Lenovo K5 Note (2018) is probably the most interesting smartphone presented today by a Chinese manufacturer. However, it is not the latest novelty, as Lenovo also introduced the new SmartWatch – Watch X.
The Lenovo Z5 turned out to be a huge disappointment. We all waited for the smartphone without indentation in the screen with the same thickness of frames around the display. Meanwhile, he just debuted another average with a note and Snapdragon 636. You can read more about this model in Damian's entry. I, however, encourage you to read other news that seems to make sense – Lenovo K5 Note (2018) and Lenovo Watch X (Plus) . The first is the average successor of 2016, while SmartWatch retires the Lenovo Watch 9 model.
Lenovo K5 Note (2018) is a sensible medium
Due to the year in which the Lenovo K5 Note debuts (2018), the smartphone is quite different from its predecessor. It has a display with 18: 9 aspect ratio, as well as a set of two lenses on the back wall. Lenses, which, after all, must refer to Apple products. Sarcasm, however, I leave and go to particulars. The performance of the Lenovo K5 Note (2018) is the responsibility of Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 with the Adreno 506 graphics chip . This is undoubtedly a good SoC chip for mid-range smartphones, as it offers performance at a similar level to Snapdragon 625. Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 has been used in many interesting smartphones, including HTC Desire 12+, Honor 7C, or also Xiaomi Redmi 5. In addition, there is a decent amount of RAm memory, which in the case of the strongest version is 4GB. This is definitely enough in these days. Lenovo in the K5 Note (2018) model has set a six-inch display with traditional corners with the aspect ratio of 18: 9 , which was made in IPS technology, and the content is displayed in HD + resolution (1440 x 1080 pixels). The strength of the Lenovo K5 Note (2018) is the traditional (dual) nanoSIM card slot as well as the microSD card reader. And that means that you will not have to give up the benefits offered by dualSIM for the further expansion of memory which in the case of this model is 32GB or 64GB, which was normally reduced by the system. The other technical specification includes:
- Android 8.1 Oreo with ZUI 3.9 interface
- dual main camera – 16 MP with aperture F / 2.0 + 2 MP with light F / 2.4
- fingerprint reader on the rear panel
- camera for Selfie 8M (F / 2.0)
- RAM memory: 3GB or 4GB
- 3760 mAh battery
- dimensions: 158.3 × 76.7 × 8.5 mm
- Weight: 176 grams
Three color variants will be available on sale: black, gold, as well as blue. Lenovo K5 Note (2018) with 3 GB / 32 GB was priced at only 799 yuan (about 460 PLN net). For a more powerful model (4GB / 64GB) you will need to pay 999 yuan (~ 573 PLN net).
Lenovo Watch X and Lenovo Watch X Plus
The strong point of Lenovo Watch X (as well as Watch X Plus) is its appearance , and more specifically the classic analog dial, which makes the smart watch look more traditional. Of course, there was also a monochrome OLED display. The envelope is made of stainless steel. (316L). The shield is protected by sapphire glass of 9H hardness class. Lenovo Watch X is resistant to water pressures up to 8 ATM. The specification also includes: a barometer, a heart rate monitor, a pressure gauge, a gyroscope, a gravity sensor, and a magnetometer . Energy is provided by a 600 mAh battery that will guarantee up to 45 days in watch mode. It's worth knowing that only the barometer and sphygmomanometer are present in the Lenovo Watch X Plus . The remaining specification also for the Lenovo Watch X model. The SmartWatch communicates with the smartphone via Bluetooth 5.0 LE. Three variants will be available on sale, which are as follows:
