Lenovo has announced a new K8 Note smartphone at an event in the capital on Wednesday.

Lenovo K8 Note is an Amazon India exclusive smartphone and will be available from 12 noon on August 18. The company is also offering an additional 4G data for Idea subscribers, discounts on Kindle books and Moto Sports Headphones as a part of the launch offer.

Lenovo has opted for a MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor for its K8 Note which is clocked at 2.3GHz. This is backed by two RAM and onboard storage variants of 4GB, 64GB and 3GB, 32GB respectively.

Users have the option to expand the storage on the K8 Note via microSD card. The company has included a separate card slot in the smartphone and not the Hybrid ones that one can find these days in almost every dual-SIM supported smartphone.

The K8 Note runs on stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat which is a refresher from the company’s earlier bloated VibeUI.

Also onboard are Dolby Atmos powered speaker units on the smartphone.

There’s a fingerprint sensor below the camera modules as well for faster unlocking of K8 Note.
