Lenovo has introduced yet another budget 4G smartphone for the Russian market. The Vibe C2 comes months after Lenovo introduced the Vibe C. The Lenovo Vibe C2 comes with a 5-inch HD display and is powered by a 1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735P SoC coupled with a 1GB of RAM. At 8.5mm thickness the phone is definitely on the chunkier side.
On the storage front, the device offers 8GB/16GB of internal memory which is further expandable up to 32GB. The camera setup consists of an 8-Megapixel primary Sony 219 sensor and a secondary camera is a 5-Megapixel unit. Lenovo Vibe C2 is backed up by a 2,750mAh battery and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Lenovo Vibe C2 comes with the usual host of connectivity features including 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0LE, and GPS. Furthermore, the Vibe C2 would be offered in Black and White colour while the pricing details are yet to be revealed. If rumours are to be believed, then the Moto E3 might come with a similar set of specifications.
The Russian market is currently being dominated by the Chinese brands and in fact, Lenovo is one of the most popular Chinese smartphone brands and commands a market share of 10%. Lenovo is trailed by Asus and ZTE at the market share of 4% and 5% respectively. A staggering 1.2 million Chinese brand mobile phones were sold in the first two months of 2016 thus marking a 50% YoY. It is very likely that some of the countries might see a Lenovo branded variant of the Moto E3 this year.
