The Lenovo K8 Note has finally made its way to the market, with a launch date decided for August 18 and it will be released via Amazon in India, the Note K8 will mark a turning point in Lenovo’s sales strategy and will be a good contender for the budget segment. Here are the top five features of the smartphone that make it stand out from the crowd.
One of the standout features of the phone is the main camera that features a 13MP camera and a 5MP depth sensing one for bokeh and portrait shots. The selfie camera up front is a 13MP snapper as well.
The phone will boast of high-end internals in the segment as it comes with the MediaTekHelio X23 10-core processor coupled with either 3GB or 4GB memory and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The smartphone will also come with dual SIM capability and Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box. Something that Lenovo have also added is a dedicated music key that can be assigned for any other functions set by the user as well. The phone is also splash resistant.
Complementing the fine hardware features of the device, the Lenovo K8 Note will feature a nearly stock Android experience and will be the first phone from Lenovo to ditch the company’s trademark Vibe Pure UI. The stock Android interface and its use in following smartphones released by Lenovo will aim to improve user experience and deliver better quality updates as well as navigation in the phone as vanilla Android has been known to provide a more stable experience without bloat. For better entertainment, the phone also comes equipped with Dolby Atmos and TheatreMax.
Another stand-out feature of the phone is the battery, that, compared to most other smartphones in this segment, features a 4,000mAh unit that can also support Turbo Charging. For power users, this phone will be nothing short of a dream and could well last for more than a day’s worth of continuous use.
Pricing will be phone’s key USP, being sold at $203 for the 32GB variant with 2GB of RAM and $219 for the 64GB variant with 4GB of RAM. For the kind of specifications that it offers and for the kind of performance that it promises, the Lenovo K3 Note is easily the best entry-level smartphone of the year.
