This phone was launched along with the Lenovo K5 Note in MWC last month with screen size and processor being the only differentiator. Lenovo K5 Plus sports a metal unibody design and has a 5.5 inches Full-HD display. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 octa-core processor long with Adreno 405 graphics processor and 2GB RAM. The device has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front “selfie” camera. For connectivity it has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, a microUSB 2.0 connector and a 2,750mAh battery. The phone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
With this set of configuration, the phone will have a stiff competition from the newly launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 which is being sold at Rs. 11,998 on Amazon and Lenovo K5 Plus’ hardware isn’t that impressive compared to Redmi Note 3. However, correct pricing of the device may make this one a successful phone.
