Lenovo K4 Note Wooden Edition: For An Immersive VR Experience

Lenovo India, in the second week of July, unveiled the much awaited Vibe K4 Note Wooden Edition smartphone. The handset is priced at ₹11,499 and is exclusively available on Amazon India. The Chinese mobile phone giant, in a press release, has claimed to have sold more than 7.5 lakh units of the smartphone so far.

It’s interesting to consider the number of units of the Vive 64 Note that Lenovo sold till date. The company, in April, announced that it sold five lakh units of the phone in India since January, which means 2.5 lakh units were sold in less than three months. That should make it one of the fastest moving smartphones in the world!

It may be recalled that the Vibe K4 Note, bundled with the Ant VR headset, was offered at ₹13,299 when the phone was launched in January.

The biggest highlight of the Vibe K4 Note Wooden Edition is its TheaterMax feature. It converts the usual content to an immersive virtual reality magic. Powered by the proprietary Lenovo VR technology, the smartphone offers its users a large screen cinematic experience. Users can also partner the phone with independent VR glasses sold separately in the market.

The Vibe K4 Note is powered by a 6.0 Android Marshmallow operating system, with the lighter version of Lenovo Vibe UI skin on the top. The dual 4G SIM phone has a 5.5 inch full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) IPS display, backed by ISOCELL technology for more clear and crisp images. The pixel density is 401ppi and the fascia is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. An octa-core MediaTek MT6753 SoC processor powers the phone which uses a 3GB DDR3 RAM module to process information. The smartphone has a 13 megapixel back camera, equipped with PDAF autofocus, dual-tone LED flash, and f/2.2 aperture. Phase detection autofocus, touch focus, geo-tagging, panorama, HDR, and face detection, are other major features of the camera. There’s also a 5 megapixel front camera for video calling and clicking wonderful selfies.

On the audio front, the smartphone has the Dolby Atmos sound processing technology that outputs sound to both earphones and speakers. This is the first of its kind smartphone to be equipped with such a technology. The gadget comes with an innovative three-microphone system which works with the Wolfson audio codec. This filters out the ambience noise and enhances sound recording and input. The Vibe K4 Note is equipped with a fingerprint sensor below the camera on the back panel. Gravitation, e-compass, and light and proximity sensors, are the other refinements of the smartphone, retained in the wooden edition.

The K4 Note has 16GB of internal storage capacity, which can be expanded up to 128GB via a micro SD card. The 9.1mm thick phone has a weight of 158 grams and runs on a 2200mAh battery having fast charging capability.

As regards features, there’s almost no difference between the K4 Note and this one, but the wooden edition is what makes it stand out!

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
