Lenovo is finally getting ready to take its K3 Note phablet to markets other than China. The device was released in the company’s home market back in March, but it looks like it’s headed to India soon.
Lenovo has just announced an event for June 25 in India, during which it will showcase the K3 Note for the subcontinent. That’s also when we should find out how much it will cost in India, and when it will be in stores.
Over in China, the K3 Note goes for CNY 899, which right now translates into approximately INR 9,302, $144, or €128. So this is clearly one affordable smartphone. We assume Lenovo will want to have it below INR 10,000 in India so that it can properly compete in that market.
The Lenovo K3 Note has a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, a 5 MP front-facing unit, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It’s powered by the MediaTek MT6752 SoC with 1.7 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop underneath Lenovo’s own Vibe UI.
