The report, however, didn’t state the specific number of units that was depleted in two minutes, but we know flash sales are usually very limited quantities with a huge number of buyers waiting to hit the buy buttons.

There is also the 4GB RAM variant coupled with  64GB or 128GB of storage.

The Lenovo S5 is available on Lenovo official site in Red and Black color options  999 Yuan (~$157) for the base variant with 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, CNY 1,199 for the 64GB storage variant and CNY 1,499 for the 128GB storage variant. More units should be available for sale in no distant time.
