The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P25 octa core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz, coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. However, the storage is expandable to 128GB using a microSD card via a dedicated slot.

These are the raw specs, but the highlight of the phone is the dual camera set-up which includes a 13.0-megapixel and a 5.0-megapixel sensor, that allow users to take great pictures by adjusting focus, adding bokeh, adjusting aperture from f/0.8 to f/5.6 and much more.

There is a fingerprint scanner on the back which ensures privacy and security. The Lenovo K8 Plus comes with Dolby Atmos. There is even a customisable music key for music lovers so that they can access music at the push of a button. The phone also supports VR and users can enjoy an even bigger screen experience by adding VR glasses and switching to TheaterMax Mode on the phone.

The K8 Plus packs a huge 4000 mAh battery which rated for up to 2 days of use (up to 26 hours of 4G talk time or approximately 20 hours of videos or 100 hours of music, and a massive 400 hours of standby time) and Lenovo will also supply a Rapid Charger that gives you hours of power in minutes.
