While the Lenovo K4 Note will go on sale on Amazon India today, Lenovo has also introduced a full-metal body K5 Note smartphone in China.
The new Lenovo K5 Note packs a lot of improvement over the K4 Note such as an all-metal body. Another highlight feature of the handset is its fingerprint scanner, placed below the camera module on the rear panel, though a similar sensor is on board the Vibe K4 Note as well. The handset also packs Dolby Atmos powered speakers which was a highlight on the K4 Note as well. The cost of Lenovo K5 Note is ¥1,099, which is approximately $167, when it will be launched in the market in China at the beginning of February. This phone comes with some admirable specification.
