Lenovo may not be one of the first companies that come to mind when you think of Android devices, and even less so when you think of high-end Android phones. Lenovo is hoping to change that on August 5th with the official announcement of the K920, or Vibe Z2 Pro, as it will like be named.
The K920 is all but confirmed to ship with a 6-inch display at 2K, that’s 2560 x 1440 resolution, powered by a Snapdragon 801 CPU, 3GB of RAM and a monstrous 4000mAh battery. We are expecting to see the Vibe Z2 Pro come with 32GB of internal storage, and suspect the Snapdragon 801 processor to be clocked at 2.5GHz.
Further confirmation in the new teaser image shows we’ll be treated to a 16MP main camera sensor with Optical Image Stabilization. Rocking your selfies is a 5MP front shooter, and it is all powered with Android 4.4 KitKat under the hood.
Not much has appeared to change for the brushed aluminum look we saw of the device’s back cover. In-fact, we’ve heard next to nothing about the unit since we talked about it around the Mobile Asia Expo in Shanghai back in June. Make sure you check out our overview of the K920 for more info.
We’ll have to wait for August 5th for Lenovo to announce availability and price tags, but we suspect the phone will begin its roll-out in Lenovo’s home country of China and the few Asian markets that Lenovo has expanded into with their Android devices. Certainly, Lenovo has global ambitions, which we expect will be accelerated by their purchase of Motorola in the US, but not soon enough to expect to see the K920 on store shelves in Western countries.
In just two weeks we’ll have all of the specs, prices and availability for the new Lenovo K920, or Vibe Z2 Pro. With specs that compare to current flagships, is this looking like a phone that will contend for your next purchase?
