The Lenovo K5 Note does not come with a substantial overhaul from its predecessor, however, unlike the K4 Note, this one features an all-metal body.

The smartphone also features Dolby Atmos-powered speakers, which were present in the K4 Note too.

The device has 16GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via microSD card.
