Lenovo Vibe K5, Vibe K5 Plus First Look

Lenovo at MWC 2016 trade show launched two new smartphones - the Vibe K5 and the Vibe K5 Plus. We managed to get our hands on the metal-clad Lenovo Vibe K5 and the Vibe K5 Plus at the trade show in Barcelona, and you can check out our First Look video.

The budget smartphones feature similar specifications except the display resolution and the processor they are powered by. The phones are slated to arrive in March at a price of $149 or roughly Rs. 10,200 for the Vibe K5 Plus and $129 or roughly Rs. 8,800 for the Vibe K5.

The handsets focus on offering a better entertainment experience to users as they sport Dolby Atmos speakers for stereo sound. The company is also positioning its new offerings as the successor to the existing A6000 series, which will be discontinued. In addition, all smartphones from the company will either fall under the Vibe or Moto sub-brands. The Vibe K5 and the Vibe K5 Plus will come in three colours - Silver, Grey, and Gold.

The Lenovo Vibe K5 sports a 5-inch LCD HD display (720x1280 pixels). It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 octa-core SoC coupled with Adreno 405, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of inbuilt storage - which can be expanded via microSD card (32GB). Other features of the Lenovo Vibe K5 include a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel sensor on the front.

The Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus, as its name suggests, offers slightly more powerful hardware modules. It has a 5-inch IPS LCD full-HD display (1080x1920 pixels). It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 octa-core SoC with Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB of RAM. It also houses a 13-megapixel rear-camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor.

Both the handsets support dual-SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and Micro-USB 2.0 connectivity options. The Lenovo Vibe K5 and Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus have 2750mAh batteries and run Android 5.1 Lollipop.
