Obsolete in just a month?
Lenovo just recently launched their K4 Note in India earlier this month. So imagine our surprise when we learned that the firm launched a successor device in their home country during the same month with better specs and a better designed body. Buyer’s remorse anyone?
Lenovo K5 Note
- 1.8GHz MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 octa-core processor
- Mali-T860MP2 GPU
- 2GB of RAM
- 5.5-inch full HD LTPS IPS display, 1920 x 1080 resolution
- 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD up to 128GB
- 13-megapixel rear camera with phase detection AF, dual tone flash
- 8-megapixel front camera
- Dual SIM
- 3G, LTE
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, Fingerprint scanner
- 3,500mAh battery
- Android 5.1 Lollipop
When we say better specs, we mean it – the K4 Note is superior to the previously launched K4 Note, sporting a full metal body over the metal and plastic build of the previous model. While the K5 Note doesn’t have front-facing speakers like its older sibling, the device has a MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz, paired with a Mali-T860 GPU and 2GB of RAM. 16GB of expandable storage. 5.5-inch full HD LTPS display, 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF, fingerprint scanner and a 3500mAh battery round out the specs of the new device.
The K5 Note is projected to sell at RMB 1,099 or around 8K pesos in China.
