Following its unveiling at CES at the start of the year, we now have a date for the launch of Lenovo's Intel Medfield-powered K800 smartphone.

The phone has been confirmed to arrive through carrier China Unicom in late May via a message on Weibo by Intel's China chief Sean Maloney, in which he also said it will sport the company's new "Avatar Technology". We have no details on that to share just yet; inevitably Intel will provide us with more information closer to the launch.
