Full of ambitions Lenovo declared “war” to Xiaomi and its mobile devices in an effort to get back on the limelight in their home country, China. All of this would start here with the announcement of hostility if aggressive comparisons with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. Now with the Lenovo S5 already announced we have good news for fans of this brand.
His new product came to the fore after the marketing campaign filled with comparisons and ostentation to Xiaomi and its products. Now, Lenovo tells us that its new product sold out in just two minutes during the first lightning sale that took place on March 23.
All available units of the Lenovo S5, the declared rival of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will have sold out in just 2 minutes in their native country. Here we have to point out that we do not know how many smartphones were available in the first batch. Faced with this we have to temper our expectations.
However, although we did not know how many units were available for purchase, it is true that the reserves for the first lot had the participation of 250 thousand interested parties. A quarter of a million consumers will have flocked to the first lightning sale or flash sale of the Lenovo S5.
Lenovo S5, a rival of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5
The popularity of this declared rival of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 can also be justified by its appearance. Note that his whole look is very similar to the Xiaomi Mi A1, the OPPO R11 or even the OnePlus 5T, the current top of the range of this brand. What’s more, we can even compare your looks with Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, at least by looking at your backside. Already on the front, the Lenovo S5 has an 18: 9 screen, being narrower and convenient to use with one hand.
