As the weekend is now nearing an end and with CES (Consumer Electronics Show) sadly now passed, we have most definitely seen our share of amazing and new technologies that is to come this year. With the many new gadgets introduced among these was the newly announced Lenovo K4 Note smartphone. Lenovo, which is a China based company, is well-known throughout most of India with several released smartphones. All reports indicated that this device was only to be sold and marketed in India, however, we are now getting reports that the newly released smartphone is now being sold online at Jarir Bookstore in Saudi Arabia with information on where to pick up the device at its retail locations online. The smartphone on the website has a price listed selling for SAR 899 which is around $240 USD and is also a markup of about 33 percent more than what the exclusive retailer, Amazon India, was marketing the device for.
The Lenovo device in India sells at a price of Rs. 11,999, which is about $180 in U.S currency and features a dual-sim card port as well as a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protecting it. The Android-based phone packs a MediaTek MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor regulating at a speed of 1.3Ghz. Coming with a 3,400 mAh battery and sporting 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB, this phone can sure hold its own against other high-end devices. The device ships with 5.1 Android Lollipop and also features a quite nice metallic frame.
It is worth mentioning that the Saudi Arabia Lenovo K4 Note version of the device with model number A7010, comes with some notable differences. Instead of featuring 3GB of RAM with 16GB of internal storage, the Saudi Arabia version now lists their K4 Note as featuring 2GB of RAM coming with 32GB of internal storage. It’s also worth mentioning that the K4 Note has since only been shown featuring a black body but now is showing the phone in white on Saudi Arabia’s retailer website. Of course with Lenovo suddenly branching out to other countries it makes it very hard to tell if this phone will hit other markets or not. Until then, fans of Lenovo’s devices will just have to wait patiently for the new smartphone.
