The Lenovo K6 Note was launched at the IFA 2016 Tradeshow in Berlin last September and was released in India by December of 2016 to compete in the Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets in India in another attempt by the Beijing based company to dominate the budget smartphone market. It is reported to be priced at Rs. 13,999. It’s noticeable that Lenovo has been releasing budget smartphones with new models from multiple series in a bare difference in mere months, as they released the Lenovo Vibe K5 in August after the release of Lenovo Zuk Z2 and this was followed by the launch of K6 Power in the last week of November before releasing the K6 Note. The Lenovo K6 Note offers a metal back and glass front body with plastic components in the top and back bottom area and boasting its Theater Max technology for virtual reality experience and the Dolby Atmos for a good sound experience. According to Lenovo, the K6 Note is the first of the company’s K-series smartphones to be exclusively available through offline channels, and is available at 15,000 retail stores in India.
This new phablet by Lenovo is crafted in classic design and an almost identical twin of the K6 Power and weighs at almost 170 grams or 6.00 ounces, though a difference in screen size is noticeable. The Lenovo K6 Note is a sturdy one and well-built and features a dual bottom speakers with Dolby Atmos features. The display department is equipped with 5.5 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display in 1920 X 1080 resolution with 401 pixels per inch density. It runs in Android’s Operating System of v6.0 Marshmallow, but there’s no clear indicator that it will receive at future update to Android 7.0 Nougat. The device heart chipset is powered by Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 architected in Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex A53 CPU, while the graphics department is powered by Adreno 505. The working memory is at 3 GB, while the internal flash is available in 32 GB with support for the memory expansion up to 128 GB through micro SD card. The camera department is made up of 16 megapixel rear shooter and based on Lenovo, the 16 MP fast-focusing rear camera boasts dual CCT (Colour Correlated Temperature) flash technology, which helps avoid over-exposed or washed-out photos. The selfie shooter is an 8 megapixel one that can capture decent well- detailed images in generally nice color. In terms of battery life, the Lenovo K6 Note delivers a 4000 mAh non-removable battery juice that’s sufficient enough to last for a day of activities. The Lenovo K6 Note is a dual Nano-SIM smartphone with connectivity options that include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, FM, 3G, and 4G, with support for Band 40, which is used by some LTE networks in India. The sensors on the phone are proximity, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and gyroscope aside from the fingerprint sensor for phone security.
This new Lenovo K6 Note from Lenovo is an affordable phone with a large battery life that delivers a good amount of working memory in 32 GB of internal storage in an attempt of Lenovo to reach the customers who likes purchasing a smartphone through offline channels in India. Though it faced a tough competition with the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, and the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime, as well as the Moto G4 or the Moto G4 Plus as the said device delivers a more powerful performance in a much better design, and provides a great overall value for the money.
