The Geekbench stats show that the new K8 Note will run on Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box. Powering the device will be a deca-core MediaTekek Helio X20 processor and 4 GB of RAM. Other rumoured specs are a 5.5-inch display and 32 GB internal storage.
The Lenovo Note series has been a budget offering of super fast devices and the K8 Note looks all set to continue the trend with the rumoured MediaTek Helio X20 chipset under the hood. Lenovo India itself has gone all out this time, teasing its followers that the new-age fast device will kill the ordinary speed. Lenovo India’s social media has been hard at work trending the #MyNeedForSpeed, encouraging people to choose their device for its lightning fast speed.
Lenovo K6 Note was released back in December 2016 powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The K6 Note was well-received for its pricing and performance. It was widely reported that the K7 Note will succeed the K6 Note but Lenovo seems to have dropped the idea because of the potential ‘Note 7’ reference. The K8 Note will be K6 Note’s India-exclusive successor and the rumoured specs surely back that up. It is also reported that the K8 Note will be manufactured at Lenovo’s Chennai-based plant.
The Lenovo K8 Note seems to be the ideal successor of the snappy K6 Note if you go by the specs at least. We will hold our judgment and wait to get our hands on the device that will launch on August 9th in India. What are your thoughts on the new K8 Note? Let us know in the comments below.
UPDATE – Lenovo has sent out press invites for the launch of the ‘killer’ K8 Note on 9th August at 11:30 am with the #KillerNote.
