Lenovo has had a few Android device announcements during IFA, one of which is the Vibe X. This is a 5-inch smartphone that has a 1080p display and is powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor. The Vibe X will be arriving as the next flagship for Lenovo and it brings a bit of focus on the cameras -- which includes a 5 megapixel on the front and a 13 megapixel on the back.

Lenovo didn't do all that much bragging in terms of the rear-facing camera, however they did mention that the front-facing camera has an 84 degree viewing angle which should help for video calls. The Lenovo Vibe X is sporting a polycarbonate body and overall it feels relatively light and thin when in your hand. As for measurements, the Vibe X clocks in at 6.9mm thin with a weight of 120 grams.

Shifting back to the display, that will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and Lenovo has said it is a "20/20 vision display." We aren't exactly sure what they are referring to with that description, however the display does look good. Perhaps more important for some users, that 5-inch display will also be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

As for that processor, that clocks in as a 1.5GHz MediaTek 6589T. That processor is then paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage space. All said and done, the Lenovo Vibe X looks like it could be a competitor in the smartphone world. The catch with that will come in with the availability though.

For now Lenovo has yet to offer much in terms of release details. They have said the handset will be available beginning in October. The initial release will be limited to China, and otherwise, other markets will begin seeing the Vibe X in December. So far there hasn't been anything offered in terms of pricing.

Finally, aside from the Vibe X smartphone, Lenovo also unveiled the S5000 tablet during IFA.
