As expected, Lenovo has finally launched the Vibe K5 in India, today. The smartphone will be up for sale in Platinum Silver, Champagne Gold and Graphite Gray color options at Rs. 6,999. The smartphone will be available via flash sale model on Amazon India. The registrations for the sale will begin on Monday from 1PM. The first sale is slated at 2PM on June 22.
To recap, the Vibe K5 was unveiled at the MWC 2016 and since then many fans in India have been waiting for its launch in their homeland. We think that Lenovo has taken a long time to launch the device in India because it will be facing a tough competition from recently launched devices by Xiaomi and LeEco. The Vibe K5 comes with TheaterMax technology, which turns user's existing media and games into an immersive wide screen experience whenever clubbed with the AntVR headset.
Coming on to the specifications, the Lenovo Vibe K5 comes with metal bodies and Dolby Audio certification with a dual-speaker setup. It features a 5-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 processor. The device comes equipped with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Nothing exciting here. On the hardware side, it bears 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. On the connectivity front, it comes with dual-SIM card slots with 4G LTE.
