Lenovo recently announced the K6 Note, a successor to their popular Lenovo K5 Note model. It doesn’t bring many changes, but is it advanced enough to pick it over K5 Note? Find out here.
Dimensions, Design, Display
Since two models sport the same sized display, their dimensions should be very similar, although we can’t confirm that since there is no info on Lenovo K6 Note dimensions at the moment.
Two models are practically the same design-wise and are looking almost identical. We don’t have a winner in this segment.
Both the Lenovo K5 Note and K6 Note feature a 1080p, 5.5-icnh, IPS LCD display, offering great viewing angles, rich colors and a high sharpness (401ppi pixel density).
Lenovo K5 Note is powered by MediaTek Helio P10 chipset (4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 along with Mali-T860MP2 GPU); combined with 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM (depends on the model), K5 Note offers plenty of power. The phone is equipped with 32 GB of expandable (uses SIM-2 slot for microSD card) internal storage.
Lenovo K6 Note features Snapdragon 430 chipset (Octa-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 in combination with Adreno 505) along with 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable internal storage.
Chipsets used in two models have pretty much the same power, so there won’t be any massive performance gains with K6 Note.
The Lenovo K5 Note is equipped with a 13 MP (f/2.2) main snapper capable of recording 1080p@30fps video. The front-facing camera has an 5MP lens.
Lenovo K6 Note features a slightly better 16 MP main camera, also capable of recording 1080p@30fps video. The selfie one has a resolution of 8MP, three megapixels more than the one featured on Note K5.
Lenovo K5 Note is equipped with a big 3500mAh battery, which should last up to two days without the need for a charge. The K6 Note has an improved capacity, 4000 mAh battery, a solid step forward in comparison to K5 Note. Both models feature a fingerprint sensor. Lenovo Note K5 comes with Android v5.1 while K6 brings Android v6.0.
A slightly bigger battery, the same display, a bit sharper camera, and a newer version of Android can’t really be described as major improvements. If Lenovo K6 Note ships with the same price as K5 Note (Rs. 13,499 for the 4 GB of RAM model), it will be a solid choice. However, if the price of K6 Note ends up being $30 higher or more, Lenovo K5 Note will be a better choice for almost anybody.
