Lenovo to launch a larger yet thinner variant of its Vibe X2 smartphone
The new Vibe X2 was approved by China’s Telecommunications Equipment Center, which means it might be launched in China soon. While the original handset sports a 5-inch 1080p display, the new X2 comes with a larger, 5.3-inch screen - though the 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution hasn’t changed. The new device is also a bit taller than the original, and slightly thinner (6.8 mm versus 7.3 mm). Another change concerns the processor: it’s still an octa-core MediaTek one, but it’s clocked at 1.5 GHz, not at 2 GHz.
Like the Vibe X2 that’s already available to buy, the new one runs Android KitKat. Other features include LTE connectivity, an 8 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, and microSD card slot.
It’s not clear where and when the new (and larger) Vibe X2 will be released, but Lenovo will probably share some official details on this soon.
