There’s a new Lenovo flagship device coming in town. Officially known as the Lenovo Vibe X, this latest smartphone touts twin camera technology and pixel-heavy 5-inch display while still maintaining its overall sleek package.
The Lenovo Vibe X’s specifications look good on paper. Inside the device are a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek 6589T processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. The display touts Full HD resolution (1080×1920) with about 441ppi pixel density. Battery capacity is 2000mAh, while Android 4.2 Jelly Bean runs out of the box. Available connectivity options are 2G, 3G, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Users looking for 4G LTE are out of luck. As with all devices, the phone’s real performance and capabilities can be only verified upon actual use.
In the camera department, the Lenovo Vibe X employs what the company claims to be two advanced cameras. The front-facing camera is capable of shooting at 5 megapixels, a feat that very few other smartphones can match. It’s able to capture everything in its 84-degree viewing angle, which should also be great for video conferencing. The main camera at the phone’s rear shoots 13-megapixel photos. LED flash, auto focus, pinch-to-zoom, and a software editor are also available.
For a 5-inch smartphone, the Lenovo Vibe X has an overall compact and lightweight look and feel that can be largely credited to the use of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and premium polycarbonate materials. With laser-engraved fabric-feel surface and sides that are lined with chrome accents, the resulting product only weighs 120g—about the same weight as five AA batteries—and measures 6.9mm thin.
Lenovo is still keeping mum on how much the Lenovo Vibe X is going to cost potential buyers. First slated for release in China next month, the handset is headed to 12 more markets in December.
