Chinese smartphone manufacturer Lenovo has scheduled a phone launch event in India on 16th October where the company is expected to launch the Lenovo K8 and K8 Plus. Both the smartphones were launched in September last year.

Lenovo’s press invite shows a smartphone with a metal frame and rounded corners but there’s no information about the phone’s features and specifications.

The company is calling its K-series Note smartphones as “Killer Note”. The upcoming phone could be the successor of the Lenovo K8 Note launched in India in August last year. There’s also a possibility that the phone could be the rebranded version of Lenovo Z5 or a completely new phone.
