Lenovo K4 Note Philippines Price is Php 10,699 : Comes with Free VR Headset, Lenovo Powerbank, Skullcandy Earphones

Lenovo K4 Note, the follow-up to last year's midrange best-seller Lenovo K3 Note also known as Lenovo A7000 Plus, has just been launched here in the Philippines.

Before I give you the official pricing details of this cool phablet as well as the list of all freebies that come with the package, let's take a look at the design of the device first and study its set of technical specifications.

In terms of aesthetics and build, the K4 Note - for me - represents a clear upgrade from last year's model. Whereas Lenovo A7000 and A7000 Plus both had shells made purely of plastic, the 2016 refresh flaunts a real metal side frame making it look and feel more durable and elegant. The rounded form factor also makes it easier to hold and keep in the pocket.

Apart from its refreshed design and fingerprint scanner at the back that the owner can use to instantly unlock the phone, many things about Lenovo K4 Note - especially when it comes to specs - are just similar to what's on the 2015 phablet.

You get the same 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display, 13 MegaPixel autofocus main camera with Dual Tone LED flash, 5 MegaPixel front cam, Full HD video recorder, Dolby Atmos sound enhancement, 4G LTE mobile connectivity support, and Dual SIM Dual Standby capability. What's cool, however, is that K4 Note has 3,300 mAh battery pack that's bigger - if a bit - than what powers A7000 Plus.

At its heart, Lenovo K4 Note runs its Vibe-UI-skinned Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with a 64-Bit Octa Core 1.3 GHz ARM Cortex A53 and Mali-T720MP3 GPU based MediaTek MT6753 chipset (which is ever slightly less powerful than MT6752 powering A7000 Plus), has 3GB of RAM for smooth multitasking, and has 16GB of expandable storage for photos, videos, and other content.

Simply put, in terms of gaming performance, raw power, and user interface (called 'Vibe UI', which incorporates software innovations like Knock to Light, Wide Touch, and Flip to Sleep), Lenovo K4 Note is largely the similar to the model it superseded.

What's totally cool about this release, though, is that it lets you experience virtual reality via the free VR Headset that's included in the package! Simply run the pre-installed VR games and applications, pop the phablet in, and you're good to go.
