The Lenovo K3 Note generated quite some buzz a few months back when it was first announced because of its great mix of capable specs at an affordable price point. Although it has made its way here in the form of the A7000 Plus which practically has the same specs, if it’s the original K3 Note T50 variant you’re pining for, you can get it internationally through online stores like Gearbest. Lazada already sells the local version, the A7000 Plus at an attractive price, but Gearbest is currently holding a pre-sale on the black variant of the Lenovo K3 Note T50 for just $154.99 through this coupon code: K3NOTEBLACK.
The Lenovo K3 Note T50 features a large 5.5 inch Full HD screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. At that size and resolution, watching videos on the go may quickly become one of your favorite things to do on this phone. Of course, such a large screen is also conducive for browsing the web, browsing through your image gallery, or just reading eBooks. The IPS display also lends itself well to the phone’s viewing angles and color reproduction.
Under the hood is a 64-bit 1.7GHz MT6752 octa-core processor by MediaTek, one of the most powerful cost-effective SoCs that has made its way to a lot of today’s popular budget devices. Thanks to the SoC, the Lenovo K3 Note T50 comes with built-in 4G/LTE. RAM is adequate at 2GB RAM, although 3GB would certainly have been more appreciated. Still, you get 16GB of internal storage as well.
One thing music listeners will appreciate is the K3 Note T50’s performance as a personal audio player. It comes with MaxxAudio by Waves, which essentially functions like Beats Audio on phones. Although it’s easy to brush off as just another equalizer app, this suite of audio enhancements help get bigger sound from your handheld device and allow you to tailor the audio output according to the source, as well as to the output (e.g. headphones, bluetooth speakers, loudspeakers, etc.).
As far as imaging goes, the Lenovo K3 Note T50 is one of the best camera phones in its price point. It features a 13mp autofocus camera on the back with its own dual LED flash, as well as a 5mp camera in front with f/2.0 aperture for great low-light performance when taking selfies.
And as capable as the phone is, it’s not likely to run out of power that quickly thanks to its 3,000mAh battery. Gone are the days when the battery would run dry before you even got back from school or work.
The Lenovo K3 Note T50 isn’t on sale internationally yet, although it’s expected to sell for roughly $160+ once it does become available. However, Gearbest is currently holding a pre-sale promotion where you can get the black variant for just $154.99 if you use the following coupon code: K3NOTEBLACK. Again, please keep in mind that this code only works for the black version of the Lenovo K3 Note T50 on Gearbest’s site.
