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.

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).
