Less than one month after Lenovo announced its new Vibe Z2 Pro, it seems like there will be another high end model coming from Lenovo soon. Revealed on TENAA certification site in China, the Lenovo Vibe X2 is listed with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, octa-core processor and a 5-inch Full HD IPS display.
Instead of using a Qualcomm processor like Vibe Z2 Pro, the Vibe X2 turns to MediaTek for its MT6595 octa-core processor - four 2.0GHz A17 + four 1.5GHz A7 processor with ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture. Other hardware specs seems comparable with the Vibe Z2 Pro, except for the 3GB RAM and 2K display. The Vibe X2 comes with 2GB RAM, 13 megapxiel camera, 5 megapixel front facing camera, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth. There is also another variant with same specs but powered by a different dual-core 2.2GHz processor.
Unfortunately, you will have to rely on the built-in 32GB internal storage as memory card slot is not supported according to the filing info. With the SIM card slot placed at the side, its 2250 mAh battery is probably not removable too.
The Vibe X2 is considered light and slim with 7.27 mm thickness and 120 grams body. Its phone body is built in four layers, with each layer done in different color. The screen layer is actually smaller than other three layers, possibly designed to protect the display when the phone is hit hard from the side.
At the moment, there are no availability details yet. With Samsung, LG, Huawei and Sony preparing to announce new smartphones in IFA 2014 next week, the Vibe X2 could be one of the new devices Lenovo is working on. Follow our IFA 2014 coverage for latest info!
