Lenovo launches K5 Note smartphone
Just weeks ago, Lenovo had launched its Vibe K4 Note smartphone in India. Today, the company surprised everyone by launching its successor, the Lenovo K5 Note, in China.
The 5.5-inch smartphone comes with an all-metal body, as well as a 1920 x 1080 (FullHD) resolution display. The handset is powered by MediaTek’s octa-core Helio P10 processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with integrated Mali-T860 graphics, coupled with 2 GB of RAM. The 16 GB of internal storage space (partly taken by the Android 5.1 with Lenovo’s own Vibe UI) can be expanded up to 128 GB via the built-in micro-SD card reader.
The K5 Note sports a 13 MP main camera with Phase Detection Autofocus and dual-tone LED flash, as well as an 8 MP front-facing unit for selfies and video calls. According to the manufacturer, the 3,500 mAh battery should provide enough power for up to 34 hours of talk time or up to 543 hours of stand-by time.
Lenovo’s new handset supports 4G LTE and offers dual-SIM capability. Other interesting features include a fingerprint scanner and Dolby Atmos sound enhancing technology.
Lenovo K5 Note will be available in gold and silver color options at 1,099 CNY (approx. $167). It can be already preordered and the shipments are scheduled to start in China this week.
