Lenovo's Vibe K5, which is being sold via flash sale since mid-June, will be offered without registration in India next month.

Lenovo, while announcing that it sold 48,500 units in the third Vibe K5 flash sale, revealed that the company will host an open sale on Amazon India from July 4.

This move by the company has brought a cheer among fans. Previously, there was no guarantee that they would get their hands on it, despite timely registrations, as the sale process would get over in seconds. Now, consumers can buy the Vibe K5 at any time next week onwards.

Having Vibe K5 availability issues sorted out, now Lenovo has to focus on increasing the inventory capacity of the ZUK Z1. The company has been hosting the flash sale of the mid-range phone category for close to two months. Many believe, it's time for Lenovo to offer ZUK Z1 via open sale or else the device will lose out on rivals like the popular Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Moto G4 series, Asus Zenfone Max, among others, which house similar powerful hardware and are easily available for purchase.
