Lenovo said that it will release the phone in China with China Unicom in the second quarter of this year. However at this moment company has not disclosed plans for its global release.

K800 will feature a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 8-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and a front camera for video chat. While other specs still remains unknown, we will update the same as and when it appears.

Intel said that it has a 1440mAh battery which delivers 8 hours of 3G talk time, and a full 5 hours of 3G web browsing with a 14-day standby time. It will be interesting to see the performance of K800 in terms of battery life as historically Intel’s processors tend to be power-sucking.
