Lenovo K8 Note to Run Stock UI Instead of Vibe Pure UI

Lenovo K8 Note to Run Stock UI Instead of Vibe Pure UI
One of the enormous strengths of Motorola devices is the fact that they offer near stock Android. With an increase in the popularity of Stock Android skin, Lenovo is apparently looking to replace the Vibe Pure Skin with Stock Android UI.

According to the latest reports, the Lenovo K8 Note will be fueled with Clean Stock Android UI, similar to that found in Motorola Smartphones.

"What we have done in last 11 months is we looked at what we had in terms of software perspective. We have been close to the consumers and we saw what they were asking for. There was a certain trend and we have now decided to cut the Vibe Pure UI off from our phones. So you will now get the stock Android which consumers have been asking for," Anuj Sharma, Head of Product Marketing, Smartphones, Lenovo MBG India told Gadgets 360.

"The stock Android will also mean that it will be more efficiently updated to next Android OS. It also makes it easier to support for extended period of time," 
Anuj Sharma added.

Lenovo also confirmed that the all smartphones launched in 2017 under the 'K series' branding will receive Android O update. That said, Lenovo is all set to announce the K8 Note on August 9 in India.
