Lenovo added a new smartphone to their popular K series today with the launch of the K8 Note in India. The Lenovo K8 Note is the first Lenovo smartphone to come with a dual camera setup. Also, today they had the Global launch at New Delhi and the device will be announced in other countries soon.
The K8 Note comes with the metal build and is available in two colors: Venom Black and Fine Gold. It comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, it is powered by a Deca-core Helio X23 processor clocked at 2.3Ghz and is coupled with Mali T880 MP4 GPU. It comes in two variants, one with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage and the other with 4+64GB combination. The device is packed with pretty big 4000mAh battery that supports Turbo charging.
In the camera department, it comes with a dual camera(13MP+5MP) with dual LED flash, PureCel Plus sensor. Both the sensors work in seamless combination allowing users to take photographs with the depth of field and bokeh effect. There is a 13.0-megapixel selfie camera with a full light LED flash. Another highlight of the device is the software, as we had reported earlier the K8 Note comes with Stock Android experience instead of Vibe UI. Other features of the device include 4G VoLTE, rear fingerprint scanner, Splash Resistant (P2i Nano Coating) water repellent coating that protects it from spills. For multimedia enthusiasts the device has Lenovo’s TheatreMax and Dolby’s Atmos technology.
