Lenovo apparently planned to release a Windows 10 handset sometime in 2015. However, that plan didn’t materialize. Now, a fresh leak from China shows the company has not scrapped the project after all.
A new Windows 10-powered Lenovo phablet made an appearance at a Microsoft event in China yesterday, Nokia Power User reported. Going by the leaked image, a shimmery metal frame runs through the edges of the handset and it has well-rounded corners.
The brand Lenovo can be seen on the top-left corner, while a button embedded with a Windows logo is at the bottom of the phablet. Even though the screen size is unknown at this point, it looks more like a mini tablet from the looks of it and the size could easily be more than 6.0-inches.
Apart from the unnamed phablet, Lenovo just introduced a new smartphone called “Vibe K5 Plus.” Portal Gadgets 360 said this device is an upgrade to the well-received Lenovo A6000 and Lenovo A6000 Plus. The K5 Plus will apparently be priced at 8,499 rupees, which roughly translates to $127.
Spec-wise, the Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus features a 5.0-inch display and 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, a 64-bit octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 616) SoC powers the device with an integrated Adreno 405 GPU on board. These configurations come backed by 2 GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
The Vibe K5 comes equipped with 16 GB of native storage space and microSD card slot for expansion of up to 128 GB. Apart from the standard connectivity options like Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1 LE and microUSB ports, this dual-SIM handset supports 4G on both SIMs.
When it comes to camera specification, this smartphone houses a 13-megapixel rear-facing sensor with LED flash. In addition, there is a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies. On the software end, the Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, along with custom Vibe UI running on top of it.
