The Lenovo K4 Note is one of the most popular handsets right now with over 60,000 units of the smartphone selling out in no time yesterday. But at about the same time, LeEco has announced the Le 1s smartphone in the country with availability scheduled for early February.
Hardware wise, the Le 1s is comparable to the Lenovo K4 Note, but the device is slightly cheaper at Rs 10,999. The handset is currently up for pre-registration exclusively via Flipkart with the first flash sale scheduled for Tuesday, the 2nd of February at 12PM.
The Lenovo K4 Note on the other hand is an exclusive via Amazon India with a price tag of Rs 11,999. The company is also selling a VR headset bundle of the K4 Note for Rs 12,499. The K4 Note with the VR bundle will be available on the 26th of January at 2PM while the K4 Note sans the bundle can be bought on 27th of January. Both devices will be available starting 2PM.
So it’s clear that the two handsets are almost on par in terms of pricing. So how do the devices fare in terms of internal hardware? Let’s have a look:
|Device||LeEco Le 1s||Lenovo K4 Note|
|Display||5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display||5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display|
|Weight||169 grams||158 grams|
|Processor||Octa-core Mediatek MTK6795T||Octa-core Mediatek MT6753|
|Camera||13MP rear, 5MP front||13MP rear, 5MP front|
|Storage||32GB (non-expandable)||16GB (expandable via microSD)|
|OS||Android 5.0 Lollipop||Android 5.1 Lollipop|
|Battery||3,000 mAh||3,300 mAh|
|Price||Rs 10,999 (Flipkart exclusive)||Rs 11,999 (Amazon India exclusive)|
|Connectivity||4G LTE with dual SIM||4G LTE with dual SIM|
|Other||USB Type C, fingerprint scanner||Fingerprint scanner|
As you can see, the Le 1s comes with a USB Type C port which is the current standard for connectivity ports. This is something that’s lacking on the Lenovo K4 Note which utilizes a micro USB port. This combined by the pricing of the handset makes the Le 1s a better proposition compared to the K4 Note.

The Le 1s comes with a premium looking Gold color variant, while the K4 Note is available in an unflattering Black model. In any case, you can’t go wrong with either smartphone, so the decision is left entirely up to the customer. It ultimately comes down to personal preference and the pricing, which is an area where the LeEco Le 1s has an upper hand.
