Earlier this month, we reported Lenovo's plan to launch the K4 Note phablet, the successor to this year's sleeper hit the K3 Note, in the first week of January. The company has been teasing the smartphone on social media for a while now. While much about its features is still under wraps, the company has now teased exactly how much RAM the phablet will ship with.
In a teaser posted on Twitter, the company has confirmed that the K4 Note will have 3GB of RAM. This is a substantial improvement over the K3 Note, which sports 2GB of RAM. If these teasers are anything to go by, the Lenovo K4 Note is all set to be a well-specced phablet in the affordable segment. In the meanwhile, our company sources have revealed Lenovo currently plans to launch the K4 Note in India on January 5.
Lenovo has earlier hinted at a metal body and a fingerprint sensor for the K4 Note. Notably, the K3 Note lacks both of these features. The K4 Note might actually need these features to replicate, if not beat, the footprints of the Lenovo K3 Note's success.
Lenovo told Gadgets 360 earlier this month that it has sold over 1.2 million units of the K3 Note in India. The phablet was launched in the country in June 2015 at a price point of Rs. 9,999. For a refresh, the K3 Note sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display. It is powered by MediaTek's MT6752 SoC clocked at 1.7GHz octa-core coupled with 2GB of RAM. On the storage front, the handset comes with 16GB of inbuilt memory that can be expanded via a microSD card (up to 32GB).
Other features of the handset include a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. There's a 2900mAh removable battery. The dual-SIM capable smartphone offers support for 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi and other standard connectivity features.
