Lenovo took the K5 Note from 2016 and updated it with better hardware and modern design to come up with a spin on it — the Lenovo K5 Note 2018.

The new smartphone will join the new K5 and K5 Lite in Lenovo’s new budget-friendly lineup. But unlike the first two, the Lenovo K5 Note 2018 has a bigger screen, faster processor, and overall better specs.

Announced alongside the Lenovo 5Z, the Lenovo K5 Note 2018 packs a 6-inch HD+ screen with an HD+ resolution. It doesn’t have a display notch, but it sports ultra-thin bezels on the left and right both sides.


Lenovo K5 Note 2018 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor and is available in either a 3GB/64GB model or a 4GB/64GB variant. On the front, there’s an 8-megapixel selfie camera for selfies. Meanwhile, a 16-megapixel rear camera is partnered with a 2-megapixel secondary sensor for the portrait mode.
