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?
