New Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro to sport a Quad HD screen, might be an LG G3 rival

New Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro to sport a Quad HD screen, might be an LG G3 rival
Not to be outdone by LG, Samsung and HTC, Lenovo is seemingly preparing the release of its own Android smartphone with a Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) display. According to a report from China, the upcoming handset is called Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro, and it’s already been pictured in the wild.

Reportedly, the Quad HD screen of the Vibe Z2 Pro measures 6 inches. Other features should include a 7.7mm-thin metal body, a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 16MP rear camera with OIS, NFC, and a 4,000 mAh battery. It certainly looks like this could give LG’s G3 a run for its money - at least in China, where Lenovo concentrates its smartphone business.

It’s not clear when the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro is supposed to be announced, but we hope to find out more about this soon.

While Lenovo smartphones are a rare sight in North America and Europe, the company managed to become one of the world’s largest handset vendors just by selling devices in Asia (mainly in China). With the acquisition of Motorola Mobility, the company will be able to go global - but this doesn’t mean it’s going to overlook its own-branded handsets (as this report about the Vibe Z2 Pro is proving).

I wish Lenovo would start selling their phones in the US. This new phone with Cyanogen would be a great alternative to the OnePlus One (which looks more and more like a fake phone).

Or Nexus form, good idea either way.

I wanna buy a new phone, my top choices are: LG G Flex Moto G Lenovo K910 Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime They all vary because I have around 800 dollars and I don't know if I should spend it all on one phone. Please tell me which one you think I should buy!

If you like the G Flex, I think that you should wait for the G Flex 2, because I was on a dilemma between that and the Note 3, but I thought the Note 3 was more mature and solid as a smartphone. The S5 Prime or the LG G3 are probably the only ones that are good as a selection. But the choice is up to you. The Moto G (different price tag) and Lenovo (poor user experience) aren't really much of a fight against the aforementioned two.

Wait for the G3 or the S5 Prime(or whatever name they're gonna call it). You should also check the Z2. I love it!

I don't get the hype about metal phones.

6 inch phones are crazy. Used a 1520 for a week. Way big for me and I've got large hands.

Actually doesn't look too bad. If it had good experience, I might take a look at it, but for the time being, all Chinese phones are phones with great specs, metal body and no great user experience.

So true. Great user experience is another thing companies should focus on.

Their current flagship was a little late to the party. They need a "wow" phone this time around

Yey! A dual sim flagship hope this reaches my country. I'm hoping this phone has a removable battery & expandable storage. Which I highly doubt based on their last flagships.

Wow Qualcomm's marketing guys really are on a damn hot streak these days? The lot of players racing to put out 801 inside devices in these coming weeks are just staggering. Only thing I'm stoked about this Vibe Z2 Pro (what's so "Pro" about it? Pen input???) is its batt capacity....Rest such as AOSP/GPL compliance well unfortunately Lenovo is still down there w/ Huawei, ZTE, Asus and Acer even if they have their own VibeROM thing going on, it's pretty locked down the way MIUI is. Hope Lenovo will remedy this quietly and aggressively post Moto acquisition, won't look good long term if otherwise which is a shame considering that they're able to put out decent phones like this one.

How do they fit a 4,000 mAH battery in a 7.7 mm body?
