Lenovo has silently launched a new smartphone in their offline market. Off late, the Chinese OEM has been focusing quite heavily on their offline sales, and has, therefore, come out with a number of offline exclusive smartphones. And the Lenovo Vibe B, which has currently gone on sale as per Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom, is one of them.
The Lenovo Vibe B is an ultra-budget smartphone that aims to lock its horns with the likes of Micromax, Swipe and Lava. The latest smartphone from Lenovo’s stable comes with a 4.5-inch FWVGA (854 x 480px) IPS display upfront. Under the hood, it comes with a 1 GHz quad-core Mediatek 6735 processor with Mali T720 GPU. There’s also 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. That aside, Lenovo has also included a memory expansion slot in its Vibe B smartphone.
The cameras found on the Lenovo Vibe B is quite basic. It has a 5MP rear shooter that comes equipped with a LED flash. Apart from that, there’s a 2MP front shooter that’s expected to take care of all your selfie needs. Powering the Lenovo Vibe C is a 2,000mAH battery which will possibly last it through a day of heavy to moderate use. It’s also worth noting that this budget smartphone from Lenovo comes with support for 4G VoLTE.
As you can pretty well assume by now, that the specs on of the Lenovo Vibe B are quite basic. In fact, it has nothing to write home about. With that said, the internals of the device isn’t that disappointing considering the fact this smartphone would be only available via offline channels. Unlike online, where consumers are spoilt with a ton of choices like the Xiaomi Redmi 3S, Moto E3 Power, Lenovo A6000; offline buyers have very little to choose from. Thus, at the price of Rs 5,799, the Lenovo Vibe B isn’t really a disappointing device, but it isn’t interesting either.
The Lenovo Vibe B comes in two colors namely Matte Black and Matte White. It is currently available for sale in Mumbai and is expected to available in a number of other cities across India by the end of this week.
