The ASUS ZenFone 2 had its position as the only smartphone packing 4GB of RAM for a little while before Xiaomi announced the Mi Note Pro. Now Lenovo has joined the 4GB party with the launch of the K80, the Chinese company's latest mid-range smartphone.With the huge success of Xiaomi and the continued fortunes of Huawei, Lenovo sort of gets forgotten when discussing Chinese manufacturers, but the company continues to churn out smartphones that are nothing short of solid. The K80 seems to fit nicely into that description with its easy on the eye looks and interesting specs. Those specifications include the aforementioned 4GB of RAM sitting with a 1.8GHz 64-bit Intel Atom processor. The handset comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD scree, LTE connectivity, a generous 64GB of internal storage space, a big 4000 mAh battery, and a 13 megapixel rear camera with OIS. The device will be available in black, silver, and red. Lenovo said the K80 will be available in China from April 30th and will cost the equivalent of $290. It is clear Lenovo is trying to compete with the ZenFone 2 (not to mention Xiaomi) here and the company, like ASUS, has a lower 2GB model that has 32GB of storage and will cost $240. Whether the K80 will arrive in other markets remains to be seen, but we do not expect to see it in the United States of Europe.
