Lenovo has announced two new mid-range Android smartphones – Lenovo Vibe K5 and Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus – during MWC 2016. Both these smartphones come with metal bodies and Dolby Audio certification with dual-speaker setup. These devices can be seen as cut-down versions of the Lenovo K5 Note, which was launched last month.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus Specifications

  • Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system
  • 5.0-inch IPS LCD display, 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, 441 ppi
  • 13-megapixel primary camera, autofocus, single LED flash, HDR, Panorama, and Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) video recording.
  • 5-megapixel secondary camera
  • Dolby ATMOS Audio and two-speaker setup
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor with 1.5GHz 64-bit quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU and Adreno 405 GPU
  • 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
  • Dual-SIM, 4G LTE Cat. 4/3G HSPA+, and FM Radio
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth v4.1, microUSB v2.0 port, and 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 2,750 mAh removable battery; 142 x 71 x 8 mm; 142 g

Both these devices run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, which is a shame at the point of time. The company did say during its media briefing that these devices will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update after a few months because they are still trying to integrate some good features from Motorola’s software.

Both these smartphones come equipped with 13-megapixel rear-facing cameras and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. Nothing exciting here. On the hardware side, they come with 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. On the connectivity front, they come with dual-SIM card slots with 4G LTE.

Interestingly, both devices are supplied with 2,750 mAh removable batteries, and they weigh the same inspite of differences between them in terms of chipset and screen. There’s no fingerprint sensor on these devices unlike the company’s Lenovo K5 Note.

The Lenovo Vibe K5 and the Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus will be offered in three colours – Champagne Gold, Graphite Gray, and Platinum Silver – and are priced at $129 (Rs. 8,765) and $149 (Rs. 10,124), respectively. Lenovo said that these devices will be available starting next month (March, 2016).
