After the success of Lenovo K8 Note, the company launched Lenovo K8 Plus in India at an event in New Delhi today. Over the past few days, the company had been teasing the K8 Plus smartphone on its social media platforms revealing its features.
As expected, the handset has joined the list of smartphones with dual rear cameras with its 13-megapixel Purecell sensor and 5-megapixel depth sensor to deliver the ‘Bokeh’ effect.

Exclusively available on Flipkart from 12 pm, September 7 onwards, the Lenovo K8 Plus has been launched at Rs 10,999 for the 3GB RAM+ 32 GB variant. The 4GB RAM+32 inbuilt storage variant will come in the Diwali season. The smartphone is available on Flipkart with BuyBack guarantee for six months.

On the front, there is an 8MP sensor with a 'Party Flash' that will help make the smartphone an attractive option for selfie aficionados.
