Lenovo’s finally made the K8 Note public after weeks of hype and teasers revealed key details about the phone. The latest entry to the brand’s popular K series will be an Amazon-exclusive and is set to hit the e-commerce site on August 18 at 12 pm.
Like its predecessors, the K8 Note targets the mid-range market sector with price tags of Rs 12999 for the 3GB/32GB model and Rs 13999 for the 4GB/64GB version. Unlike its predecessors, the new offering boasts of a pair of dual cameras on its back.
The module consists of 13MP and 5MP lenses, with the former handling photos and the latter taking care of depth sensing. Combined, the two can bring about DSLR-esque bokeh and depth-of-field effects. There’s a 13MP shooter up front as well, accompanied by what the company calls a ‘party flash’ to light up selfies in the dark.
The other big change Lenovo has brought about is the switch to pure Android. It’s completely abandoned Pure UI in favor of a stock version of Google’s OS, starting things out with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The company hasn’t stated whether it’ll be updating the handset to Android O, but it should ideally do so.
