Lenovo Vibe X3 press

The Lenovo Vibe X3 will go on sale in India on January 28 for Rs. 19,999, following a successful launch in China in November. The device will be available exclusively through Amazon India starting at 2 PM local time, making it the second Lenovo device to be launched in the sub-continent after the Lenovo K4 Note earlier this month.

The Lenovo Vibe X3 specs include a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display, hexa-core Snapdragon 808 (with two A57 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz and four A53’s at 1.4 GHz), 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and microSD expansion up to 128 GB via a multi-purpose dual-SIM slot.


The Vibe X3 also packs a fingerprint scanner, 21 MP primary camera with a Sony IMX230 sensor, PDAF, LED flash, f/2.0 aperture and support for 4K video. Up front there’s a beefy 8 MP selfie camera and the whole thing is powered by a solid 3,500 mAh battery, making the Vibe X3 a force to be reckoned with.

Running Lenovo’s Vibe UI on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop, the Vibe X3 is jam packed with a lot of the same entertainment features as the K4 Note, including support for VR TheaterMax via the optional AntVR headset, Lenovo Sound via the Dolby Atmos-Equipped dual front-facing speakers, some funky Skull Candy headphones and HD Audio quality through both the speakers and headphones. In case you can’t tell, audio fidelity is one of the main selling points of the Vibe X3.

What do you think of the Vibe X3 for the price? Have you had a Lenovo phone before?

    the camera is still a disappointment ,if you go through reviews of this phone on youtube

    imo price should have beeen around 17,000,which would have been a steal

    Recently bought the k4 note, which is amazing for the price tag, but don’t expect for a super high performance. Definitely the X3 has intriguing specs. Price could have been a bit lower though.

    Tremendous specs:price ratio but Vibe UI murders it.

    • Hysen Parampil

      Well said.. UI is such an important part of the cell phone experience which almost all manufacturers are neglecting

    • Sri

      I agree, Vibe UI is not among the good custom UIs out there.

  • cns2007

    A lot of Moto-design influence with this phone. X2 looked like a Sony.

    I used Lenovo A6000 in India in recent past. The phone was plagued with many software bugs and underperforming hardware. The OTA upgrade to Lollipop took a lot of time to stabilize. My Lenovo experience was not good. I feel Lenovo gives up on customers once a phone is sold as their focus immediately shifts to future phone launches very quickly.

      …just like Samsung :P

  • sundar

    Don’t go for Lenovo, I am using Lenovo Smart phone past 3 years,,,
    very low/weak signal. always no network signal even in 3G COVERAGE. SOME area can reach 1 or 2 bar signal, but other phone with same network and same place got 3G and full signal.

    They will release new models with higher configuration with out network this is not a phone also most like a Ipad…
