We know that Lenovo is going to launch the K5 Note in India on August 1 as the company has started teasing the same since the past few days. Now, the company has revealed that the device will arrive with 4 GB of RAM India.
Notably, the Chinese variant of the K5 Note that was launched in the company's homeland earlier this year carries a price tag of 1,099 Yuan (approx. Rs 11,300) and it features just 2 GB of RAM. So, we can expect the K5 Note to be priced somewhere around Rs 15,000 in India to make it aggressive.
Talking of the 4 GB RAM smartphones, the Mi Max from Xiaomi also comes in a 4 GB RAM variant that is yet to be released in India. It is priced at Rs 19,999 and we are yet to get a confirmation from Xiaomi on when this device will be available for purchase.
Now, we have come up with a comparison between the two to know which 4 GB RAM phone you can purchase. Take a look at the comparison from here.
The Lenovo K5 Note and Mi Max are made of metal and it comes in Silver and Gold color variants. While the Mi Max is thinner with measuring just 7.5 mm in thickness, the Lenovo offering is relatively thicker measuring 8.49 mm.

The Lenovo device boasts a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p IPS display. On the other hand, the Xiaomi Mi Max sports a 6.44-inch Full HD 1080p IPS 2.5D curved glass display. To protect the display from scratches, there is Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on top of the screen.
Processor and Storage
The Lenovo K5 Note is powered by a 1.8 GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor. Going by the comparison, the Mi Max is energized by a 1.8 GHz hexa-core Snapdragon 650 processor operating under its hood. While there is 32 GB of storage in the Xiaomi device, there is just 16 GB of storage capacity in the K5 Note. Further, there is support for expandable storage support on both the handsets.
In terms of imaging optics, the K5 Note boasts a 13 MP rear camera teamed up with dual-tone LED flash, PDAF, and f/2.2 aperture. There is an 8 MP front-facing camera with 77.4-degree wide angle lens. On the other hand, the Mi Max flaunts a 16 MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash and PDAF. At the front, the Xiaomi phablet has a 5 MP camera with 85-degree wide-angle lens and f/2.0 aperture.
Both the devices run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but the K5 Note is topped with the Vibe UI, whereas the Xiaomi Mi Max is topped with MIUI 8 out of the box.
Both the devices are packed with connectivity features such as 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and dual-SIM support. Also, both have a fingerprint scanner on them to make them secure. The Mi Max has a USB Type-C port as well.
While the K5 Note is powered by a 3,500 mAh battery, but the Xiaomi Mi Max with a larger footprint draws power from a mammoth 4,850 mAh battery that is non-removable.
