Lenovo announces K8 Note with dual camera in India

Today, Lenovo launched the K8 Note in India. The phone will be available exclusively through Amazon India starting August 18, 12:00PM IST.

The K8 Note has a regular 5.5 inch IPS LCD Full HD display with 2.5D glass, same as last year’s model. The K8 Note gets a major bump in the processing department with MediaTek’s 10-core Helio X23 processor, making it the most powerful device in it’s price range, at least on paper. It will come in two configurations: 3/32GB and 4/64GB verion.

 

On the back is a dual camera setup. The main camera is 13 megapixels and the second is a 5 megapixel depth sensor for blurring the background of your images. On the front is a 13 megapixel selfie camera.  The K8 Note has a massive 4000mAh battery but also adds support for fast charging. The software is the latest Android 7.1.1 and Lenovo has promised timely updates for this device.

The 3/32GB variant is priced at INR 12,999 ($203) and the 4/64GB variant at INR 13,999 ($219). The phone will be available in two colors, Venom Black and Fine Gold.
