Lenovo introduced the 10.1-inch IdeaPad K1 tablet back in 2011 and now it seems like the 3-year old device may soon get a refresh. This has not been confirmed by the Chinese company yet, but benchmark results of a device called Lenovo K1 HD (2014) were recently added to the GFXBench database.
The scores obtained by this new Lenovo tablet place it in the mid-range segment of the market and its processor could be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 or slower. Unfortunately, the GFXBench database entry does not contain any information regarding the slate's features and specs, the only bit of information revealing the operating system loaded on the device - Android - without revealing its version number. On the other hand, since the set of benchmarks ran includes 1080p tests, it is clear that the Lenovo K1 HD will have a display with Full HD resolution or higher.
Back in 2011, the old Lenovo IdeaPad K1 hit the market with a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, a TFT capacitive touchscreen with 1,280X800 pixels and 149 ppi, and was loaded with Android 3.1 Honeycomb. It also had a rather bulky design. To keep up with its potential competitors, the refreshed K1 should come with Android 4.4 KitKat, a high-quality and high-resolution display, decent performance and battery life, but also an attractive, slim design.
If everything goes well, more information about the Lenovo K1 HD (2014) should become available soon.
