The Lenovo K3 Note, a 4G LTE budget phablet, was initially launched in China at CNY 899 (approximately Rs. 9,300). Notably, the Lenovo K3 Note smartphone was seen as a competition to the Meizu m1 note in China. Meizu, the Chinese handset manufacturer, last month launched its m1 note smartphone in India, priced at Rs. 11,999. While both devices have almost identical specifications, the key differentiator would be the pricing for the Indian market.
