Talk about the devices which heated up the sub-10k price segment, and the Lenovo K3 Note is sure to feature on anybody’s list. The K3 Note offered great specifications at a mouth-watering price point, and gave a tough competition to the likes of YU’s and Mi’s best budget devices.
Recently, the company launched the successor to the K3 Note. The K4 Note was long being hyped as a brilliant device, and the specifications that are being offered are pretty interesting to say the least.
The K4 Note comes with standard specifications that you would expect of any budget smartphone worth its salt. There’s 5.5-inches of screen real estate on the device that has a FHD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. The display has a wide viewing angle of 178 degree and is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The processor under the hood is a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6753 CPU, with a Mali T720 GPU. Although the processor by itself is pretty good – there’s a clock speed of 1.5 GHz – some people were expecting the device to come with a more powerful Helio X10 processor.
Nonetheless, any qualms regarding the processor are overlooked if the other specifications are considered – in the memory department there’s 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB of ROM which can be further expanded to upto 128GB. As far as optics are concerned, the rear shooter has a resolution of 13MP and the selfie camera has a resolution of 5MP.
The battery on the device is a 3,300 mAh one. The phone is capable of supporting dual SIM cards and can support 4G on both SIMs. Lenovo has also incorporated a fingerprint sensor into the back of the device.
The phone is evidently an audio centric device. There are two 5W Dolby Atmos surround sound speakers at the face of the device. Moreover, there are specialized software such as TheaterMax, a Lenovo configured 3-mic input system and a Wolfson WM8281 audio codec – all of which promise stellar audio quality when it comes to calling or even listening to music.
The operating system on the device is Android 5.1 Lollpop, with Lenovo’s own Vibe UI layered on top. There’s also NFC support – which was absent in the predecessor of this device.
Interesting bundles with the phone include the ANT VR headset – a virtual reality headset where the phone can be placed to enable the user to view VR based applications and content. This headset can be obtained by shelling out Rs. 1,299/-. There’s also a dedicated SkullCandy headset developed for the device which is sold separately at the same price as that of the VR Headset.
The Lenovo K4 Note will be up for sale on Amazon India from January 19th onwards. As of now, the company is selling the K4 Note and VR Headset bundle, and this bundle will cost Rs. 12,499.
