Lenovo’s comeback in the Philippine mobile business has finally happened.

It starts with the affordable Lenovo K5 Play. Released way back in 2018, it’s no surprise that this device has outdated hardware and Android 8.0 Oreo software. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor, with a 5.7-inch HD screen, and a 3,000mAh battery.


It has thick bezels on top for the 8-megapixel selfie camera, while on the back we have a 13-megapixel primary camera, 2-megapixel depth sensor, and the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The Lenovo K5 Play has a price of Php3,990 in the Philippines.
