Lenovo has been on and off India’s smartphone scene for a long time now, but all that’s likely to change come September 5. The company is now sending out invites to the media for a big India comeback keynote event scheduled for September 5, where it is likely to launch three new phones in one go. Three new phones across different price points. The phones in question are the flagship Z6 Pro, the mid-tier K10 Note and the budget A6 Note.
“Big changes take time, but the wait is over,” Lenovo notes in the invite, clearly hinting that it would all be well worth the wait.
Of the three phones, the Z6 Pro is already a go in China which means we already know everything about it. The Z6 Pro is a true-blue flagship phone with a 6.39-inch 1080p+ AMOLED display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor paired with up to 12GB RAM and up to 512GB storage. A 4,000mAh battery drives the whole thing and there’s USB Type-C for charging and data syncing with 27W fast charging support.
On to the cameras, the Z6 Pro has four cameras on the rear – a 48MP main sensor with an f/1.8 lens, a 16MP sensor with a wide-angle-lens, an 8MP sensor with a telephoto lens, and a 2MP camera. There’s also a dedicated Time of Flight sensor on-board the Z6 Pro. On the front, the Z6 Pro has a 32MP camera.
For some perspective, the Z6 Pro starts at CNY 2,899 (roughly Rs 30,000) in China - this is for the variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
As for the K10 Note and A6 Note, both are new phones and it would be interesting to see if Lenovo is looking to announce them in India first. An image shared in the invite gives us a brief look at both the phones. While the K10 Note, which will likely be successor to the K9 Note launched in India in May this year, will come with three rear cameras, the A6 Note will have a dual rear camera setup. It’s a little surprising though because Lenovo is using the tagline “capture stunning photos” with the A6 Note, while the K10 Note will be marketed as “born to play.”
Whatever be the case, you can say that Lenovo is looking to make inroads into India’s burgeoning smartphone market – one more time. It would be interesting to see how things pan out for Lenovo in the days to come.
