Is Lenovo mocking Apple with this invitation to its Vibe X2 launch event?

Apple’s invitation shows the date of the event, and reads: “Wish we could say more.” Not long after Apple, Lenovo also revealed an invitation that’s styled similar to the iPhone maker’s one, while reading: “We can’t say anything either.” It looks like Lenovo is trying to mock Apple’s announcement, though it’s doing it in a way that eludes us. In any case, Lenovo’s invitation is for the official launch of the Vibe X2, a new Android smartphone that we saw a couple of times this week.
Lenovo seems to suggest that the Vibe X2 will run Android L (Lollipop?) - but we can’t be sure of this until its event kicks off on September 4 at IFA 2014. According to previous reports, the X2 features a layered metal design, a 5-inch 1080p display, 2 GB of RAM, a 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 13 MP rear camera. As we already told you, the new Lenovo handset resembles some of Sony’s Xperia flagship smartphones.
You can see Lenovo's invitation to the Vibe X2 launch event, as well as the device itself, in the slideshow below.

All this hype for this Sony inspired phone. If it's not water proof then your done Lenovo.

It's funny how companies are jealous of apple and they make few products compared to major companies.

I'm sure some *people* are jealous of Apple's obscene profits. But at the same time, the more Apple acts like a spoiled little child, the more everyone will want to mock Apple. "Wish we could say more... nannananna hahahahhahahah" And now tell me, who wouldn't want to mock this sort of juvenile garbage?

Simply said, the more successfull Apple is, more and more iracional hate is targeted towards them. That's pretty natural, but in case of Apple it grows into outrageous proportions just like their success. And it's strange you see "juvenile garbage" in typical ultra-simple Apple invitation (here is the date and place, wish we could say more) but not in an obvious (childish) mock of Apple invitation.

Apple's iPhone loosing market share by day, and iPad's sales going down seem like a passed succes! Anyhow, you mean Apple had irrational hate towards Microsoft? I mean MAC vs PCs! Ok, that's how they acted!

It'll be a low quality handset with mediocre hardware that's poorly optimized and a watered down software experience of real preexisting products. Chinese products are usually just poor imitations. Imitating isn't the problem though, they just do it in an inadequate fashion.
