Lenovo has made a very important decision that will change the face of smartphone manufacturers. The Chinese have decided to abandon the Vibe UI system overlay for pure Android. The first model of the new design will be the Lenovo K8 Note. By the way, we learned which smartphones Lenovo will get Android O.
Lenovo took over Motorola in 2014. Since then, the Chinese authorities have changed the strategy of both brands and their relationship several times. Initially, Lenovo's mobile division was about to hit Motorola, but that did not happen and Motorola disappeared from the market. Less than 1.5 years was enough for Lenovo to realize that this was a mistake, so the legendary brand returned to the smartphone market. In the meantime, the manufacturer also changed his mind about the software. Initially it was said that the Vibe UI overlay is going to supplant pure Android from Moto smartphones, beginning in China, and eventually around the world. Ultimately, however, will be the other way round. Anuj Sharma of the Indian branch of Lenovo has announced that his company is about to abandon the Vibe UI system overlay, which will be replaced by pure Android . It's about the vast majority of markets outside of China. The first Lenovo K8 Note smartphone without Vibe UI on board will be available next week. Mr. Sharma emphasized the greatest advantage he could find in pure Android – an easier process of updating smartphones to the new version of the green robot.

These are Lenovo K6, Lenovo K6, Lenovo K6 Note and Lenovo K8 Note. I would not be surprised if the update also got Lenovo P2, but I do not have confirmation. Finally, I will add that, according to the information provided to us, the Lenovo K6 Note from the Polish distribution is supposed to get Android Nougat , contrary to the information on the Lenovo support page. Unfortunately, I also have a bad message – for a new version of the system for this model will have to wait until mid-September. Hopefully, nothing will change in the meantime, obviously to the detriment of the owners of this smartphone. Source: Gadgets 360 , own
