Lenovo is the world’s biggest PC maker but everybody knows that mobile is the hot new trend. That’s why the company is starting to challenge this field, as well. At the IFA tradeshow in Berlin, the Lenovo Vibe X2 and Vibe Z2 have been unveiled, bringing next-generation chips inside a nice ‘package’.
Lenovo Vibe X2
The Lenovo Vibe X2 sports an 8-core MediaTek MT6595 processor that’s 4G LTE capable, and also comes with a Vibe Xtension option which provides a further 75 per cent more battery, but it adds a 5.1mm fourth layer to the phone. It features a 5-inch Full HD display, 32GB storage and a tri-layered design which means multiple colour options are possible.
There’s a 13-megapixel camera on the rear with auto-focus and a 5-megapixel front facing selfie camera using a wide angle lens. It runs Android 4.4 OS (Kit Kat) and will come in White, Gold, Red and Dark Grey. There’s 2GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM. The 2300mAh battery is said to offer a talk time up of to 19 hours on 3G. It comes with a weight of 120g and dual-SIM support, as well.
Lenovo Vibe Z2
The Lenovo Vibe Z2 is more powerful, featuring a quad-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running at 1.2GHz, which means it’sready for Android L. The Z2 also comes with 4G LTE connectivity, a 3,000mAh battery, 32GB storage, dual SIM support and a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 resolution display.
The Vibe Z2 features the same 13-megapixel rear camera, using Sony’s BSI sensor for excellent night shots. There’s 8-megapixel selfie camera with anti-distortion lens for clear, up close shots, slightly better than the one on the Vibe X2. The smartphone will be available in White, Titanium, Gold colors.
The Lenovo Vibe X2 will retail for $400 while the Vibe Z2 will be $430 when they’re released in October.
