The all-latest Lenovo K6 Note is the company’s initial K-series smartphone to be accessible exclusively through offline channels, and the firm claims that it will be accessible at $160 retail stores. Lenovo also plans to market the K6 Note heavily for the Tier 2 and Tier 2 markets. The K6 Note provides an all-metal body and some perfect specifications. The firm is also marketing its Theater Max technology for virtual reality.
Lenovo K6 Note features and specifications
The Lenovo K6 Note has the same 430 Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.4GHz as the K6 power. There are 2 variants of this phone, one with 32 GB of storage and 3GB of RAM, and one with 64 GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. The smartphone helps expandable storage through microSD card.
The K6 Note sports a sixteen megapixel rear camera with PDAF and a twin-LED flash. At the front, the K6 Note keeps the same eight megapixel front camera viewed on the K6 Power. Connectivity choices on the Smartphone contain GPS, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 4G with VoLTE. The K6 Note also contains digital compass, proximity sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer.
The Lenovo K6 Note camera does a best job when it appears to relaxed regular shots. The sixteen megapixel touch with PDAF is fast to look focus. The Smart composition instrument tries to help in different conditions, but can be turned off in the camera settings. The application provides modes including quick-motion, HDR, Nightscape, Panoramas, and slow-motion.
The Lenovo K6 Note runs 6.0 Android Marshmallow with Vibe Pure UI Lenovo on top. Other program specs are general across the models as well, including the application lock functionality that permits users to lock any app behind a fingerprint; twin apps mode, which lets users have 2 WhatApp and other social media accounts on the same Smartphone, and Fingerprint Snap, which allows the fingerprint touch act as a substitute shutter key. Overall, Vibe Pure UI is perfect and feels quick with only a little amount of bloatware.
With this Smartphone, Lenovo is once again marketing its ANT VR headset and TheaterMax technology, which was primary released with the Lenovo Vibe K4 note at the starting of 2016. The headset basically permits users to experience media such as games, movies, and other content with a hundred degree field of view which is almost equivalent to cinematic experience. It is anyway value mentioning that users will have to purchase the Ant VR headset individually from Amazon. One can permit VR mode by long-pressing the power key, or form within the settings application.
Considering that the Ant VP headset is fairly affordable and is built well, the K6 Note provides users an option to experience VR without spending a bomb.
Lenovo K6 Note feel and look
At first look, the front of the K6 Note also looks same as to the K6 Power, though the display size is clearly a large differentiator. There is actually a lot of reliability between the siblings in terms of design.
There are capacitive navigation keys just below the screen, and the power and volume keys are on the side. The capacitive keys for navigation do not have backlighting. The hybrid SIM tray, which can fit either 2 SIMs or single SIM or single microSD card, is on the left. The 3.5 mm audio jack is on peak, while there are 2 speakers’ grilles on either side of Micro-USB port on the base.
The front of the Smartphone is dominated by the 5.5 inch screen. The back of the K6 Note is where we view the most differences matched to the smaller K6 power. The round fingerprint scanner is placed right below the rear camera and flash. 2 gold lines frame the bottom and top of the phone, and there is some firm branding towards the bottom as well.
The 5.5 inch complete HD (1080×1920-pixel) IPS screen on the K6 Note is vibrant and generates truly quick colours and text. The brightness is perfect for outdoor use. There is no security for example Corning Gorilla Glass for the screen which seems like a potential weakness considering that rivals do offer this.
Lenovo is one of the many firms that have invested largely in establishing an internet sales presence, and several models in the recent past have been online exclusive. With its latest K6 Note anyway, the firm wants to reach the customers who like buying phones offline. The K6 Note provides a big display and a general VR experience through the cost-friendly Ant VR headset, which is a remarkable spec even if it is not forever practical. We like this phone build standard and screen, but we still would have liked a more solid SoC.
