Lenovo Vibe K5 Note launched in India, starts 11,999 INR ($171)

As expected, Lenovo announced yet another Redmi Note 3 competitor in the closely contested Indian smartphone market in the all new Vibe K5 Note.

The company announced two versions of the phone, differing in RAM amount (3GB vs 4GB). Let’s take a look at the spec sheet real quick.


Lenovo Vibe K5 Note Specifications 

  • 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display
  • MediaTek Helio P10 MT6755 processor
  • 3GB / 4GB RAM
  • 32GB ROM
  • 3500mAh battery
  • 13 mega-pixel rear camera with PDAF
  • 8 mega-pixel front facing camera
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Dolby Atmos audio

The Vibe K5 Note will sell for 11,999 INR ($179) for the 3GB RAM variant, and 13,499 ($202) INR for the 4GB RAM version. Pricing seems well thought out, but what I don’t understand is the usage of Helio P10 processors, when Helio X10 (or preferable, Snapdragon 650/652) can be used.

Indian readers, what’s the phone that you’d go for given a 15,000 INR budget? Let us know below.
