What are my thoughts after the launch event? Is this Killer Enough for the competition? should you consider this as your next Smartphone? Here is the First Impressions For you Guys!

Starting with the design of the device looks very good with metallic back (Made of 6000 Series Grade Aluminium) design, and the build quality seems to be very good as well adding to the very good overall quality. The device sports a 5 inch Full HD IPS Display and the clarity seems very good. Also Display is covered in 2.5D Curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Oleophobic Coating which is good step up from previous K6 note. 

Powering the device is the Mediatek (MT6797D) X23 chip (First in this category) running Deca-Core processor paired with MaliT880 GPU, completing the package with 3/4GB RAM and built-in 32/64GB storage with support for MicroSD card. The Performance with this configuration is Mid-Range and as expected the overall performance too seems to be quite very good from the device. And the Dual ARM Cortex-A72 Cores prove that they are capable of handling high end tasks well enough with better efficiency thanks to SOC(System On Chip) built on 20NM Fabrication which seams good enough for price   

Speaking about the camera device packs in a dual 13MP(PureCel Plus Sensor) & 5MP (Samsung BSI Sensor) rear camera with Dual LED (Dual Tone) Flash with includes PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus), When it comes to video recording devices has support for 1080p Full HD recording. Up front there is a 13MP with LED flash camera capable of recording full HD videos. The camera has pretty good considering the category and clarity seems to be pretty good overall.

On the software front the device runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Stock Android UI which runs the device very smooth enough & should provide very good experience on day to day's normal usage. Also Provided is the Fingerprint Scanner & Gyroscope Sensor Built-in. It aslo comes with features such as Dolby Atmos Enhancement, TheaterMAX support & Splash Resistant coating which are very good. Another great feature and which was also requested was elimination of Hybrid sim slot, YES finally device comes with dedicated microSD & dual sim Slot which is great!

When it comes to battery the device is powered by 4000 mah Sealed capacity also comes bundled with 15W Fast charger. The SOC(System On Chip) built on 20NM Fabrication despite being Mediatek Chip battery life of the device seams to be overall very good & should last full day on medium usage more on that on Full Review.
