We have seen many companies shifting their display aspect resolution to 18:9. The near bezel-less nature coupled with the new ratio gave a refreshing look at the display. Almost all the flagships that came out recently have the new aspect ratio.
However, Lenovo is late to the party. We know they don’t actually bring any flagship devices to the table. Maybe, that’s what made them delay their first 18:9 smartphone.
K320t is Lenovo’s First 18:9 Smartphone
You know it is possible for us to buy 18:9 device under 10000 INR. Huawei has launched Honor 7X (costs about 15K, though) with a stunning display profile last month. Lenovo also wants to join the bandwagon of budget 18:9 phones.
When you look at the list of major smartphone manufacturers, Sony stands out with no devices sporting the new-found display resolution. We hope we will see Sony adopting it pretty soon.
As for the specs, Lenovo K320t sports a 5.7-inch display with HD+ resolution (1440x 720). The near bezel-less nature provides the users with a widescreen real estate. You get 81.4% screen to body ratio, which, of course, is lower than other devices of the same display design.
Unfortunately, under-the-hood features haven’t become public yet. All we know about the chipset is it’s a Spreadtrum quad-core CPU. We expect it to be Spreadtrum SC9850 made out of 28 nm manufacturing process. You will see Mali 820 MP1 GPU accompanying the chipset along with 2 GB RAM. The 16 GB internal memory is available for expansion up to 128 GB, using an external SD card.
When it comes to the camera, K320t features a dual rear camera setup with 8 MP primary sensor, f/2.0 aperture, and 2 MP secondary sensor f/2.2 aperture. The secondary 2 MP sensor captures the depth details and provides the users with bokeh effect.
The dual SIM device packs in a 3000 mAh battery with fast charging support. The fingerprint scanner has found its position below the camera, with a chrome-plated ring. The phone comes with almost all the connectivity options including WiFi, Bluetooth. 4G VoLTE, GPS, and 3.5 mm headphone jack. The micro USB 2.0 port might disappoint some of you (as it’s not USB Type-C).
The device carries a price tag of 999 Yuan, which is around $150 or Rs. 9800. It is available for registrations on JD.com. Lenovo will begin the sales on January 4th.
So, what do you think? Is K320t worth the money? Will you choose any other phone instead for the same price?
