Lenovo, within few weeks of unveiling the Vibe K4 Note, has now launched the K5 Note smartphone in China. Priced at CNY 1,099 (approximately Rs. 11,350), the Lenovo K5 Note will be going up for sale in the company’s homeland. Similar to the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note, the K5 Note will be also sold via a flash sale model but will be available only in China.
Unfortunately, the company has so far not revealed any details about the launch of the Lenovo K5 Note outside China.
The new Lenovo K5 Note packs a lot of improvement over the K4 Note such as an all-metal body. Another highlight feature of the handset is its fingerprint scanner, placed below the camera module on the rear panel, though a similar sensor is on board the Vibe K4 Note as well. The handset also packs Dolby Atmos powered speakers which was a highlight on the K4 Note as well.
Much like the K4 Note, the K5 Note is also powered by a MediaTek processor. The K5 Note packs a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor clocked at 1.8GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM and Mali-T860 GPU. It packs 16GB of built-in storage and supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB).
The dual-SIM dual-4G Lenovo K5 Note features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) IPS display, same as the K4 Note. The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF autofocus, an f/2.2 aperture and dual-tone LED flash apart from an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
Lenovo China’s listing of the K5 Note confirms that the handset supports 4G LTE and is compatible with India’s LTE bands as well. Other connectivity options include GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB, and FM radio.
The Android 5.1 Lollipop-based handset runs the company’s proprietary Vibe UI on top. It supports dual Nano-SIM. The K5 Note smartphone packs digital compass, accelerometer, proximity, and ambient light sensors.
