Lenovo K8 Note to Feature Stock Android and not Vibe UI

Share

The Lenovo K8 Note will be the first phone to usher in the demise of Vibe UI - it will ship with stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

Lenovo will continue to release devices with some custom software enhancements - including Dolby Atmos and TheaterMax - but the company has no interest in stuffing its products with bloatware.

Lenovo is gearing up for the launch of the K8 Note on August 9. "There's no more Vibe UI going forward and we are moving to complete stock Android for all our future Lenovo phones". The news got broked by Anuj Sharma, Lenovo India's head of marketing.

It'll be interesting to see the bearing of stock Android OS on the K8 Note, which Lenovo claims will kill the 'ordinary speed'.

The company took this step on consumer demand for a cleaner, smoother Android experience with no bloatware.

Using stock Android going forward also brings Lenovo's phone software more in line with Motorola's devices (which Lenovo bought back in 2014), given that Motorola has always been a proponent of using a mostly stock version of Android on its phones since the original Moto X.

According to Sharma, the reason why Lenovo has made the decision to switch to stock Android is due in part because its customers have been requesting the switch for quite some time. As Lenovo had to align all markets where it sold Android devices. "The stock Android will also mean that it will be more efficiently updated to [the] next Android OS", he said. "But this was something for which Lenovo pushed really hard". He also talked about how custom overlays over android tend to use more resources than stock android.

The company also confirmed that the all smartphones launched this year under the "K series" branding will receive Android O update.
