November 22, 2016 - Written By Shaun Lee

Lenovo has been in the smartphone industry for quite some time now, and the company is known for producing decent phones with low price tags. In India, the Chinese company is widely known for its “K series” of smartphones which includes the Lenovo K3 Note, the Lenovo K4 Note and the most recent one, the Lenovo K6 Note. While Lenovo have been able to sell quite a decent number of smartphones especially from the “K series”, there has been growing competition from its Chinese counterparts, including OPPO, Vivo and Xiaomi. Lenovo has also been facing stiff competition from Samsung, which currently holds a large share in the Indian smartphone market.

However, Lenovo has not given up on the smartphone market in India and it is planning to release a new budget smartphone in the country soon. The new smartphone happens to be the Lenovo K6 Power, which was first revealed to the public during IFA 2016. The Lenovo K6 Power was unveiled alongside two other smartphones from the “K series”, which was the Lenovo K6 and Lenovo K6 Note. There has been no official confirmation regarding the upcoming launch of the Lenovo K6 Power, but Lenovo India did post a teaser image on its official twitter account, with the caption, “we know, you can’t get enough of the K series. Can you guess the name of the upcoming K?” On top of that, the hashtag ‘KickassPower’ included in the caption hints that the upcoming smartphone from the company will be the Lenovo K6 Power.

When it comes to the specs of the Lenovo K6 Power, the device sports similar specifications to the Lenovo K6, except for a bigger 4,000 mAh battery. The device comes with a 5-inch Full HD IPS display, and under the hood it packs a Snapdragon 430 octa-core SoC clocked at 1.4GHz coupled with an Adreno 430 GPU to handle graphics. Memory wise, it comes with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM and with 16GB and 32GB of internal storage respectively. Both storage flavors allow for storage expansion of up to 128GB via the microSD card slot located on the device. For optics, a 13-megapixel camera coupled with an LED flash can be found on the rear of the device, while an 8-megapixel sensor is present on the front. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Vibe UI laid on top is featured on the device and it also comes with a fingerprint scanner on the rear.
