Lenovo K3 Note phablet officially announced
Lenovo was expected to unveil the Vibe Z3 Pro smartphone yesterday, but it turns out that the only device that the Chinese company announced at its March 23rd press event was the K3 Note, a budget phablet designed to compete directly against the Meizu M1 Note. The Lenovo K3 Note is listed at a price of CNY899 ( about $145), but the hardware specs are quite for good for this price range.
As far as the design is concerned, the Lenovo K3 Note stands out thanks to a circular bulge on the back and a bright yellow plastic build. The phablet is 7.6mm thin and weighs 150 grams. The Lenovo K3 Note features a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels (Full HD), a MediaTek MT6752 chipset with a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of integrated storage space, expandable by up to 32GB via the integrated microSD card slot. In the camera department, the Lenovo K3 Note is equipped with a 13MP primary camera with dual-tone LED flash, and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. Despite the rather thin body, the Lenovo K3 Note comes with a 3,000 mAh battery. The K3 Note also features LTE compatibility and dual-SIM support.
At the moment, it is unknown if the Lenovo K3 Note will make it outside of the Asian continent, although this doesn't seem very likely. Aside from the "standard" version priced at $145, Lenovo will also offer a special K3 Note model with an upgraded speaker for the slightly higher price of $160.
