Coming after the much appreciated K4 Note, the new smartphone makes the transition to a more stylish metal casing and completes the list of facilities with VoLTE connections support or biometric authentication sensor.
Lenovo K5 Note is a Full HD smartphone with a 5.5˝ screen, powered by the Helio P10 Mediatek chipset composed out of an octa-core 64 bit CPU and Mali-T860 series GPU. The configuration is completed with 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and micro SD slot for expansion. The main camera offers a13 MP sensor and the front 8MP camera is promising amazing photos for those who like taking selfies.
The visual experience offered by the LTPS screen technology is filled with a processed sound using Dolby Atmos to obtain a surround effect, while the 1.5W speaker allows for clear sound playback.
Even if it is a Dual-SIM, K5Note supports accessing mobile internet networks at 4G LTE speeds and VoLTE connections.
The housing dimensions are 152×75.7×8.49 mm; the phone has a 3500 mAh battery, promising at least a day of mobility under average usage circumstances. However, if the daily activities are depleting too quickly the remaining battery capacity, the rapid charging function will considerably shorten the time spent connected to the AC adapter.
Lenovo delivers the new K5 Note with Android 5.1 Lollipop and personalized Vibe UI interface. Perhaps, Lenovo will deliver and update for Android 6.0 at a later date.
As for the asking price, Lenovo launched K5 Notes with an initial price of $ 167, valid for Asian markets. The amount requested will certainly decrease from the numerous promotions and flash-sale campaigns regularly taking placed in online stores. Unfortunately for orders outside of the Asian continent, you will have to take into account the price of transportation, customs taxes for this kind of items, significantly increasing consumer prices.
