Lenovo recently launched the K8 Note to bolster its K series of smartphones along with a major step to ditch its Vibe Pure UI for the stock Android interface. Ahead of its launch, Lenovo was also reported to be working on another K series smartphone, dubbed K8 Plus, that got listed on a benchmark listing website. Lenovo India has now confirmed the launch of K8 Plus on Twitter. Besides, Flipkart has officially announced that the smartphone will be unveiled on September 6, and exclusively sold on the e-commerce website in India.
On Tuesday, Lenovo India posted a teaser video of K8 Plus on Twitter, showing a dedicated media button on the left side of the smartphone. The tagline that accompanies the video teaser reads, “Do you look at your smartphone and always #KraveForMore? It’s time to end that with the new and powerful #LenovoK8Plus. Coming soon!”.
The upcoming Lenovo K8 Plus is going to be a mid-range smartphone, Flipkart said in its release – however the exact price will only be revealed at the time of launch. Lenovo will also be going ahead with its latest move to ship stock Android to this smartphone, with the latest Nougat version. Moreover, Flipkart says that the smartphone is also expected to sport a dual rear camera setup, as per a social media teaser posted by Lenovo that shows Bokeh effect in action. However at the time of writing, we could not find such a post on Lenovo’s social handles. The Lenovo K8 Note bears dual rear cameras, and so it does seem likely that another smartphone in the same series has the same feature.
As we mentioned, the Lenovo K8 Plus was spotted on popular benchmarking website, Geekbench, where some of its specifications were revealed. The smartphone can be expected to come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 (MT6757CD) SoC. The benchmark listing of the Lenovo K8 Plus also disclosed that it might sport 3GB of RAM, in addition to aforementioned specs.
