Chinese smartphone maker, Lenovo has unveiled two new smartphones- Lenovo K5 Pro and Lenovo K5s in China. Both the devices were launched alongside the company’s flagship handset, the Lenovo S5 Pro. The Lenovo K5 Pro sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, which we have seen on Lenovo Z5 smartphone earlier. The Lenovo K5s, on the other hand, has the MediaTek Helio P22 chipset, so it’s an entry-level smartphone. Both the devices sport dual rear cameras and they’ll be limited to the Chinese market for now. Recently, the Motorola-owned company said that it would launch new models going forward in India, but it did not state when it will bring these smartphones to the sub-continent.
