The Lenovo K5 Note was initially supposed to land in India on July 20, but has been delayed to August 1 instead. The brand has been actively trying to play up the hype over the smartphone to fill in the days before its launch.
Its latest tweets reveal that the Lenovo K5 Note will pack an impressive 4GB of RAM. This marks a major upgrade over the original Chinese variant which came out back in January this year. That particular version only carried 2GB of RAM. The increase in RAM will probably be welcomed by fans interested in buying the handset.
However, there’s no way to tell whether the boost in RAM will also result in a rise in its price. The 2GB Chinese model went for CNY 1099 (roughly Rs 11350). Other than the RAM, Lenovo hasn’t mentioned any other changes which one can expect in the Indian version of the device.
It had previously promoted the K5 Note with a tweet which contained an image of a cinema hall. This likely indicates the brand is planning to equip the smartphone with its TheaterMax technology to render games and movies in a widescreen format, viewable via a VR headset. It might even follow in its predecessor’s footsteps and get bundled with the AntVR headset.
