BARCELONA — You no longer have to shell out a ton of money for a smartphone with great audio.

Lenovo's Vibe K5 Plus, announced at Mobile World Congress, is a budget phone that comes with Dolby Atmos, a mobile surround sound experience normally reserved for high-end devices like the LG G4 or HTC One M9.

The best part: Lenovo's going to sell the phone for only $150.

The Vibe K5 Plus's design and specs, despite the teases a few days ago, are standard for a mid-range device. The device's 8.2mm thick body has an "aluminum-finish" look, which means that, from afar, it may fool some eyes into thinking it's a metal phone.

You get a 5-inch full HD screen with 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 octa-core processor and a replaceable 2,750 mAh battery. The Vibe K5 Plus comes with 16GB of internal storage, but it can be expanded with a microSD card.

The phone will come in two colors (gold and silver) when it's released next month.
