Lenovo today unveiled its new Vibe X Android 4.2.2 smartphone in India. The device marks the launch of the company’s new Vibe series of handsets. Weighing 121 grams, the Vibe X sports a 5-inch full HD screen with Gorilla Glass 3 on its edges. Under the hood, there is a 1.5 GHz quad-core MT6592 chipset and 2 GB of RAM. It comes with 16 GB of on-board storage, and is powered by 2,000 mAh non-removable battery.
On the back, there is a 13 MP (AF) camera (with LED flash); while the front side has a 5 MP camera. Connectivity-wise, the phone is equipped with 3G, Bluetooth 3.0, microUSB 2.0, WiFi b/g/n WiFi Hotpsot and A-GPS.
The Vibe X comes in only silver colour, and is priced at Rs 25,999. It goes on sale on December 21, 2013, and can also be pre-ordered here, where you will also get a free flip cover along with the phone.
“Our ultimate goal is to use innovation to differentiate Lenovo and become a leading PC + brand. We are confident that the Vibe X will be a popular choice in the Indian market where consumers crave for intelligent performance in a slim and light package. With this launch, we strengthen our focus on the smart connected devices segment,” Amar Babu of Lenovo explained.
Lenovo has been quite aggressive in the Indian market for quite a while now. It has been doing great in the PC market, and is now looking to get a larger share of consumer phone market with this offering, and six other Android smartphones it had launched a few months back. It will be interesting to see how they differentiate their products, and if we get to see OS upgrades from them or not.
