The Lenovo Vibe Shot is 16MP triple-tone flash camera posing as a full metal smartphone
Lenovo loves turning its mobile artillery into multimedia powerhouses. You may remember its wholesome tablet with QHD resolution display and a built-in Pico projector, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, or the Yoga Tablet 2 and its unique superpower of accepting touch-screen input from a fork. These were announced around CES 2015 last month, and in the meantime, Lenovo is continuing the trend with the new Vibe Shot. This smartphone has the rugged good looks of the company's Vibe Z handsets - polished aluminium and colorful frames - and its secret power is a 16MP camera with a BSI sensor, a triple-tone LED flash, and optical image stabilization. 

In other words, the Vibe Shot is Lenovo's idea of a cameraphone that delivers quality mobile photography without overblown megapixel counts or huge camera assemblies sticking from its back. Calling it a flagship would be a bit of a stretch, though, because the Vibe Shot's innards are... well, they are one level below "2015 top-shelf". Reportedly, we're talking a 5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 615 octa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable internal storage, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. A Snapdragon 810, 4GB RAM, QHD beast the Vibe Shot isn't, but it's still a top of the line device.

Unfortunately, we don't know when Lenovo will bring this polished aluminium bandit to the masses. MWC 2015 is a good suggestion, but we have no evidence the Vibe Shot will be present at the big event.

Frame Looks more like the MI4. Better than the Z3 IMO.

imo the frame looks a lot more like the iPhone 5/5S, and the back looks like a Cybershot in smartphone form

They really have. Ever since the K900, their mid range and flagships have been gorgeous. Too bad they won't come to the US. Might have to pick this one up anyway.

Looks like my Sony TX-66 with 1/2.3 inch sensor size. Let´s see low light samples.

I can never understand Lenovo's insistence on dual portrait side firing speakers' placement. What's the batt size though?

Nice but should have had a speaker each end of the phone

This could be nice. There are so many smartphones that I feel like could do so well overhere, but they keep the market for them overseas.

Looks great but still a Chinaphone plague with heating and useless battery discharging.
