Rumors about Lenovo’s latest round of smartphone releases can be traced as far back as February of this year. Back then the rumor was that Lenovo would launch the Vibe P1, Vibe S1, and the Vibe X3 at MWC 2015. That didn’t happen, however Lenovo did announce the Vibe P1 and the Vibe S1 at IFA 2015 along with the PHAB and PHAB Plus, as well as the YOGA Tablet 3 and YOGA Tablet 3 Pro.

So what about the Vibe X3? According to official documents posted on China’s TENAA website, the Vibe X3 has been sent to the telecommunications equipment certification center in China.

The 5.5 inch Lenovo Vibe X3 sports a full HD display, 3GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, and runs Android Lollipop 5.1.1. The rear facing camera is reported to be a huge 21MP, while the front facing camera is said to use a 8MP sensor.

As can be seen from the TENAA photos, it looks like the device has a fingerprint reader and dual flash. Also if you look carefully, you can see there are two front facing speakers.

The Vibe X3 has yet to be officially announced by Lenovo, but since it has now been certified by TENAA then we can expect it to appear soon. The model described supports 2G, 3G, and 4G, however looking at the supported frequencies it looks like this phone is only designed for the Asian markets, however that doesn’t mean that Lenovo won’t release an “international” version.
