Lenovo's new P90 smartphone is 64-bit, Intel and Android 5.0 Lollipop

Lenovo is at CES 2015 with a whole host of new devices, one of which is this, the new P90 smartphone. The headline news here is that we're looking at the first smartphone to utilise Intel's new 64-bit CPU and LTE Advanced modem.

It's not the smallest Android phone you're going to see this year, coming in with a 5.5-inch, 1080p display. But with that size comes a pretty enormous battery, 4000mAh to be precise. Other notable specs include 32GB of onboard storage, 2GB of RAM and Android 5.0 Lollipop with Lenovo's own Vibe UI 2.0 running on top.

Round the back we're looking at a 13MP camera with OIS, partnered by a 5MP shooter round the front with a bunch of beautifying selfie features. If you're into that sort of thing.

The P90 will be available in Pearl White, Onyx Black and Lava Red and will be available from February with pricing still to be confirmed. We'll be taking a closer look at the P90 later this week from Las Vegas, so keep your eyes peeled for that. In the mean time check out the full press release for this and Lenovo's other mobile releases below.

  • surprised they didn't go with 3gb of RAM :P
  • Would have been even better if they went with 4 gb. The biggest leap in performance for the 64 bit chips is at 4 gb.
  • Whatever.
  • you believe that, don't you...?
  • Sounds like a load of lipschitz to me. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I can run Windows 8 in 1 gig of ram, there's something very wrong with Android if 3 gigs isn't' enough.
  • This. Sent from my Nexus 6
  • But RAM never hurt anyone :P Posted via the Android Central App
  • Running the OS and running a lot of programs or apps at once is very different, I have 16 gig in my windows PC
  • That huge battery life tho. If Lenovo was a fast as Moto with their updates, I would gladly choose this phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • And if it didn't have a custom UI as well.
  • What's the difference between Lenovo and Moto now?
  • Moto may be owned by Lenovo now, it the two brands are still very different on terms of internals, design language and UI. They also still serve different markets at this point. Sent from my Nexus 5, behind six proxies
  • Give me these specs with the Nexus 5 and I'm sold.
  • +1 Posted via Android Central App
  • +2 Posted via Android Central App on The Nexus 5
  • +3 (-1*2/6)+2
  • Let's hope Lenovo doesn't make motorola go with Intel for their next gen phones. Qualcomm processors are still far ahead Intel's mobile tablet/phone processors. Posted via the Android Central App on the 2nd Gen. Moto X
  • In terms of power, Intel is ahead with a comfortable lead. In terms of efficiency, Qualcomm is. What I can't wait to see is some benchmarks of the Core M series and the new Cherry Trail series against Snapdragon.
  • Let me guess, it won't be available here in the U.S.
  • Why would it. The sales number here would probably be in the 1,000s......if not the hundreds. Sent from my Nexus 6
  • But does it have a top mounted horizontal feeding magazine? Wubba lubba dub dub!
  • I do not like the capacitive buttons *and* the fact that they are out of order. I hope that Moto phones don't pick up that trait from Lenovo.
  • Yeah, there's no reason for dedicated function buttons.
    Phone manufacturers would do better to just allow the OS to display them (as is done on Nexus devices).
    Makes for a cleaner device, and a more 'future proof' interface. All that is needed, is the power button (and arguably the volume rocker for recovery mode access).
  • And to go with the backwards capacitive buttons, the power button is on the left side. Perfect!
  • Is this the Cherry Trail Atom CPU or Bay Trail?
  • Was tempted for a split-second.... but then I saw the physical hardware buttons. :-(
  • I will always buy a phone with capacitive buttons. I just don't like the on screen buttons. Especially Lollipop ASOP buttons. Posted via HTC One on Sprint
  • I hate the the fact that OEM's are shitting all over material design..... Sent from my Nexus 6
  • Why? Not everyone likes or wants material design(myself included). You think that would be good for consumers if every phone available gave you the exact same experience?
  • I agree. I hate the material design look. Posted via HTC One on Sprint
  • So is Apple's lawyers ok with everyone using rounded squares as icons now? Both ASUS and Lenovo's icons sure look like iOS icons.
  • Great! They have lollipop running on a 64bit atom then they should have lollipop ready for the yoga 2 1050f

  • For P90 ( as i see on http://kliknklik.com ) , it's important to note that the benefit of a 64-bit Atom processor over a 32-bit Atom processor is significantly smaller than the benefit of moving from the 32-bit ARMv7 architecture to the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture. The P90 also comes with an XMM 7262 modem, which is part of Intel's first globally-supported LTE-Advanced platform.
  • Lenovo is the best, i usually compare the price in http://katalog.or.id/harga/handphone-dan-gadget/lenovo-p90.html So i get cheap price for Lenovo P90 :D
