Lenovo has added a new member to the popular “K” series of its handsets in India. The Lenovo K8 as it is labelled seems to be a strong mid-range contender at a low price of Rs 10,499. It adds to the recent K8 Plus and the K8 Note that comes with stock Android. The highlights of the phone include a P20 chipset, a 4,000 mAh battery, and a 5.2-inch screen.

The Lenovo K8 is made up of a metal body and is similar to that of the K8 Note in design. It boasts of the MediaTek Helio P20 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz coupled with a Mali T880 GPU. The 5.2-inch display is HD and is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass. We have to say, we expected a Full HD screen with this one. But the K8 disappoints in this respect. Moving ahead it is properly backed with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of Storage.
In terms of camera, the Lenovo K8 houses a 13 MP shooter at the back with LED flash. While the front has an 8 MP shooter. It doesn’t have a dual camera setup that comes with the K8 Plus and K8 Note. Lenovo endows the K8 too with the unadulterated vanilla Android that we love so much. That is a big plus for the device. Finally, all the package is kept well lit by a 4,000 mAh juice pack.
Other vital connectivity options include 4G, VoLTE, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2. There is a fingerprint reader sitting at the back and the handset supports OTG. The Lenovo K8 will be available to buy in brick mortar stores across India. There is a Venom black and Fine Gold colour choice for potential buyers.
