Lenovo K5 plus [3GB] has been priced aggressively at around Rs 8,499 as compared to the 2GB RAM variant which was priced at Rs. 7,999. The only difference we have seen is in the memory department. The open sale will start from August 3 23:59 through Flipkart.
Lenovo K5 Plus 3GB Specifications:
Display:Lenovo K5 Plus has a 5” Full HD screen with a pixel density of 441ppi, brightness is about 450nits and the viewing angle is 178-degree. This screen is best in the current price segment however there is no mention of a protection on screen.

RAM and Storage: It has a 3GB RAM and an internal storage of 16GB which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.
Operating System: K5 Plus currently runs on Lenovo Pure UI based on Android 5.1 we have to see whether it will get updated to Marshmallow.
Battery: A 2750mAh removable battery powers the whole phone. However, it seems insufficient for the whole day as it has a Full HD display and an octacore CPU but Lenovo Claims a stand by time of 142 hours (2G) 7.99 hours (3G).

Lack Fingerprint sensor and protection on screen disappoints a little bit but you cannot complain at such a price. There is also a screen protector in the box which can be installed on the phone however, it is better to use a high quality tempered glass on your phone. This phone comes when there is already a competition between phones like Redmi Note 3, Meizu M3 Note and LeEco 1s in the similar price range but Lenovo has hit the right strings in the memory and processor department. Specifications look good in the paper but we have to wait until its sale on August 3.
