Lenovo K8 and K8 Plus India Launch Confirmed For September 6 Via Flipkart Exclusive
Lenovo has unveiled the K8 Note in India earlier this month, but that isn't the only member of the K8 series that the Chinese company has planned. In fact, the K8 Plus was also reportedly seen in a benchmark a few weeks back, but there will be the third phone in this line too.
According to NDTV, on Tuesday, Lenovo India has posted a teaser video of K8 Plus on Twitter, suggesting a dedicated media button on the left side of the device. The tagline that accompanies the video teaser on the Twitter, "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 Android Nougat version.
Moreover, Flipkart claims that the Lenovo K8 Plus will also 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, there is no such post seen on Lenovo's social handles. The Lenovo K8 Note carries dual rear cameras, and so it does seem probable that another smartphone in the same series has the same feature, as reported by BGR.
As mentioned earlier, the Lenovo K8 Plus was spotted the on popular benchmarking website, Geekbench, where some of its specs 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 listing of the Lenovo K8 Plus also reveals that it might sport 3GB of RAM, in addition to aforesaid specs.
