The Vibe K5 will go on open sale from July 4, 2016. The phone is expected to be priced at Rs. 6,999 and will be available through Amazon. Feel free to check out the product page linked below. Let’s take a look at the specifications on this phone.
Specifications – Lenovo Vibe K5
The Lenovo Vibe K5 comes with a 5 inch IPS display that has a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. That translates to a pixel density of 294 pixels. The Vibe K5 has a 1.4 Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 processor and an Adreno 405 GPU to go with it. Add to that a 2 GB RAM and the Vibe K5 becomes a very enticing option for customers to ignore in its price segment. The phone has 16 GB internal storage capacity which can is expandable up to 32 GB using a microSD card slot. That is good internal storage capacity for this price segment.
The primary camera on the phone is a 13 megapixel unit which supports LED flash and video recording of 1080 pixels at 30 fps. The camera also has the auto focus feature which is pretty common in smartphones these days. The secondary camera is a 5 megapixel unit. Lenovo phones usually have a decent selfie camera so we expect the Vibe K5 to not disappoint its customers.

The Lenovo Vibe K5 is a dual-SIM phone with 4G connectivity. One really good thing about the Vibe K5 is that it weighs just 142 grams. That is a really lightweight phone for any price segment and form factor but the fact that Lenovo pulls it off in the budget-phone segment, and with dimensions of 142 x 71 x 7.99 mm, is commendable.
The battery capacity of the phone is 2750 mAh. Once again an impressive specification. Few leading smartphone brands have been able to offer battery capacity of over 2500 mAh for quality smartphones in that price segment. While we have seen the likes of Micromax and Intex regularly dish out such specifications, most of Lenovo’s Chinese counterparts and global competitors have failed to do so with any recurring degree of success.
The company claims that the battery will last up to 32 hours of talktime using a 2G network on a single full charge. The standby time for the Vibe K5’s battery is expected to be 15 days on a single full charge. The Lenovo Vibe K5 is powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop OS.
The Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus is also a quality budget phone
The Vibe K5’s cousin, the Vibe K5 Plus is one of the best phones in the sub-8,000 price segment. Lenovo has not shied away from offering great phones in every price segment unlike some of its more fancied competitors so it is no surprise that the Vibe K5 Plus comes out all guns blazing despite their being a really good variant available for a lesser price.
For anyone looking for a quality smartphone in the Rs. 6,500 – Rs. 8,000 price segment I would recommend choosing between these two Lenovo phones according to their budget.
