A company really making a push for mobile devices is Intel. The personal computer industry is constantly in question and the company sees an opening in mobile. So resources are really being poured into the development of modems and processors. The first handset to feature both an LTE-Advanced modem and a 64-bit Atom processor from Intel is the Lenovo P90.
The P90 is backed by an Atom Z3560 processor that is, yes, based on 64-bit architecture. Oddly, Lenovo is shipping the P90 with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box rather than Android 5.0 Lollipop (which is built for 64-bit support). The XMM modem from Intel allows the P90 to download up to 150Mbps and upload 50Mbps. The Lenovo P90 will perform as quickly as it can download/upload.
Lenovo chose to go with a 5.5-inch display with 1920×1080 resolution, putting the pixel density at 400 pixels per inch evenly. The rear camera is 13MP and the front-facing camera is 5MP. The former does feature optical image stabilization.
Everything is packed into a handset that measures just over 0.30 inches. The extra thickness when compared to other handsets is noticeable because the P90 features a 4000mAh battery. Really, Lenovo developed no slouch.
