Atom

Lenovo P90 is the first smartphone powered by Intel’s 64-bit Atom

Intel may have prominently announced imminent shipment of Cherry Trail devices, built on 14nm technology, but Lenovo is tapping the company’s 22nm silicon for this effort. The 22nm Z3560 SoC at the heart of the P90 is based on Intel’s Moorefield design, with a quad-core CPU and a burst clock of up to 1.83GHz. The GPU is based on Imagination Technologies’ G6430 — the same GPU inside the iPhone 5S. While no longer cutting-edge, it’s still more than sufficient for most tasks and mobile gaming.

P90 will pack a 5.5-inch screen with a 1920x1080p resolution with a 400 PPI, support for five-finger multi-touch, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. The battery inside the P90 is a massive 4000 mAH — far larger than the battery on devices like the iPhone 6 Plus, which clocked in just under 3000 mAH.

The device will ship with Android 4.4 (KitKat) but presumably receive an Android 5.0 upgrade at some point in the future. Lenovo is aiming this device at the business segment rather than explicitly towards consumers, which is part of what’s driving the larger battery as well — at 4,000 mAH, the phone should be more than capable of delivering all-day performance.
