Last week, Lenovo had announced to host an event on 25 June in New Delhi. Initially, the company did not give any clue about the event, but a few days later, it began a promotional campaign "In the Name of K3", confirming that the K3 Note will indeed be released on Thursday.
Lenovo's 'In the Name of K3' had asked fans to come up with creative excuses to throw away their old phones to buy the new K3 Note. The response from the public was so overwhelming that more than 1,100 people literally buried their handsets and posted their soiled phones' images online [HERE].
The popularity of the to-be-released Lenovo smartphone has a lot to do with its top-of-the-line hardware. To provide a better perspective about the smartphone, we have listed key attributes that users would find useful while planning to buy K3 Note.

Lenovo K3 Note comes with 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) IPS display having a resolution of 401 ppi (pixels per inch), guaranteeing clarity during high-resolution video play back.
SoC (System on Chip):
Lenovo K3 Note houses an efficient 1.7GHz Mediatek Octa-core processor. More the number of cores, higher the efficiency of the device. Multiple cores can run numerous instructions at the same time, increasing overall speed for programmess amenable to parallel computing. So, there will less chances of over-heating and fast battery draining.
Furthermore, it is backed by Mali-T760MP2 graphic engine, 2GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt memory (expandable up to 32GB).
With 4G-LTE connectivity support, users can enjoy super-speed internet with 150/50mbps download/upload speed.
Lenovo sports feature-rich 13mp camera on the rear-side with dual-LED flash, auto-focus, Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and full HD video capturing ability. On the front, it ships with a 5mp snapper capable of taking good selfies.
Lenovo K3 Note houses a high capacity 3000 mAh battery, which can run the phone for up to 36 hours' talk time and close to 750 hours (that's 31 days) in standby mode.
Rumour has it that the Lenovo K3 Note might hit Indian stores with a sub-₹10,000 price tag. If this turns out to be true, we believe K3 Note will become the cheapest smartphone to boast of full HD display and intensify the price-war among smartphone makers in India.
