Lenovo has announced quite a few devices this year, as they do every year, but the majority of those phones were either entry-level, or mid-range offerings. Well, the Lenovo Vibe X3 handset has started popping up a few weeks back, and that phone definitely looked promising. As far as the design goes, it looked different than pretty much anything else Lenovo has released thus far, and rumors were claiming that Motorola has actually designed this smartphone. The Vibe X3 has been certified by TENAA quite recently, and the device was listed on Geekbench a while back as well. Well, the Lenovo Vibe X3 is now official, let’s see what it has to offer.
All the previous leaks were more or less right as far as the design of this device is concerned, the phone really does look completely different from Lenovo’s previous offerings. The device sports a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 2/3GB of RAM and 16/32/64GB of expandable internal storage. This handset is fueled by the Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor, and a 3600/3400mAh battery is available on the inside. The 13 or 21-megapixel snapper will be available on the back of this handset, depending on the version, and a 5 or 8-megapixel shooter will be located up front. The phone is made out of metal, and as you can see in the images down below, it offers a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. The Lenovo Vibe X3 comes with dual front-facing stereo speakers, while it also features Hi-Fi 3.0 with a dedicated ESS Sabre ES9018K2M or Wolfson8281 DAC, separate speaker amplifiers, and three noise-canceling microphones.
Now, considering that Lenovo launched more than one version of this handset, its dimensions vary a little. The variant packing the 3,600mAh battery measures 154 x 76.5 x 9.3mm, while the model with a 3,400mAh battery measures 153 x 75.9 x 8.7mm. The phone will be available for purchase on November 25th, but you can pre-order it now (in China). The 2GB of RAM (16GB of internal storage) variant is priced at the equivalent of $300, while the 3GB of RAM (32GB of native storage) costs $400. Now, there’s a third option here, 3GB of RAM + 64GB of internal storage, and that variant is priced at the equivalent of $470.
