Lenovo Vibe K5, Vibe K5 Plus, and K5 Note Launched in PH!

Lenovo K5 Series

The Lenovo Vibe K5 series has officially been launched in the country, featuring the Vibe K5, Vibe K5 Plus, and the Vibe K5 Note. The series continues to focus on a better multimedia experience, with all three phones coming with Dolby Atmos audio enhancement.

The Lenovo Vibe K5 is the entry level handset of the three. It packs a 5 inch HD screen, Snapdragon 415 octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. It’s a modest yet capable smartphone, although what’s most attractive about it is probably the price. For just Php6,999, you’re getting everything most people would need in a phone.

Other key specs include a 13mp primary camera on the back and 5mp shooter in front for selfies, It also supports 4G/LTE while running Lollipop 5.1 out of the box. Finally, the Vibe K5 is powered by a modest 2,750mAh battery.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus

The Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus is essentially an enhanced K5 and even looks indistinguishable when placed side by side. While it packs a similar-sized 5 inch screen, it’s still the more premium of the two smartphones thanks to a higher resolution Full HD panel and more powerful Snapdragon 616 octa-core processor. Beyond that though, there’s not much that separates the two.

It does come with 3GB RAM but retains 16GB of internal storage. It supports 4G/LTE and comes with a 13mp/5mp camera configuration. It even mimics the Vibe K5 right down to its 2,750mAh battery and running Lollipop 5.1 out of the box.

VR Mode

One key aspect that does distinguish it from the K5 is its built-in VR capabilities. Its VR Split Screen mode automatically splits the screen so it can work with VR headsets. It even comes bundled with a VR headset and controller so you can take advantage of these capabilities right away.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus Specs

  • 5″ Full HD IPS display (1080 x 1920 resolution, 441ppi)
  • 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8929 Snapdragon 415 octa-core processor

Lenovo Vibe K5 Note

Lenovo Vibe K5 Note

The clear upgrade of the three though is the Vibe K5 Note. It packs a larger 5.5 inch Full HD display and is driven by the new Helio P10 octa-core processor. It also comes with 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13mp/8mp camera configuration, and 4G/LTE. Like the K5 Plus, it too comes with a built-in VR mode and bundled VR headset and controller. Unfortunately, it too also runs Lollipop 5.1 out of the box.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Note Specs

  • 5.5″ Full HD IPS display (1080 x 1920 resolution, 401ppi)
  • 1.8GHz MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor
  • Mali 860 MP2 GPU
  • Lollipop 5.1
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage, expandable via microSD up 128GB
  • 4G/LTE, dual SIM (2x micro)
  • WiFi b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • GPS with A-GPS
  • 3,500mAh battery
  • Micro USB 2.0 port, USB OTG supported

The Lenovo K5 series are fairly compelling, especially with the Vibe K5 Plus and Vibe K5 Note coming bundled with their own VR headsets and controllers. It’s interesting to see how well they’ll perform going against our competitively priced local smartphones.

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
