Lenovo has launched the K8 handset in China for RMB 1799 (approx Rs. 18,500). This handset comes loaded with near about the same specifications as seen on the Zenfone 2. Lenovo K80 houses the 64 Bit Intel Atom processor and packed with 4GB RAM.

Just like the Asus Zenfone 2, the Lenovo K80 is also an Intel powered device with ‘Intel Inside’ logo on the back. It houses the Intel Atom processor (64 bit) processor – chipset unknown, it could most likely be the same chipset as seen on the Asus Zenfone 2.

K80 sports a 5.5 inch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. It is running Android Lollipop with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. A 13MP AF camera with OIS is placed on the rear and a front camera (MP unknown). This handset supports 4G LTE and is just about 8.5mm thick. Key features are 4G, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.
