Lenovo Announces VIBE K5 Plus: High Specs, Low Price

The company has priced the Lenovo Vibe K5 at $129, whereas the Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus at $149.

Our hands-on demo at MWC was very brief and we can tell you right now that the device feels like any other sub-Rs 10,000 smartphone.

The Lenovo VIBE K5 Plus (also sold as Lenovo K5 Plus) will be available in select countries where Lenovo smartphones are sold starting in March for $149(USD).

With a price difference of only $20 between Vibe K5 and Vibe K5 Plus, it will be a tough decision for customers to make a choice.

The 5-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display, octa-core Snapdragon 616 processor and 13 MP camera at the heart of the Vibe K5 Plus aren't going to impress anyone paying attention to the specs behind the top-flight phones available today. It has a support of Adreno 405 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using microSD card slot. It measures 75.6×9.9×152.9mm, weighs 187 grams, and houses connectivity features such as NFC, USB OTG, FM Radio, A-GPS, Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, and Wi-Fi Hotspot.

Lenovo, of more accurately, the fourth most prolific smartphone manufacturer of 2015, has announced its two new devices - the Lenovo Vibe K5 and Lenovo Vibe K5 PlusLenovo is marketing them as audio-centric devices, which it justifies with the included Dolby Atmos support and dual speaker setup. Under the hood, the Vibe K5 is powered by the Snapdragon 415 clocked at 1.4GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM.

The Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus also features a 2750mAh battery, which should provide users with decent battery life, although we'd need to confirm this with tests. The Plus will be 8.2mm thick and weigh 142g; by comparison, an iPhone 6s comes in at 7.1mm and 143g - but it's a smaller-screened phone with a bigger price tag. Pricing for this model starts at $129(USD).
