Lenovo K8 Note to Feature Stock Android and not Vibe UI

Lenovo K8 Note to Feature Stock Android and not Vibe UI

There was a certain trend and we have now chose to cut the Vibe Pure UI off from our phones. The Sharma also noted that the switch to stock would allow it to better roll out updates to the company's line of smartphones, including an Android O update sometime after Google releases the final version of the operating system later this year.

According to Sharma, the move to stock was largely motivated by the simple fact that customers were asking for the unaltered version of Android, preferring it to Lenovo's own skinned UI. This was a step in the right direction, but by getting rid of Vibe Pure UI altogether and sticking with Android in its stock form, all future Lenovo smartphones should expect much speedier software updates than what their predecessors have seen. We have been close to the consumers and we saw what they were asking for.

"There's no more Vibe UI going forward and we are moving to complete stock Android for all our future Lenovo phones".

Until now, the Chinese original equipment manufacturer (OEM) has continued to sell its smartphones with its custom Vibe Pure UI overlay, while its Motorola smartphones have consistently avoided any software modifications. This is a huge transition for our business perspective. Along with the stock Android look and feel, future Lenovo phones will also feature added software features similar to whats found on Moto phones in the United States, in addition to support for Dolby Atmos. Apart from these changes, the UI will be clean stock Android. The cultural differences that came in where for example in China Android isn't a very popular choice when you compare it to custom skins. For the Indian market, the preference was with stock Android experience, " Anuj Sharma revealed.

Sharma also pointed out that the move will make updating devices a much smoother process.

The company also confirmed that the all smartphones launched this year under the "K series" branding will receive Android O update. As per the listing on Geekbench, the Lenovo K8 Note has 4GB RAM and MediaTek Helio X20 1.39 GHz deca-core processor.
