The Lenovo range of smartphones has a new member dubbed Vibe Z which plays successor to the Vibe X that was unveiled at the IFA in September this year. For now the device has only been released in China, but we are awaiting its global roll out.
The Vibe Z comes across as a handset that is basically aimed at users who do not mind shelling out a hefty amount of money for the phone. At this point of time, we have no idea how much it will cost, but its availability details should be revealed very soon. It should be noted that the Chinese manufacturer has decided to make use of a Qualcomm chipset for the gadget, instead of a MediaTek processor which is usually found in budget-friendly devices.
So here’s what the device crams into its stylish form factor. It treats you to Android Jelly Bean 4.2 OS and we are expecting Lenovo to provide software updates for the KitKat platform in the near future. The embedded Snapdragon 800 chip clocks in a speed of 2.2GHz and works in conjunction with an Adreno 330 GPU. 2GB of RAM helps maintaining smooth navigation through various applications.
Moreover, its front side flaunts a 5.5-inch IPS touchscreen which can render full HD visuals in 1080p resolution. A 5MP webcam and a 13MP rear-facing camera grace the device as well and the company has carved dual SIM card slots on the phone’s chassis. Its international variant will support 4G LTE networks too.
Engadget reports that the official Chinese website will start taking pre-orders for the Lenovo Vibe Z very soon.
