Just a few hours back, we reported that Lenovo had a surprise in store for its fans, the new Lenovo Lemon K3 Note. The device, like its name suggests, will be an affordable phablet in the company’s lemon smartphone series. Earlier, we got to see two pictures of the device, and now, there are enough pictures to show off the exact design on this upcoming smartphone.

The back of the Lenovo Lemon K3 Note features a very unique design. The smartphone continues with the trademark bright yellow shade of the Lemon series. The Lenovo branding is prominent at the back, especially since its located inside a circular ring which looks like it protrudes slightly from the overall body.

At the back, on the top left corner, you can see the camera unit along with the dual LED flash while on the right, there’s a microphone. Interestingly, the speakers are not located at the bottom, but on the top right corner. The protruding lenovo branding may help in loudness of the speakers since it will not be muffled when the display is facing upwards.

Coming to the front, there is a 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display with capacitive buttons at the bottom. On top, you have a front camera unit and a receiver mesh. Overall Design wise, the Lenovo K3 Note looks well built.

As for specs, the phone is said to come with the octa-core Mt6752 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. You can expand this further up to 32GB via MicroSD. At the back, there will be a 13MP camera while up front, you’ll get a 5MP sensor. The phone supports dual SIM cards and dual 4G TD-LTE networks. Finally, at the back, the K3 Note will feature a 3000 mAh battery, which is decent enough for a day’s battery life. Also, Lenovo has managed to limit its thickness to just 7.6mm, which is commendable given that the battery is large and can be removed.

While we don’t know the official pricing, it is said that the device will be affordable and will retail between 799 and 999 Yuan. The specs and the pricing puts the Lenovo Lemon K3 Note in direct competition with the Meizu M1 Note. Of course, the design on the M1 Note is much better than this Lenovo device, but still, its good enough to confuse potential smartphone buyers.

Lenovo is expected to announce the device later today. So, we will get more details like official pricing and international availability soon.

So what do think about the phone’s design?
