Design

When it comes to design, there not much innovative changes or drastically different to uplift the look but there are few minor refinements. If you put the K8 Note, last year’s K6 Note and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 next to each other, you won’t be able to tell the difference easily at first glance. Even the back of all the devices look similar – except the company branding and the capsule shaped dual-camera module.

Display

The 5.5-inch full-HD display dominates the front, with the earpiece, front-camera, LED flash and sensors placed above it. The capacitive Android navigation keys for home, back and task switcher are placed below the display. Sadly, they aren’t back-lit, and you are likely to struggle with those keys in the dark.
The back has a metal plate – with the top and bottom half made from plastic. The edges are slightly curved to ensure the smartphone properly fits in your palms. You have the dual-camera setup with dual-LED flash and a fingerprint sensor on the top half, with the Lenovo branding on the bottom half. The micro-USB port for charging and data transfers sits in the bottom, while the 3.5mm audio jack sits on the top.There are two separate trays for SIMs/microSD cards so you can use two SIM cards as well as a microSD card for expandable storage without having to choose between either.

Configuration

The smartphone is offered in two variants – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, along with a microSD card slot for further expansion.

Camera

For photography, it has dual-camera setup at the back with a 13-megapixel main sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. One camera captures photos, whereas the other captures depth information. in Front, you have a 13-megapixel camera with LED flash..
StorageThe device comes with 32GB or 64 GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded upto 128GB via a microSD card. The smartphone is embedded with a fingerprint sensor in the back and a home button which helps you unlock your device within 0.3 secs.
