Lenovo had recently launched the metal-clad K8 Note in India and now, the company is gearing up to release another K8 series phone next month.
Lenovo has rolled out a video teaser on Twitter confirming that the company will unveil K8 Plus on September 6. In the trailer, we see the phone featuring the raven-hued body with metal-based chassis. The interesting thing to note is that there a dedicated music-button (play/pause), just below the SIM slot on the left side of the edge, indicating that it will boast good audio output hardware, most probably Dolby Atmos system.

There is no mention of other features in the clip, but we are certain that the upcoming K8 Plus will run pure Android OS, as the company during the K8 Note launch had confirmed that all their future products will have no custom interface or any pre-loaded apps similar to its sister brand Motorola's Moto series.
Lenovo's official partner Flipkart has confirmed that the new K8 Plus will be sold exclusively on its e-commerce site soon after the unveiling on September 6.
"Flipkart has been instrumental in building the Lenovo brand in India – having sold more than 7mn Lenovo branded mobile phones in the last 2.5 years.
