Lenovo K series launched

Lenovo Philippines has launched the Lenovo VIBE K series of smartphones, which include the flagship VIBE K5 Note, VIBE K5 Plus, and VIBE K5.

The new smartphones boast of aluminum metal casing to give them the premium look, fingerprint scanner, as well as hardware specs to handle all the entertainment and multimedia tasks.

One distinguishing feature of the new VIBE K series is the TheaterMax Experience, which was introduced first by Lenovo to its previous flagship the VIBE K4 Note.

Lenovo’s TheaterMax technology runs as a software in the phones. It allows videos played on the phone, any video for that matter, to be played in a split screen so viewing the video using the VR headset would be truly an immersive experience, according to Vincent dela Cruz, marketing manager Lenovo Philippines smartphones.
