Lenovo’s latest financial results show that the company is doing great. Both their PC and smartphone business are thriving, the company is now world’s fourth largest smartphone vendor, which is quite an accomplishment. Lenovo’s PC business didn’t surprise me at all, they’ve been doing great on that field for a long time, but I didn’t expect such great results in the mobile space as well. Lenovo has been releasing smartphone regularly over the last few months, one of which is Lenovo Vibe X2. This handset was launched at the beginning of September and has launched in China at the end of that month, while it was listed on Lenovo’s official Indian website on that very same day. The handset launched in India on November 6th and is now available for purchase via Flipkart for INR 19,999 ($325).
Lenovo Vibe X2 is featuring a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) IPS display along with 2GB of RAM for your multitasking needs and 32GB of internal storage. Lenovo Vibe X2 is powered by MediaTek’s MT6595M octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz, this is a true octa-core chip which can fire up all eight cores at ones if needed. On the back of this device you’ll find a 13-megapixel camera which is flanked by an LED flash while there’s a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera located on the front side of the device. This handset ships with Android 4.4 KitKat which comes with Lenovo’s very own Vibe UI 2.0 on top of it. 2300mAh battery is also a part of this package as well as the usual array of sensors. Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS are also included here. Lenovo Vibe X2 measures 140.2 x 68.6 x 7.27mm and it weighs 120 grams. This is a 4G device and it also sports dual SIM capability (nano + micro SIM) and it comes in Dark Grey, White, Red and Gold colors.
