The Lenovo K8 Note (2018) sports a 6-inch FullScreen display with a resolution of HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The specs on paper are identical to the Xiaomi’s Redmi 5 while it also competes with the dual camera smartphones in the segment such as the newly launched Honor 7C.

Unlike the previous version which uses the MediaTek chip, the Lenovo K5 Note is powered by Snapdragon 450 and up to 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage running on the Android 8.1 Oreo with ZUI 3.9 on top. The base variant starts from 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage and the storage can be expanded via microSD card offered as a separate slot.

The backside has a fingerprint scanner and dual 16 MP + 2 MP (f/2.0 + f/2.4) rear cameras alongside an 8 MP f/2.0 on the front. The dual cameras offer bokeh mode which blurs the background and keeps the object in focus.

Lenovo also announced the A5 which is a budget entrant. The Lenovo A5, on the other hand, runs from MediaTek MT6739 SoC, 3 GB RAM and a single 13 MP camera and an 8 MP camera on the rear side and front side respectively. It packs a huge 4,000 mAh battery, larger than the K5 Note (2018).

There are three color variants of the K5 Note (2018) – Black, Gold and Blue colors. The price starts at 799 yuan (equivalent to ~$125 or ~Rs 8,375 for base variant while the top variant costs 999 yuan ($156 or ~Rs 10,472). The Lenovo A5 comes in Black, Gold and Rose Gold colors and starts at 599 yuan (~$93.50 or ~Rs 6,277) for 16 GB variant.
