Lenovo updates Vibe product line

09 SEP 2014

Lenovo showcased two additions to its Vibe smartphone line, one of which is powered by an octacore processor, and the other of which is the vendor’s first 64-bit phone.

The company described Vibe X2 as “the world’s first layered smartphone”, with a “signature gradient three layer design”.

Aside from its design, the company also said it is the first to use MediaTek’s MT6595 4G LTE True8Core processor, which it said “delivers a hidden layer of performance with power-saving features that help boost battery life, keeping videos, games and photos running longer”.

It also has a 5-inch full HD display, 13MP rear facing camera, 5MP front-facing wide-angle front camera, and 32GB of on-board storage.

Vibe X2 also supports battery and speaker cases, which “add a fourth layer to the Vibe X2’s multi-layer design”.

Meanwhile, Vibe Z2 is the company’s first 64-bit smartphone, “which means it will be able to take advantage of Google’s future versions of Android that support high-performance 64-bit computing”.

Lenovo has also joined the ‘selfie’ set, noting that the device has an 8MP front camera with “anti-distortion lens” and “beautification features, button-free shutter control and a new instant-on camera feature”.

Other features include a 13MP rear camera, 5.5-inch 720 pixel HD screen, and 32GB of internal storage. Dual-SIM support is also on the spec sheet.

Vibe X2 and Vibe Z2 will be available first in China from October, and “subsequently in Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe and the Middle East in countries where Lenovo smartphones are currently sold”.

Pricing is $399 and $429 respectively.
