And later, confirmed that it will launch its Lenovo K8 Note smartphone on August 9 in India.
Recently, the device was also spotted on Geekbench. Since then, there have been revelations of few of its Specifications and features.

The other details of the smartphone are yet not known. The reason behind going with ‘8’ is also not known but it is suspected that it has to do something with the dual rear camera setup. If one recalls, Lenovo K6 Note sports only a single rear camera and hence its successor is expected to get a dual rear camera module
Reportedly, Lenovo K8 Note seems to be the successor of K6 Note. It is surprising as the company has skipped K7 Note. A similar thing was observed with OnePlus in the past. They had launched OnePlus 5 after OnePlus 3T skipping the number 4. To boost up the Galaxy Note brand, Samsung added Galaxy Note 7 skipping Galaxy Note 6.
