After about two years, Lenovo is finally re-entering the highly competitive Philippine smartphone market. Still part of the technology brand’s ‘Lenovo Summer Sale’ summer campaign launched in the last week of May, the company has announced the availability of three new smartphone models through its online portals and partner stores nationwide.
Initially, Lenovo is introducing three new entry-level smartphones that are designed to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and better connectivity—the Lenovo K5 Play, the Lenovo K5 Pro, and the Lenovo S5 Pro.
“Our new smartphones bring people closer with integrated AI, powerful mobile processors, intuitive camera setups, and advanced biometric security at a lower price point,” said Lenovo Philippines President and General Manager Michael Ngan. “Ultimately, these devices and accessories will help create a more inclusive, trustworthy, and sustainable digital society for everyone.”
The new Lenovo smartphones are offering value for money combined with advanced features like multiple camera setups and advanced chipsets. “We want to offer a model for every type of user. Expect our new smartphones to carry the ThinkPad DNA with the same technology found in our PC devices, including some attributes such as enhanced security and power,” Ngan said.
