"We are pleased to see our powerful MT6595 in Lenovo’s VIBE X2. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to enabling more LTE choices with VIBE X2 joining our growing list of LTE-enabled devices in our portfolio,” said Jeffrey Ju, Head of Smartphones, MediaTek.
Vibe X2: Multi-Layered Design, Performance And Accessories For Multi-Layered Lifestyles
The Lenovo VIBE X2, the world’s first layered smartphone, turns heads with its signature, gradient three layer design. Consumers can choose from a selection of four bold colors – white, red, gold and dark grey – to suit their individual style.
As the first global handset manufacturer to use the new MediaTEK MT6595 4G LTE True8Core processor, Lenovo has designed the VIBE X2 for impressive performance. This processor delivers a hidden layer of performance with power-saving features that help boost battery life, keeping videos, games and photos running longer. Combined with the processor, the smartphone’s 5-inch FHD resolution display with wide-angle viewing makes using apps, photo and more seamless.
To further personalize and amplify the mobile experience, Lenovo is introducing two new innovative click-on accessories, known as VIBE Xtensions, that work seamlessly with the VIBE X2: VIBE X2 Battery and VIBE X2 speaker.
The Lenovo VIBE X2 packs two advanced cameras equipped with multiple shooting modes and beautification features. This technology gives users the ability to capture crisp, vivid photos and video whenever the moment strikes. Users can take effortless selfies with the VIBE X2’s 5MP wide-angle front camera, featuring auto-shutter gesture controls that activate the lens with the blink of an eye or a smile. The13MP auto-focus, rear-facing camera comes with a back-illuminated sensor and LED flash to produce sharp, brilliant shots. And with 32GB of internal storage, users will have ample room to store their digital content.
To further personalize and amplify the mobile experience, Lenovo is introducing two new innovative click-on accessories, known as VIBE Xtensions, that work seamlessly with the VIBE X2: VIBE X2 Battery and VIBE X2 speaker. The VIBE Xtension cases add a fourth layer to the VIBE X2’s multi-layer design, immediately extending battery life and cranking up high-fi sound. The ultra-thin (5.1mm) X2 Battery does double duty by protecting the phone while also extending its battery life by nearly up to 75 percent, so it can last straight from day to night without having to recharge. The X2 Speaker serves to amplify the phone’s sound when listening to music and watching movies, and comes with a convenient stand for hands-free use and built-in mic for group conference calls.
Vibe Z2, Lenovo’s First 64-Bit Smartphone
For those who want a high performance smartphone in a sleek brushed metal unibody design, Lenovo created the Vibe Z2. Remarkably slim at just 7.8 mm thin, this smartphone takes vibrancy to the next level with its extra-bright 600nit rating on a 5.5-inch (1280x720) HD display, making it one of the brightest screens on the market today, to produce ultra-sharp photos and video playback, even in bright sunlight.
The VIBE Z2 is Lenovo’s first 64-bit powered smartphone, which means it will be able to take advantage of Google’s future versions of Android that supports high-performance 64-bit computing. The Vibe Z2 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 64-bit Quad Core 1.2GHz processor and is backed by a 3000mAh battery for all day battery life. Saving large amounts of data is simple with 32 GB of internal storage, and 4G LTE data speeds offer faster downloads and streaming while on the go. The VIBE Z2 also provides dual SIM support, which allows the phone to support two carrier plans, great for combining work and play in one device or for frequent travelers.
The VIBE Z2 takes camera features even further for amazing-looking shots. Its 13MP rear camera offers optical image stabilization and a next-generation Sony Exmor BSI sensor for vibrant night photography. Also, it comes with an 8MP front camera designed with an anti-distortion lens, balancing images for sharp and flawless self-portraits. And finally, the VIBE Z2 comes equipped with beautification features, button-free shutter control and new Instant On camera feature that allows users to capture a photo very quickly from the standby screen.
Pricing And Availability
Lenovo’s VIBE X2 and VIBE Z2 smartphones will be available first in China starting in October, and subsequently in Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe and the Middle East in countries where Lenovo smartphones are currently sold. The VIBE X2 will retail at $399 USD and the VIBE Z2 will retail at $429 USD.
