Lenovo Vibe Z gets official in China with 5.5″ Full HD touchscreen, Snapdragon 800 CPU
The Lenovo Vibe Z is basically a phablet that’s very similar in nature to the K900, with one essential difference – the Intel CPU has been swapped for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, everyone’s favorite high-end chipset at the moment.
The Vibe Z also sports a 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD IPS touchscreen, a 13 MP f/1.8 rear camera with dual-LED flash, a 5 MP wide-angle front camera, 2 GB of RAM, dual-SIM support, and all the usual connectivity options.
An LTE version may be in the works for international markets, but for now China will get a 3G-only model. When exactly the Vibe Z will be in stores remains a mystery, as is its pricing unfortunately.
Lenovo is one of the big guys in the Chinese smartphone market, and we sure hope it will at some point decide to become a truly global player and launch its devices outside of a few emerging markets too. Whether or not the Vibe Z will spearhead such an effort remains to be seen.
