Lenovo Announces the All-metal K5 Note

Remember the metallic K4 Note that Lenovo announced just a few weeks back at the CES? Well, there you have it, a successor already though we are quite sure both phones will be offered side-by-side in some markets.

As expected, the phone only brings incremental improvements, and frankly, no one expected Lenovo to shatter ground with this announcement. You get the same 5.5″ LTPS display with 1080p resolution. It is slightly slimmer at 8.49mm but still features dual-SIM, VoLTE and expandable storage.

Underneath, you get a 1.8 Ghz octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor, with 2 GB RAM (versus 3 GB on K4 Note) and 16 GB storage. The back-camera is the same at 13-megapixel with a fingerprint scanner underneath, though the front module has been boosted to an 8-megapixel sensor.

The OS running is Android 5.1 Lollipop with Vibe UI. You do get a slightly larger battery with fast-charging supported, which is a plus. The all-metal body will come in two colours: Silver and Gold.

Prices are set at around $170 around China, which is slightly lesser than the K4 Note. They don’t remain quite the same out of China, though, but let’s hope something radical doesn’t happen there.

    Useless in Pakistan it will be sold at double price.Lenovo should rethink their pricing in Pakistan otherwise they have no future in Pakistan.

    I really dont know y LG,Lenovo n other top chinese brands r doing, u have a big iphone market in pakistan(i dont like it tough) imagine how much they can profit in pakistan, n still they r dead sleep :/

    • Fahad J

      LG is not chinese bro, its Korean like Samsung.

  • Usman

    Lenovo Pakistan are idiots! That’s what I can say. They have potential to compete with huawei and qmobile. But they are wasting time with expensive models instead of models like k4,k5 etc

    • Fahad J

      Bro its the conversion rate, then taxes and then retailer commissions and Dar Zakat Fund all put together increases the rates, its not Lenovos fault.

      • Usman

        I agree on conversion rates etc. But you didn’t get my point. My point was that they should introduce models like k4 Note etc to compete in market.

      Use the one you already have. Why waste so much money on these non-profitable products.

  • Muhammad

    So many companies and Models of cell phones. I wonder who needs that much variety. Buy one that full fill your needs. Use until broken, :P
