Lenovo has Launched the New Lenovo K8 Smartphone, Priced at Rs 10,499
In just two months, Lenovo has launched three smartphones in India. The Lenovo K8 Note with dual cameras, MediaTek Helio X23 chip; the Lenovo K8 Plus with dual cameras MediaTek Helio P25 chip, and today, the smaller of the series, the Lenovo K8 is here.
The Lenovo K8 is priced at Rs. 10,499 and will be available only in retail stores. The K8 Note is an amazon exclusive phone while the K8 Plus is launched on Flipkart.
Lenovo changed itself as a brand this year because nothing went the company’s way. The Lenovo P2 was a good device this year but it was failed with poor marketing stuff and less speed software updates.
One thing which comes to mind when we think of Lenovo this year is the transition of the brand to become more like Motorola. Lenovo removed Vibe UI and used stock Android in the Lenovo K8 series to fasten the update process.
The Lenovo K8 is the third smartphone in the K8 series and it also comes with stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The K8 will receive Android Oreo too sometime in 2018, but Lenovo did not reveal the exact month.

Lenovo K8 comes with least specifications when compared to Lenovo K8 Note and K8 Plus. The K8 has a 5.2-inch HD screen, and Lenovo is asking Rs. 10,499 for an HD screen. Lenovo at least should have gone with a Full HD screen.
This smartphone is fuelled by the MediaTek Helio P20 chip, a slightly less powerful version of the Helio P25 chip used on the Lenovo K8 Plus. This chipset draws power from a 4000 mAh battery inside.
The Lenovo K8 is mated with 3 GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can also be expanded up to 128 GB with a micro-SD card.
