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:

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.

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.
