The Vibe K5, one of Lenovo’s attempts to eat into the Xiaomi Redmi market, is now on pre-sale in Europe.
In Greece, the K5 can be pre-ordered for (what I think is a rather hefty) €199.
The Vibe K5 was initially shown to the world by Lenovo at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The phone features a 5-inch 1280 x 720p HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front facing camera and a 2750mAh battery.
Considering that the Vibe K5 was announced for $129, the €199 price tag sounds quite steep. Potential buyers (according to Lenovo) might be better off importing a Xiaomi from China at that price, one would assume.
Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that the K5 Plus was launched in India a few weeks back for 8,499 INR ($126).
