Lenovo recently announced a brand new mid-range smartphone, the Lenovo K3 Note. As its name suggests, the K3 Note is a new addition to Lenovo’s Lemon series of smartphone, and is a larger sibling to the Lenovo K3. However, not only is it bigger in size, it is also more powerful in terms of specs.
First up, the Lenovo K3 Note features a 5.5” Full HD display at the front, and the same lemon yellow back cover that looks similar to the original K3. In addition to that, there’s a circular bump located right in the middle to give the K3 Note a rather unique look.
On the inside, it is powered by a 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6752 octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage (up to 32GB via microSD). That’s an improvement over the 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor and 1GB RAM found on the K3. Other specs include 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter, a larger 3,000mAh battery, dual SIM support (one for 2G/3G and LTE while the other is GSM only), and measures at 7.6mm thin with a weight of about 150 grams.
There are two versions of the K3 Note – the basic one costs 899 Yuan (about RM530), while the more premium version that features a “ceramic piece vibration speaker” for better audio output retails at 999 Yuan (about RM590). Considering its specs, this is definitely something worth looking forward to if it ever comes to Malaysia.
