Lenovo announced on Wednesday that it has started rolling out the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for its popular K4 Note smartphone in India. The software update is being pushed out in a phased manner, which means not all users will receive the update at once but over a span of the next few days.
Android Marshmallow update for Lenovo K4 Note weighs 1.6GB, and users are recommended to use a secure and reliable Wi-Fi to avoid data overages or lost connections during the installation. After upgrading the device with the latest OTA, users will be able to access new features that are a part of Android M software, including revamped app permissions, Google Now on Tap, Doze and adoptable storage.
Lenovo said the K4 Note is the sixth smartphone in the company's lineup to receive Android Marshmallow so far. The company said that Android M has already been pushed to Lenovo K3 Note, A7000, P1, Vibe S1 and Vibe X3, but the X3 smartphone users are yet to receive the OTA update. Other devices such as K5 Plus and P1m are yet to get the Android M confirmation. The latest update will continue to run on top of the company's own VibeUI.
On the sidelines of announcing the software update news for K4 Note owners, Lenovo also said that it has sold 600,000 units of the budget smartphone and 150,000 units of the ANT VR headsets in India so far. Lenovo K4 Note was launched alongside ANT VR headset in January, which offers TheaterMax technology for a seamless large screen experience, surround sound and responsive 3D.
The K4 Note was one of the earliest premium budget smartphones in India and offers worthy specifications for the price of just Rs. 11,999. It is powered by a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek CPU, 3GB RAM, 16GB storage, a fingerprint scanner, Dolby Atmos speakers and a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Lenovo K4 Note is equipped with a 13MP sensor on the rear with dual LED flash and a 5MP sensor on the front. A 3,300mAh battery completes the package. The handset has been selling generously since its launch. In February, the Chinese smartphone-maker had said it had sold 180,000 units of the K4 Note in flash sales before it started open sales for the device.
