Lenovo is, without a doubt, one of the largest China-based tech companies, but looking at only the company’s smartphone business, they can’t compete with some other heavyweights from China. Lenovo did, however, introduce some interesting smartphones in the last year or so, including the Vibe K4 Note smartphone. This handset was introduced in India back in January this year, and it has been available in the country ever since.
Those of you who are interested in this smartphone, but would love it to be made out of different materials, you’ll be glad to hear that Lenovo just introduced a new Vibe K4 Note variant. The Lenovo Vibe K4 Note Wooden Edition has just been announced by the company in India, and as its name says, this device is made out of wood, partially. As you might have guessed, the back side of this device is made out of wood, while the rest of it offers identical materials as the standard model. The Lenovo K4 Note also comes with identical specs as its predecessor, the smartphone ships with a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top of it. The device is fueled by the MT6753 64-bit octa-core SoC by MediaTek, and a 3,300mAh battery is also included here, and it is not removable. The phone packs in 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The 13-megapixel shooter (f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, ISOCELL sensor) is placed on the back of the phone, and a 5-megapixel camera can be found on the front. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed on the Vibe K4 Note, with the company’s Vibe UI on top of it, though do keep in mind that you can upgrade this phone to Android 6.0 Marshmallow as soon as you fire it up and check for updates. Dolby ATMOS sound is included here, and so is the Wolfson WM8281 audio codec. The Vibe K4 Note measures 153.6 x 76.5 x 9.15mm, while it weighs 158 grams.
The Lenovo Vibe K4 Note Wooden Edition is priced at Rs. 11,499 ($172) in the country, and you can purchase it exclusively through Amazon India. The original model is now more expensive thanks to this launch, and it costs Rs. 10,999 ($165) in India.
