Lenovo announces the Vibe X, a 5-inch 1080p handset with solid specs all around

Lenovo has now announced their latest handset, the Vibe X. While the K900 was known for its Atom processor, the Vibe X has a quad-core MediaTek 6589T CPU, alongside some impressive features such as a 13MP back cam!
September 5, 2013


The biggest news to come out of Berlin IFA 2013 has been, without a doubt, the announcement of new Samsung and Sony’s devices. Does that mean there is nothing left to see here? Of course not! There are plenty of other manufacturers strutting their stuff this week. With that in mind, Lenovo has now shown off their latest handset, the Vibe X.

While the Lenovo K900 was known for its speedy Intel Atom processor, the Vibe X combines higher-end specs with a  more affordable (local) processor, a quad-core 1.5GHz MediaTek 6589T. Outside of the CPU, the Vibe X packs a 5-inch IPS display with Full HD and a rating of 441 PPI. There’s also 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, a 2,000 mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. No microSD support here, though.

In the camera department, the Lenovo Vibe X has a 5MP front cam with an 84-degree lens, which should make taking those selfies all the better. It should also be perfect for video calling services such as Skype. On the back, we get a 13MP camera with auto-focus and LED flash.

Unfortunately, the Lenovo Vibe X will continue the company’s focus on China and its surrounding markets. Lenovo specifically mentioned the phone will not be for sale in Europe, which also means you shouldn’t expect it to arrive in North America either. Too bad, as this looks like a pretty solid device.
