Lenovo launched the K3 Note in June this year. The handset was the first phone from a major OEM to carry Full HD screen for less than Rs.10,000, and along with it carried other impressive specifications enough to set the ball rolling in this hugely competitive Indian smartphone market.
At the launch, though black, white and yellow variants were unveiled, Lenovo chose to go ahead with just black one for the first flash sale, with white getting introduced a week later. Since then, Lenovo has sold out over 2 lakh units, with each flash sale lasting few seconds. Probably in a move to sustain the momentum, Lenovo has gone ahead and announced the availability of Yellow color variant of K3 Note for the same price of Rs.9,999 on Flipkart on Tuesday, August 11th.
Lenovo has been on a roll with low-to-mid-range segment smartphones, starting with the Lenovo A6000 and following it up with the A6000 Plus, A7000 and K3 Note. For Rs.9,999 ($155) the Lenovo K3 Note comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, and powered by a 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6752 octa-core 64-bit capable processor paired with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage which can be further expanded using a microSD card. There’s a 13MP camera on the rear and a 5MP camera in the front. On the connectivity front, the dual-SIM capable K3 Note supports 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, and other standard options.
The Lenovo K3 Note has received mixed reviews so far from reviewers and users. Although the phone carries a FHD screen, it’s not comparable to the likes of Mi 4i or Meizu M2 Note. Having said that, many seem quite happy and content with its performance in general.
