It was Asus that released the world’s first 4GB RAM smartphone, and now it’s Lenovo who has done it. Following the footsteps of Asus Zenfone 2 and Xiaomi Mi 4i, which were recently launched on 23rd April, Lenovo has unveiled a power-packed smartphone ‘K80’ with 4GB RAM and humongous  4000 mAh battery.

The price is tagged around $290 (approx INR 17,500/-) which will be first released in China on 30th April. While, there is no confirmation of the release date of Lenovo K80 in India, it should soon make it’s debut here.

Lenovo, the Chinese firm, which has launched A6000 and A7000 with had 1GB and 2GB RAM respectively no long time back, is now aiming even big with this launch. We have seen that over last 12 to 18 months Lenovo has been introducing smartphones that have much cheaper price tag, as compared to what other brands offer at the same price. And that’s the reason why Lenovo smartphones are preferred by most of the Indians, including yours truly. Now let’s dig out the specifications of Lenovo’s latest smartphone.

Lenovo K80 Specifications:

As said earlier, the smartphone comes with a 4GB RAM and 4000 mAh battery; it has a lot more to surprise you. Have a glimpse at the specifications of Lenovo K80:

  • Quad-core 1.8GHz CPU
  • Runs on Android Lollipop (5.0),
  • Internal memory 64 GB internal and expandable by 32GB with microSD card
  • 8.5mm thickness
  • 5.5-inch screen with 1080×1920 pixels resolution
  • 13 MP rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization
  • Video 1080p full HD with 30fps
  • 4G LTE, 3G
  • Comes with accelerometer, proximity and compass sensors

There is no official confirmation about the front facing camera, but according to the resources, it might be decent5MP.

Lenovo K80 Vs Asus Zenfone 2:

When it comes to smartphone lovers, the first thing that strikes their mind is the price. Lenovo K80 price is expected to be somewhere around 18,000/- and Asus Zenfone 2 4GB RAM version, ZE551 ML comes in two variants, 32GB at 19,999/- and 64GB at 22,999. By this, it is quite clear that if you are looking forward to do multitasking on your phone you need a 4GB RAM to do it efficiently and you can’t get a better deal than Lenovo K80.

But when it comes to the processor, Asus Zenfone 2 has 2.3 GHz processor and Lenovo has 1.8 GHz. So this might be an advantage for the Zenfone users, but with 4GB RAM, I don’t think that it will make much of a difference.

Lenovo K80 can give you much longer battery life as it has 4000 mAh battery whereas; Asus Zenfone 2 has 3000 mAh. But the fact that Zenfone’s battery can be charged up to 60% within 40 minutes, it might be preferred by many.

If you go on comparing, there are many things that make both the smartphones special in different categories. But the fact that, every customer has an eye on the price at the ends, Lenovo K80 might win the race.

Cheapest Smartphone with 4GB RAM in India

Pretty soon, Lenovo K80 is expected to release in India at a price of 18,000 (most probably). it will take the crown of becoming the cheapest 4GB RAM phone in India. The biggest industry players such as Samsung and iPhone are sure to face stiff competition with such releases by the Chinese companies, especially in India.

We will update this post as we learn more on this!

  7. Hemant says

    Compared to Asus and Lenovo ..of course both are good but I hope Asus has a better Motherboard Quality ! Where as Lenovo is Average… becoz I have seen some of the Smart phones in Lenovo are restarting …performance has been reduced after some months and Compared too !
    Now in this Segment I hope Lenovo Improved their Quality … and Gifting Indians as Launching such a great Configuration !
    Top class Features that we mostly like to Prefer is
    – below 5 inch’s with 4000 mah battery
    – Dual Sim is must now- a – days ( Active )
    – Camera 20 mp with front 8 mp above with flash
    – Branded Processors Like INTEL or SNAPDRAGON’s within 2.3 GHz to 3.4 GHz above.. ( Don’t Use MediaTeK _ the worst Hopeless processor which gives u Hopeless performance even Octa core or more )
    – 4 GB RAM
    – Screen resolution with 4k above
    – Corning Gorilla Glass 4 or above
    – Branded Front Facing Speakers in Dual Surround System
    – Inbuilt ROM 32/64/128 GB with Expandable up to 128 GB ( Becoz now-a-days Personal usage is more in Mobiles )
    – Sensors …Buttons and Finishing etc !
    – Fast Turbo Charger and Bass Woofered Headset

    So these are the Featured Mobile Phone ..we r expecting to be a greater sales for u and as we too like to prefer too !
