Lenovo is one of the biggest Chinese computer, smartphone and tablet manufacturers in the world. We’re talking about the company which acquired Motorola Mobility from Google and a global leader when ti comes to PC sales. Lenovo has introduced a rather interesting smartphone at this year’s IFA in Berlin, Lenovo Vibe X2. This device is available for sale in China starting today. The device is available for 2,499 Yuan from Lenovo as well as a number of resellers such as Suning and Gome.

Lenovo Vibe X2 is featuring a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) IPS LCD display along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of non-expandable internal storage. The device is powered by MediatTek MT6595m True 8 Core octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz with a PowerVR G600 GPU to take care of graphics processing. The device sports a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera flanked by a LED flash while it also has a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for your selfie and video call needs. Vibe X2 comes with a 2300mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat OS pre-installed with Lenovo’s UI on top of it. The device measures 140.2 x 68.6 x 7.3mm and weighs 120 grams. Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac are also part of the package. The device comes in red, white, gold and dark grey while it will be available in a special bamboo version as well. This is a 4G LTE device as well.

This is a well specced good looking device, it actually reminds me of Sony Xperia Z line a lot, but that’s a good thing in my humble opinion. The device is quite manageable in size and really thin, coming at 7.3mm, so if you’re into sleek thin phones and you live in China, this might be device for you. There are lots of other options in China of course, from Meizu and Xiaomi to Huawei and Elephone, there are tons of manufacturers is China which offer quality devices which are cheaper than Lenovo’s Vibe X2. It of course all depends on what do you want / need out of your device, in any case, this is certainly a great option.
