The Lenovo K320t is priced at CNY 999 and is currently open for reservation via JD.com. The device will go on sale from January 4, 2018, in China. Lenovo K320t comes in Black colour variant only.
Being a standard budget phone, the Lenovo K320t comes with a polycarbonate body and entry-level specifications. Up front, the device sports a 5.7-inch IPS display with HD resolution of 1440 × 720 pixels and has a 2.5D curved glass on top. The device offers 18:9 aspect ratio and 81.4 percent screen to body ratio, which is though relatively lower than most full-screen smartphones.
Under the hood, the Lenovo K320t is powered by a quad-core Spreadtrum processor clocked at 1.3GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM. The device sports 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card slot.
On the rear, is a horizontal dual camera setup along with a fingerprint sensor with a chrome-plated ring. As for the cameras, there are 8MP+2MP fixed focus cameras with f/2.0 aperture and f/2.2 aperture respectively. The smartphone also packs a front-facing 8MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture.
The K320t is fueled by a 3000mAh battery and comes with 5V/2A (10W) fast charging support. As for connectivity options, there is 4G-LTE with VoLTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS/A-GPS, 3.5 mm audio jack and Micro USB support.

The dual-SIM Lenovo K320t runs Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. It will probably launch below Rs 10000 range when it comes to India. As for time frame of the Lenovo K320t launch in the country, nothing remains clear at this point.
