After recently launching the Lenovo K8 Note in India, the company has now taken the wraps off two new smartphones today – the Lenovo K8 Plus and the Lenovo K8. As you could probably tell by the name, the Lenovo K8 is essentially a mellowed version of the K8 Plus. The Lenovo K8 Plus on the other hand, comes with premium features like a dual-camera setup, latest MediaTek chipset, and big battery, among other things. And with its specifications and the price tag, the Lenovo K8 Plus competes with some of the most popular smartphones out there. If we were to compare, we would pitch the Lenovo K8 Plus against the new Xiaomi Mi A1 and Coolpad Cool Play 6. Let s see how it fares against them.

Display and hardware

The Lenovo K8 Plus, Xiaomi Mi A1 and Coolpad Cool 6, all feature a 5.5-inch full HD display. But in terms of hardware, the three have a different story to tell. The Lenovo K8 Plus comes with MediaTek Helio P25 processor, which is accompanied by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. In comparison, while the Xiaomi Mi A1 is powered by Snapdragon 625 octa-core chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage, the Coolpad Cool Play 6 comes with a Snapdragon 653 octa-core chipset, with a whopping 6GB of RAM and 64GB of non-expandable storage.

The Lenovo K8 Plus, Xiaomi Mi A1 and Coolpad Cool Play 6, all run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. Though notably, similar to the Lenovo K8 Note, the company has dropped the Vibe Pure UI with the K8 Plus too to opt for pure stock Android. Xiaomi Mi A1 too walks the path of stock Android by running the device on Google s Android One operating system.

Also, while there is no news on Coolpad Cool Play 6 s OS upgrade, Lenovo s Anuj Sharma and Google s Jon Gold have confirmed that the Lenovo K8 Plus and Xiaomi Mi A1 will soon receive the Android Oreo update. The Mi A1 is promised to receive the upgrade by end of this year. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Mi A1: From dual cameras to Android One OS; here are the top 5 features

The Lenovo K8 Plus comes with a combination of a 13-megapixel and a 5-megapixel depth sensor at the back. ALSO READ: Lenovo K8, K8 Plus with stock Android, 4,000mAh battery launched

In comparison, the Xiaomi Mi A1 s dual-camera assembly includes a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom support. Similar to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, it comes with a portrait mode, which allows users to create DSLR-like bokeh effect. The Coolpad Cool Play 6, on the other hand, offers a pair of 13-megapixel snappers with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and dual-tone LED flash.

All three smartphones feature dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE with VoLTE voice calling feature, Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi 802.11n.
