Lenovo unveils metal unibody K6, K6 Power and K6 Note smartphones at IFA
Each member of the dual-SIM K6 range gets Qualcomm's 1.4 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 430 SoC, allied to Adreno 505 graphics. There's also a fingerprint sensor located to the rear of each, while Android 6.0 Marshmallow is included across the board.
The standard K6 gets a 5-inch FHD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. It includes 2 gigs of RAM, 16/32 GB expandable storage, and a 3000 mAh battery. 4G-ready and bundled with the usual array of connectivity including Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS, the device gets 8- and 13-megapixel cameras on the front and back respectively.
The K6 Power, meanwhile, gets a welcome battery bump to 4000 mAh. There are actually two separate configurations of the K6 Power; one with 16 GB storage and 2 GB RAM, and another model featuring 3 GB ram and 32 GB storage.
The agreeable metal finish is available in the three color choices of Dark Grey, Gold, and Silver. Since Lenovo's K6 trinity is apparently headed for India, they'll get to do battle with the likes of Xiaomi's Redmi 3S — a similarly-equipped metallic handset introed a couple of weeks back.
It's as yet unknown how much the new devices will cost, though looking at the Redmi 3S's $105 price tag, we'd expect them to be cheap. Set to roll out next month, it's as yet unknown if the K6 series will launch beyond India
As and when the finer details come to light, we'll be sure to pass them on.
