Lenovo Vibe X2 leaks out: premium metal and first phone with a 'layered' design
Lenovo has picked up the pace recently opening up to new markets and hoping for even bigger growth as it completes the Motorola acquisitions, and one of the first devices to push its plans for the future is the Lenovo Vibe X2. The device is expected to get an official unveiling at IFA 2014 in Berlin in just a few days, but it has already leaked out on Chinese microblog Weibo.

What’s evident is that - unlike some (cough, Samsung) - Lenovo takes design seriously with the Vibe X2 and this latest leak shows it wearing clothes all out of metal, and a unique, ‘layered’ design. You can see this layering of colors on the images right below, and it’s an interesting new idea that we’re curious to hear your thoughts about.

For all else, the Vibe X2 is a fairly typical Android, likely to come with a very alluring price tag. Here are the specs highlights of the phone as per all the leaks so far:

  • Android 4.4.2
  • 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • 2GB of RAM 
  • 16GB of internal storage
  • 13MP main camera 
  • 5MP front-facing shooter
  • 2,250 mAh battery
How do you like what you see? And could the Vibe X2 make a dent in the market?

You say that as if you'd be able to tell difference between a skinned phone running 4.4.2 & another running 4.4.4 without checking in the settings. I highly doubt it. Perhaps you're thinking 4.2.2.

It's missing the security updates of 443/444.

Not so much functionality I'd guess.

I know what it's missing. The point is that you would never know the difference through any kind of daily usage.

Then you know that is a fail by an OEM.

I agree, you'd never see the difference.

You clearly don't understand the point. Never mind.

Are you the same guy, who was spamming all the posts, for one other removed article few weeks back.......... ??? If yes, then write one article yourself, or hire somebody to write it for you, and then read it every hour, every day, this will relieve you a lot........

I hope their phones are better than their ideapad and thinkpad yoga computers. It took me four to get one that was close to working properly, though still not perfectly.

The Galaxy Apha looks nicer to me so that design thing was a pretty retarded jab. Almost HTC and Nokia like. Their fans take these weird jabs at Samsung like their designs are superior but in reality they are not.

Exactly, they either look generic or ergonomically uncomfortable to hold
