Uh-oh, Intel is in trouble… again. As if the recent benchmark cheating accusations were not enough to put a dent into the seemingly impressive advancement of the company’s mobile chips, it appears one of Intel’s most notable partners is looking away from Santa Clara.

Lenovo K900

Lenovo, whose latest flagship phone packs an Atom Z2560 (aka Clover Trail+) CPU, might be relying on Qualcomm for its “next big thing”. A somewhat mysterious K910 device has been allegedly benchmarked in AnTuTu recently, scoring a decent 30,059 points while rocking a 2.2 GHz processor.

Said processor is almost definitely a quad-core Snapdragon 800 unit, while the K910 can only be one thing – a follow-up to the Intel-powered K900. There’s also a good chance we’re dealing with the same handheld that leaked to the press a couple of weeks ago under the K6 codename.

Unfortunately, aside from the very probable Snapdragon 800 SoC inside the K910, we have very little proof concerning other specs. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean seems like a certainty, as does dual SIM support, but that’s about it.

Lenovo-K910

If we were to make a few educated guesses, we’d assume the K910 won’t stretch too much from its predecessor’s excellent design and come with an equally slender profile, plus a Full HD screen measuring either 5 or 5.5 inches in diagonal.

Getting back to the AnTuTu result for a second, we should mention it paints the picture of a zippy, but not record-breaking device. Remember, we’ve seen other Snapdragon 800 phones, like the Galaxy S4 LTE-A and Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra, score as much as 34,000 points, so K910’s 30,000 might be due to insufficiently optimized software or something like that.

Or, you know, the whole thing could be phony, in which case we got all worked up for nothing. Either way, I wonder what are Intel’s bosses thinking right about now.
