Earlier this week,Lenovo india has showcased teaser of its upcoming phone, the Lenovo k8 note.Today Lenovo india posted the launch date for the same on its twitter handle.
The official launch date confirmation Lenovo comes after a series of mathematical-based quizzes Lenovo India posted on its social media account, asking its followers to guess for the next ‘Note’ smartphone will be called, all pointing to the number 8. Interestingly, Lenovo india’s confirmation points to what could be the K8 Note, which is a little surprising considering it would mean may be the company is planning to skip on the K7 Note. Chinese mobile manufacturer OnePlus in the past also did something similar by launching the OnePlus 5 after the OnePlus 3T, albeit for different reasons. Samsung also did something similar last year, with the Galaxy Note 7 – skipping the Galaxy Note 6 in an attempt to bring the Galaxy Note brand to the same number as its s series.
The reason behind going with ‘8’ is still unknown, but the number does suggest that the smartphone could sport a dual rear camera setup. To recall, the Lenovo K6 Note only featured a single rear camera, which makes it even more likely for the followup to get a dual camera module.
Recently, a benchmark listing of the Lenovo K8 Note surfaced online via GeekBench that reveals some key details of the upcoming ‘Killer Note’. According to the listing, the smartphone will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It will be powered by a 1.4GHz MediaTek Helio X20 processor and will be offered with 4GB of RAM, both of which are a bit of a jump compared to the K6 Note, which featured a Snapdragon 430 SoC and 3GB of RAM.
