Lenovo launches affordable K320t dual camera smartphone with 18:9 display
Lenovo is better known for the laptop and PC divisions that were bought from IBM, but the Chinese company recently broke into the smartphone market, mostly with entry-level and mid-range models. Lenovo does not usually stick to the norm, but it looks like the 18:9 display trend caught the company’s eye and 2018 will bring the first budget Lenovo smartphone with 2:1 aspect ratio. The K320t was just announced in China, and it features a 5.7-inch 1440 x 720 18:9 display, although the other specs seem unimpressive.
There are two versions of the K320t, both powered by a quad-core Spreadtrum SC7731 SoC clocked at 1.3 GHz. The difference between the two models is 2 GB versus 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB versus 32 GB of internal storage. The imaging capabilities of the K320t are quite surprising for its price-range. It features an 8 MP sensor on the front and a dual camera setup with 8 MP + 2 MP sensors and LED flash on the back, which also integrates a fingerprint scanner.
As for pricing, Lenovo mentioned that the 3 GB RAM model will be priced at ~$155 and will begin shipping on January 4th, but it is not clear if any of the variants will be released to the Western markets.
