Lenovo launches K5 Note, an affordable full HD, all-metal phablet

Having recently made comments that it is seeking to make fewer handsets this year than last, Lenovo is making some contradictory moves in the smartphone market. The manufacturer has launched the all-metal K5 Note in China, and the mid-range smartphone makes its way to market in the same month the K4 Note landed in India. Color me confused.

Regardless, the Lenovo K5 Note will cost ¥1,099 (approx 7) when it lands on Chinese store shelves at the beginning of February. For that money, the phone offers some admirable specifications.

As well as being made from aluminum, it has a full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution 5.5-inch screen boasting a pixel density of around 401ppi. It also features a 1.8GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor paired with 2GB and 16GB storage (expandable up to 128GB). A 3,500mAh battery should ensure that it goes at least a full day on a single charge.

Other key features include a 13MP f/2.2 rear camera with phase detection auto-focus and 1080p video recording, as well as an 8MP front-facing camera. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with Lenovo’s own Vibe UI on top. The device measures 8.5mm thin, making it slightly thicker than most flagship phones, but is by no means bulky. It also has a fingerprint sensor on the back, as is normal with modern smartphones.

With the low-mid tier markets becoming full of metal devices equipped with high-end specs, it’ll be interesting to see who comes out on top this year. Will Lenovo’s devices have a chance of competing with the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi or OnePlus?

Lenovo ‘seriously thinking about’ a Yoga Book with Chrome OS

One of the highlights of IFA 2016 last week, at least from Lenovo, was the company’s very unique 2-in-1, the Yoga Book. Running your choice of Android or Windows, the Yoga Book brings a 10.1-inch display on one side, with a special touchpad which doubles as a keyboard on the opposite side. Lenovo has put a skin atop Android to let it take better advantage of the hardware, but at first glance, the Yoga Book seems better suited to run on Chrome OS, and apparently, Lenovo has the same idea…

Lenovo Phab2 Pro Review: Tango is impressive and awesome, but this device isn’t for everyone [Video]

A few years ago when Google announced Project Tango, it was something impressive, allowing our devices to see the world around us with detail they never could before. However, it felt like something so futuristic that we’d never see it. Then, Google released a 7-inch Tango developer kit to show off the tech. It was cool, but expensive and not at all aimed at consumers.

Then, in early 2016, Google and Lenovo announced plans to release the world’s first consumer device running Tango, and needless to say, we were pretty excited.

Now, that device is here ─ the Lenovo Phab2 Pro. I’ve been using this giant, powerful, impressive phone for the past several days, so let’s answer the question, who should actually buy it?
