Lenovo on Tuesday launched its two new budget smartphone the A5 and the K5 Note in China. Both the Smartphone are pretty similar in terms of hardware and specifications. Lenovo launched the two smartphones, alongside its flagship Lenovo Z5 smartphone which comes with some premium specs including 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor, Dual Rear cameras, near the bezel-less display.

Lenovo K5 Note (2018), Lenovo A5 price

Lenovo K5 Note has been priced in China at CNY 799 (roughly Rs. 8,400) for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage variant and CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 10,500) for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage variant. The smartphone will be available in Black, Gold, and Blue color models.

The Lenovo A5, on the other hand, is priced at CNY 599 (roughly Rs. 6,300). It will be available in Black, Gold, and Rose Gold variants.

Lastly, both the smartphone seems pretty similar in terms of specs but what you get more with the K5 Note by paying around RS. 2,000 extra is the Snapdragon 636 processor, a 16-megapixel camera which I think would be a better choice to go with.
