The third largest smartphone maker in the world appears to be in plans to cash in on the fastest growing affordable 4G LTE smartphone segment in India. It has been announced by the firm that it will be launching an aggressively priced 4G LTE smartphone in India soon after showcasing it at the CES 2015 tech show to be held in the next week in Las Vegas.
Furthermore, the firm added that it will be launching a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 based 4G LTE smartphone at the CES 2015 in the next week. It is claimed that the pricing of the smartphone will be revealed at the tech show.
Though Lenovo has not officially revealed any details regarding the upcoming device, it is likely to launch the Lenovo K3 smartphone that went official in China earlier this month. May be, the handset could be showcased with a different moniker at the CES 2015. Notably, the Lenovo K3 is based on Snapdragon 410 and supports 4G LTE connectivity.
As Lenovo has clearly mentioned that the handset will be priced aggressively in India, we believe that this new smartphone will be a tough challenger to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and Micromax Yureka that are priced at Rs 9,999 and Rs 8,999 respectively.
To refresh on the specifications of the Lenovo K3, the smartphone boasts of a 5 inch HD IPS display with 720×1280 pixel resolution and incorporate a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor ticking at 1.2 GHz paired with 1 GB of RAM. The device comes packed with 16 GB of inbuilt storage with micro SD card support for additional storage. Other goodies of the K3 include an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front camera, a 2,300 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.
