LifeCom, the sole authorised distributor of Lenovo smartphones in Nepal, silently launches Lenovo’s latest flagship smartphone, the K5 Note, for Rs. 27,950. The company has bundled the phone with ANTVR headset for an immersive VR experience.
The Lenovo K5 Note is the successor of the K4 Note which is priced at Rs. 27,500 in Nepal. The K5 note offers substantial improvements over its predecessor in the form of the full metal body and superior hardware specs. It features the same 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display, with 178-degree wide viewing angle, 450 nits brightness , and 1000:1 contrast ratio. It is now powered by a 1.8GHz Octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor which is a big jump in performance compared to 1.3GHz Ocra-core MediaTek MT6753 processor of K4 Note.
In terms of storage, the K5 Note has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage which can be expanded via microSD card upto 128GB. it is running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Vibe UI layered on top. Camera wise, it has a 13MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, Phase Detection Autofocus, and f/2.2 aperture lens. The front houses an 8MP front-facing camera with 77.4-degree wide-angle lens. Like the K4 Note, the K5 Note features a dual front firing Dolby ATMOS speaker and a fingerprint scanner on the back.
The Lenovo K5 Note is fueled by a 3500mAh battery which should provide decent battery life. Connectivity options include Dual SIM with 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. Compared to the Indian pricing of INR. 11,999 (NPR. 19,200), the price of K5 Note in Nepal at Rs. 27,950 doesn’t make any sense just like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro and Huawei GR5.
