[CES 2013] So Lenovo’s going to take the plunge into the highly competitive smartphone game, and their effort has resulted in the Lenovo Ideaphone K5 which will strangely enough, be made available in countries such as China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, India and Russia. No idea on why Europe and North America has been given the snub at the moment though. The Lenovo Ideaphone K5 will feature a non-magnetic alloy in its slim body, sporting a polycarbonate unibody chassis that measures less than 7.3mm in thickness. It also lays claim to being the first 5″ display with Full HD resolution at 400+ PPI pixel density, although

I am quite sure that other smartphone manufacturers have something to say about that.

The cameras on the Lenovo Ideaphone K5 are also worth mentioning, with a F1.8 shooter at the back which touts the widest ever aperture on a smartphone to deliver great looking low light photos, aided by the Exmor BSI sensor that captures high resolution images at 13-megapixels. A dual-core graphics processor and Intel hyper-threading technology is said to help the Lenovo Ideaphone K5 chug along nicely without batting an eyelid. Will this turn out to be a decent gaming smartphone? Time will tell.
