The Dolby Atmos has been one of the Lenovo's prominent technology over the ages. The Vibe K5 Note also comes with support for Dolby Atmos and Lenovo has further tweaked this feature a bit.

These accessories will be available from the e-commerce site Flipkart.
Additional Fingerprint sensor functionalities
The fingerprint sensor on the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note is placed on the back within of the index finger. The fingerprint sensor is not just a sensor to unlock the smartphone, but it can also be programmed for other functionalities such as triggering selfies, doubling as a home key and much more. All these features can be accessible by heading over to the fingerprint management section in the ‘Settings' option.
Volume Button Picture Snap
The Vibe K5 Note also has support for the Lenovo's 'Quick-Snap' feature which helps in capturing a picture when your device is locked.

Just like the other Chinese manufacturers, Lenovo also bundles a theme engine with its Vibe UI. As of now, the Vibe UI comes with only six preinstalled themes and there is no option to download themes from Play Store, however, Lenovo will be adding the support in coming days.
VR Split screen support
Lenovo is integrating the VR split screen support within the Vibe UI itself, as other smartphones require an additional application to split the screen in order to support the VR mode. Pressing the power button in the Vibe K5 Note shows up an option to enable to VR mode.
