Lenovo Vibe K5 Note crossses Rs 100 crores in sales since launch

The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note has become India's fastest selling smartphone with sales of Rs 100 crores since going for sale on August 4.

Published onAugust 9, 2016

The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note has become the fastest selling smartphone in India, after achieving sales of Rs 100 crores since its launch. According to Lenovo’s latest press release, Flipkart, its exclusive seller for the Vibe K5 Note, has sold units worth Rs 100 crores (~$15 million) of the handset after it went on sale in India on August 4.

This isn’t too surprising, given the huge amount of consumer interest that surrounded the launch, along with the fact that in our comparison of the Vibe K5 Note with other high quality, affordable smartphones in the Indian market, we found that the device did have a lot to offer.

The Vibe K5 Note comes with an upgrade in build quality and design to a full metal unibody construction, as well as subtle curves along the sides, and the top and bottom, at the back. Other upgrades included a more powerful processor, extra gig of RAM, increased expandable storage, and bumped up front camera resolution, when compared to its predecessor.

The Vibe K5 Note features a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD, the octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor, clocked at 1.8 GHz, either 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of on-board storage, which can be further expanded up to 128 GB via a microSD card. A 13 MP ISOCELL camera, with phase detection auto focus and dual LED flash in the rear, along with an 8 MP front-facing shooter round out what should be a good camera package, and keeping everything running is a large 3,500 mAh battery.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Note launch

If you are looking to get into the virtual reality (VR) game, you’ll find the K5 Note an irresistible buy because it comes with support for Lenovo’s TheatreMax technology, along with the ANT VR headset, for converting any games and videos into VR. Lenovo has also thrown in Amkette’s Evo Pad 2 precision controller for TheaterMax gaming along with the Vibe K5 Note. It’s no small wonder then that about 30 percent of those who purchased the Vibe K5 Note also opted for the TheaterMax accessories in the inaugural sales, as claimed by Lenovo.

Lenovo has also priced the Vibe K5 Note very competitively, with the 3GB RAM version selling for Rs 11,999 (~$180) and the 4GB RAM version for Rs 13,499 (~$202) exclusively at Flipkart. Despite facing some stiff competition in the Indian market from other budget-friendly handsets, such as Moto G4 Plus, Xiaomi Mi Max, and the LeEco Le 2, the Vibe K5 Note still appears to be doing quite well for itself.
