Lenovo Vibe Z launches in India this month
It looks like India is one of the first countries (besides China) to get Lenovo’s new Vibe Z Android smartphone. The handset was officially announced in India today, and it will be available there later this month for about $579, unlocked.

Lenovo introduced the Vibe Z to a global audience at CES back in January, saying that it would launch it in various Asian markets come February. Well, the smartphone is now ready to hit shelves.

While it’s not as thin as the Vibe X (another relatively new Lenovo Android handset), the Vibe Z still has a very slender body, measuring 149 x 77 x 8 mm. It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and offers plenty of high-end features: a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, LTE connectivity (market dependable), a 5MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and LED flash, quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery.

All in all, the Vibe Z is a pretty solid offering from the company that’s buying Motorola from Google. Assuming that you don't need a stylus, the device can be seen as a cheaper alternative to Samsung's Galaxy Note 3. Too bad that it won’t be available in North America or Europe.

Lenovo makes great hardware for the price, but their designs are so uninspiring.

How is Motorola going to affect, or be affected by, this?

Hard to tell for now. We still don't know the changes Lenovo plans to do with Moto. I hope they let Moto run independently the same way Google did. If not, they should at least keep Moto's current design team as both the Moto X & G were excellent devices.

The way I see it, Lenovo might do a Samsung and flood the market with Moto devices the way they are doing now with their Lenovo phones across the world. Low specd and cheap.

I guess we just have to wait and see. *fingers crossed*

I'm not trying to be funny, or anything, but it kinda resembles a Galaxy device...

Is it possible to buy these phones that are only sold in China on eBay or Amazon?
