Lenovo brings out another attractive budget device in the Vibe K5


Lenovo is spicing up the low-end of the market with a brand new smartphone, the Vibe K5 which you can pick up for below RM600. We saw this device earlier during the Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona and now Lenovo has brought it to our shores.

Being entry-level, you won’t find monster specs, but the Vibe K5 isn’t exactly a slouch either. The 5-inch device packs an HD 720p display with a Snapdragon 415 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. Helping to keep things smooth is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card.

It will come running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and has a 13MP/5MP rear/front camera combo. Keeping the lights on is a 2,750 mAh battery which is reasonable for this price point and screen size.


The device also supports dual-SIM 4G LTE connectivity, 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi support and Bluetooth 4.1. To sweeten the deal, Lenovo has equipped the Vibe K5 with dual rear-facing Dolby Atmos speakers which should provide a pretty smartphone audio experience.


The smartphone will come in three colour options — Platinum Silver, Champagne Gold and Graphite Gray — and will be priced at RM599. You can pick one up today at all authorised Lenovo retailers.

At this kind of price point, the Vibe K5 is going up against the likes of the Redmi 2 (RM399) and the Flash 2 (RM559) which makes it a pretty compelling smartphone.
