Lenovo has started rolling out invites for a press event on October 1 where it will introduce its next flagship phone, the Vibe Z2 Pro in India. The Vibe Z2 Pro is the Quad HD display device which the company announced well before IFA 2014. Lenovo might also showcase the Vibe X2, which recently got listed on India site, at the same event.
The phone packs top of the line specs and thus you can expect it to flaunt an exorbitant price tag. There is flagship adored Snapragon 801 on board, clocked at 2.5 GHz to handle some heavy lifting, aided by Adreno 330 GPU to handle Quad HD (2K) exuberance. Chipset also employs 3 GB RAM and non expandable 32 GB internal storage.
Yes, quad HD display makes a discernible difference and we are eager to judge lenovo’s attempt and the 6 inch IPS LCD panel with ample 490 ppi display, but we are still not convinced if it’s worth it at the expense of battery backup.
There is a 16 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, auto focus and dual LED flash, which can be used for recording 4K videos as well. Software is latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat and judging by Lenovo’s track record, you can expect Android L upgrade, but with Lenovo’s Vibe UI skin on top.
Lenovo is using a massive 4000 mAh battery and that gives us hope that battery backup might turn out pretty decent in spite of the taxing hardware. Lenovo has also managed to keep the weight in check with scales tipping at 179 grams. Other features include 4G LTE / 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/b/g/n, Bluetooth with A2DP, GPS, GLONASS and NFC.
Lenovo has combined the best available hardware in a slim 7.7 mm chassis – definitely something spec junkies can look forward to. Let’s wait for the price to be unveiled.
