Basing solely on the specs sheet, the display size and resolution didn’t change for both devices. The screens are fitted with a Full HD panel, although the K4 has better protection with its Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3.
Internally, both run on a 64-bit octa-core processor. The difference now is that while the older variant has an MT6752 processor, the K4 Note performs on a slightly updated MT6753 CPU. RAM is bigger with the new phablet at 3GB while storage expansion now stretches to 128GB.
On the imaging department, the 13MP rear camera was retained but now has Phase Detection Auto Focus for sharper photos. Additionally, NFC and a fingerprint sensor made their appearance on the K4 Note.
Lenovo also made the new device more for multimedia use as it has dual stereo speakers facing the user. Together with its Dolby Atmos virtual surround sound, the K4 Note can provide better listening experience.
Finally, the recently-announced gadget has a bigger battery capacity compared to its predecessor and now has an updated OS.
Lenovo’s K4 Note has been introduced in India for Rs. 11,999 or approximately Php8,500 when directly converted. On the other hand, the K3 Note is available at Widget City for Php7,990 while the A7000 Plus is officially offered in the country as well for the same price.
