Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro

Lenovo is not announcing only one device at the CES 2015 after all, as there are two announcements already done and the Snapdragon 410 chipset device is already out. The most interesting one in them is the Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro, successor or the “Pro” version to the Vibe X2 with the layered design, keeping up with the tradition to launch the pro version of flagship devices. The other smartphone announced at the event, is the Lenovo P90.

The striped or layered design that we had seen in the Vibe X2 (read: Lenovo Vibe X2 review) is what you will see even in the X2 Pro, and it has a slightly larger 5.3-inch 1080p display and it houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (64-bit) processor with 1.5GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and 2GB RAM.

Just like the X2, the internal storage in the device is 32GB. Now, this can be the best HTC Desire Eye competitor, for the reason that the Vibe X2 Pro comes with a 13-megapixel camera not just on the back, but also on the front. If the rear side of the device has the LED flash for low light assistance, the company has just introduced the Lenovo Vibe Xtension selfie flash, which has eight diffused light LEDs and which is able to take 100 shots at a time with its own rechargeable battery.

We won’t be able to vouch much for the battery that is packed into this, just like it was not as expected in the Vibe X2. The X2 Pro packs in a 2410 mAh battery, and the material used to make the smartphone keeps it to a weight of 140gm, for the dimensions of 146.3 X 71.0 X 6.95mm. The smartphone will run Android 4.4 KitKat, and we can safely assume this to be getting the Lollipop update in the future, but with the availability of this dated for April 2015, it will be a long wait.

The Vibe X2 Pro supports 4G LTE Cat.4 and Wi-Fi ac, and the device is to be available in Champagne Gold, Rock Pink and Electric Blue color options. Right now, no details about the availability and pricing is given. Check out for the hands-on from the CES 2015 floor.

    Well similar to last vibe buy with lots of changes like display and the pic with key ? on it I think they want to show that privacy is taken seriously in this smartphone and also the camera which is taken as competitor to HTC eye but whole wise this smartphone is awesome and it’s the second smartphone of Lenovo which is going to be much popular than their last device. It’s layer gives me a little taste of last devices from Lenovo and sailfish OS which is packed in the same layer.

  • A quick glance and the main physical difference seems to be the color options. They are pretty colorful in terms of design and Lenovo still totes the multilayering and a bump to 5.3 from 5 inches is nice too i nears phablet range. Lenovo is serious as the technology they have in their new Vibe Xtension selfie flash with eight diffused light LEDs and rechargeability is a step in the right direction. Also their pair of 13mp cams is very impressive as well and I would lean towards this instead of the Desire Eye! Ive been a huge fan of the multilayering and custom coloring is even sweeter! Want to tweet but twitter is having some problems right now.

    All companies started to increase the display size i think there is so much demand of phablet size smartphones and all are making competitor .not thinking of something new

    • There are many who prefer larger sizes and many who like one handed size. A crazy thing is that phablet sizes have changed over the year. The original Not ws 5.3 inches and that was considered gargantuan. Now it cant be a phablet anymore since we have made phones bigger and have considered phablets to be 5.7-6 inches which is huge. This at 5.3 inches is an upgrade from the X2 and yet it still did think of something new with colorful multilayering and the Vibe Xtension selfie flash!

    If this phone is priced at sub 10k range it could be a great bargain against the upcoming YU product from micromax
