This week the folks at Lenovo have introduced the Vibe X smartphone, a next-generation solution that takes what they introduced with last year’s K900 and gives it a full 2013 makeover. This device works with top-tier specifications like a 5-inch “20/20 Vision” IPS LCD display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution – that’s Full HD and a full 441 PPI (pixels per inch). This machine also works with one of the largest front-facing cameras on a smartphone on the market today with a 5-megapixel shooter for selfies and video chat.
The Lenovo Vibe X works with a 13-megapixel camera at its back with auto-focus and a back-illuminated sensor along with a single LED flash. The front-facing camera on this device also works with a wide-angle 84-degree lens, aiming for what Lenovo suggests will be “high-quality” self-portraits. Below this front-facing camera you’ll also find a pane of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 for scratch resistance – with beveled edges, no less.
This smartphone works with a 121 gram body (0.26 pounds) that’s 6.9mm thin running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box. Under the hood you’ve also got a quad-core MediaTek 6589T processor clocked at 1.5GHz per core with 2GB of RAM to back it up. Also included is 16GB of internal storage – with no microSD card slot for expansion and a battery sitting at 2000 mAh.
This device measures in at 144mm tall and 74mm wide and the whole device will be coming your way with what Lenovo describes as a “fabric-like surface” on its back cover. Along the sides you’ll find chrome accents while the front utilizes a more classic sort of design with three capacitive buttons below its 5-inch display.
Lenovo notes specifically that this device will not be for sale in Europe, but it will be available in China in October and “in countries where Lenovo smartphones are sold” beginning in December. That means we’ll not likely be seeing it any time soon inside the borders of the United States of America.
