A few months back, we had a close look at Lenovo’s current flagship smartphone, the Vibe Z, and we found it to be an impressive device. Now, the Chinese company is looking to continue the legacy with the rumored Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro which is said to come with a metallic body, instead of plastic, which was used in the Vibe Z. If you remember, the Lenovo K900 came with a beautiful metallic body early last year.
According to Engadget’s Richard Lai, the expected specs of the upcoming smartphone are top notch:
- 6-inch quad HD display
- 16-megapixel OIS camera (with dual LED flash)
- Huge 4,000mAh battery
- 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 chip
- 7.7mm-thick metallic body
- NFC support
From the looks of it, the Vibe Z2 Pro seems to feature a very high screen-to-bezel ratio, but this could become problematic if the touchscreen’s edges prove to be too sensitive. The Vibe Z2 Pro is said to be a dual-SIM device with LTE support, but this could be the model aimed at the local market, with single-SIM variants being launched in other places. Also, looking at the “Pro” suffix, we wonder if Lenovo is coming out with two models – the bigger 6″ Z2 Pro and a smaller 5″+ Z2.
According to the sources who have leaked the images and specs of the Vibe Z2 Pro, these were disclosed at an internal event, so this means that an official announcement could be made quite soon. Lenovo has recently hired a very experienced former Nokia top executive, Colin Giles, who also worked at Huawei. With fresh talent on board to run Lenovo’s global mobile division, the company is set to expand its reach on the ever expanding global mobile market, and not to mention the impending Motorola acquisition.
