The Lenovo S5 Pro, K5 Pro, K5s All Announced With Quadruple Cameras

The Lenovo S5 Pro, K5 Pro, and K5s cement the now trendy quadruple camera offerings among major smartphone manufacturers.

The Chinese tech giant Lenovo has officially announced a trio of smartphones with very notable camera offerings. The Lenovo S5 Pro, the Lenovo K5 Pro, and the Lenovo K5s represent two mid-end iterations and one entry-level device. The heart of their specifications? The generous quadruple cameras.

Lenovo S5 Pro

The mid-ranger Lenovo S5 Pro features a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2246 pixels. It's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, coupled with 6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of internal storage and an Adreno 509 GPU for the graphics department. The device's rear packs a dual 12MP + 20MP camera setup while its front notch also houses 20 MP + 8MP camera sensors.

Other notable features are a USB Type-C connectivity, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, an Infrared face recognition feature, Bluetooth 5.0, and a 3,500mAh battery. Running the show is last year's Android Oreo ver. 8.1.

The Lenovo S5 Pro currently retails for CNY 1,300 (around PHP 10,000) for the 6GB/64GB variant. The more beefed up variant's pricing still remains to be revealed. The device can now be reserved on Lenovo's official site and should ship out starting on October 23.

Lenovo K5 Pro

Another entry in the mid-end segment is the Lenovo K5 Pro. The handset boasts of a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. It's fueled by the same Snapdragon chipset that powers the S5 Pro. The SoC is coupled with 4GB/6GB RAM tiers and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The main camera setup is somewhat different to that of its sibling as it features dual 16MP + 5MP camera sensors on its rear, and its front-facing cameras sport the same dual-camera sensors.

The Lenovo K5 Pro also sports a UBS Type-C connectivity and a rear-mounted fingerprint reader. It also runs on Android 8.1 Oreo but it's juiced by a 4,050mAh battery with 18W QuickCharge 3.0 support.

On the other hand, the top-end 6GB/128GB edition comes with a price of CNY 1,300 (around PHP 10,100). Its official sales are set to begin on Oct. 25 in China.

Lenovo K5s

The least premium of the three, the Lenovo K5s, is by no means less powered up. The entry-level smartphone features a 5.7-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. It's propelled by a MediaTek Helio P22 (MTK6762) which is supported by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage on-board. The device also packs quadruple cameras, which are a rare treat in this segment. The rear has 13MP + 5MP camera sensors; the same set of dual cameras is also housed at the notch-less front display of the device. Down the line, you'll find a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a dated Micro USB connectivity, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

The Lenovo K5s comes with an attractive price tag of CNY 798 (around PHP 6,200). Pre-orders for the device have already commenced, with its availability to begin on October 23 in its mainland as well.

There's no word on when the trio will make its way to the Philippines. Nonetheless, Lenovo has been launching budget-friendly devices that pack quite a punch recently, and it would be a waste if they decided to skip our market. Sadly, all we can do for now is wait for an official announcement from the company.
