Lenovo, after launching the K8 Note and K8 Plus, has now launched the third K8-series smartphone, the K8. As expected, the Lenovo K8 is the lowest specced smartphone in the series, and is priced at Rs. 10,499. Unlike the other two Lenovo K8-series smartphones, the all-new Lenovo K8 was announced via Twitter. The smartphone will be an offline-exclusive and is now available to buy via retail stores.
The Lenovo K8 is the only smartphone in the series which doesn't sport a dual camera setup. At the back, there's a 13-megapixel single sensor with PDAF and LED flash. To compare, the Lenovo K8 Note sports a 13-megapixel primary sensor along with a 5-megapixel depth sensor, which allows the smartphone to capture depth-of-field effects. The K8 Plus also comes with a similar dual camera setup.
The Lenovo K8 is powered by an octa-core Mediatek Helio P20 processor clocked at 2.3GHz coupled with 3GB of RAM. There's 32GB inbuilt storage on board which can be further expanded. It features a 5.2-inch IPS HD (720x1280 pixels) display with 2.5D glass. The smartphone sports a fingerprint scanner at the back. The Lenovo K8 also sports an 8-megapixel front camera with front flash.
Similar to the other two Lenovo K8-series smartphones, the new K8 also runs on stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. It packs a 4000mAh non-removable battery which the company claims can deliver up to 1.5 days of usage. It measures 147.9x73.7x8.5mm and weighs 165 grams. It comes with a single speaker that is powered by Dolby Atmos. The Lenovo K8 also comes with a dedicated Music Key located on the left panel. The dual-SIM smartphone supports both Nano-SIMs and comes with 4G with VoLTE support. It will be available in Venom Black and Fine Gold colours.
