Lenovo has just announced the rumoured Vibe X2 and Vibe Z2 smartphones in Berlin. The devices, which were rumoured for a while, have finally been made official by the company at the IFA 2014 tech show. While the Vibe X2 sports a true octa-core chipset from MediaTek, the Vibe Z2 has a 64-bit SoC from Qualcomm.
The Lenovo Vibe X2 has a 5 inch full-HD display and is powered by the 2 GHz Mediatek MT6595 octa-core chipset along with 2 GB of RAM. It has 32 GB of internal storage and sports a 13 MP rear camera along with a 5 MP front snapper. The device runs on a 2,300 mAh battery and is 7.2 mm thick.
The Vibe Z2 on the other hand is a much larger smartphone, which sports a 5.5 inch 720p display. The device has a 64-bit chipset from Qualcomm, but not the one that HTC put on its new Desire 820. The Vibe Z2 has a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 SoC and has 2 GB of RAM. It also sports a 13 MP camera like the Vibe X2 and an 8 MP front facing camera. Dual-SIM support is also included.
The devices will be made available in China from October this year. While the Vibe X2 is priced around $399 (Rs. 24,000 approx.), the Vibe Z2 costs $429 (Rs. 26,000 approx.). They will come to the Middle East, Eastern European and Asia Pacific markets shortly after China.
