The Chinese handset maker, Lenovo has finally learnt its lesson from past launches and is now launching pocket friendly powerful smartphones. Lenovo marked its coming of edge with the pocket friendly Lenovo A6000 and went on to launch Lenovo K3 Note, a device with right features in right price. Recently, the brand has launched Lenovo K4 Note in India and the device has been received very well by Indian customers even before it went on sale. Now the brand has gone ahead and has launched the next device in the lineup called Lenovo K5 Note as well. Here is what is known about the next handset so far.
Fingerprint Scanner: This handset comes with a fingerprint scanner on its rear panel, just like its successor did. The scanner has been designed to stay on all the time and recognises the fingerprint instantly.
Dolby Atmos powered speakers: This handset is a delight to the multimedia and movie lovers owing to the enhanced audio output. Lenovo has equipped the new handset with Dolby Atnos powered speakers just like the predecessor and the audio is quite impressive to say the least.
Theatermax and ANT VR headset: Just like the predecessor, Vibe K5 Note also comes with the Theatermax technology integrated in the software. This allows the handset to adopt to VR technology better than any other device in this segment.
Uninspired design: While Lenovo K4 Note came with a new design for the brand, Vibe K5 Note fails to impress us on this front. It does come with a premium metal design, however, the design of the device is quite similar to the Redmi Note 3.
