Lenovo Prices Vibe Shot In China, Retails Below 13K

 Lenovo Vibe Shot 01

Another bang for the buck device coming from Lenovo?

Lenovo has a potential winner with their Vibe Shot, their own interpretation of the high spec shooter that Nokia popularized with their 1020. We’ve spent some hands-on time with the Vibe Shot both in Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain and here in the Philippines, and we’re very excited to see exactly what the Vibe Shot can deliver when it’s officially launched here.

Lenovo Vibe Shot specs

  • 1.7Ghz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 5-inch full HD display, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 32GB of storage, expandable via microSD up to 128GB
  • 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS, IR laser AF, triple LED flash
  • 8-megapixel front facing camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • 2900mAh battery


The only remaining question is price – while Lenovo gave a rough price estimate back in Barcelona of $349, or around 15K. Well, the device has finally launched in Lenovo’s home country of China, and guess what – it carries a retail price of RMB 1799, or around Php 12,900.

IF Lenovo can retain that price point or make sure that the phone launches at under 15K, the Vibe Shot has a, well, shot of being able to stand toe to toe against ASUS’ Zenfone 2. The Lenovo Vibe Shot has a very compelling feature set and a better imaging package compared to the Zenfone 2, and might just be the hit device for Lenovo this year. Lenovo’s head honcho for mobile Dino Romano has confirmed that the Vibe Shot may arrive as soon as June here in the PH.

  1. Would you kindly give a review/comparison of Intel SOC used in ZF2 vs the newer Snapdragons? While Intel SOCS have good benchmarks, it is my impression that it suffers compatability issues? pero Im not sure. that’s why im asking

    1. intel soc suffers from compatibility issues kasi x86 architecture ang ginamit nila na hindi pa optimized for android os unlike the snapdragons whihc uses either 3s bit or 64 bit architecture na pwedeng pwede kay android

      1. 32-bit and 64-bit are not architectures. They are instruction sets for the x86 architecture. ARM (used by Snapdragon and Mediatek) is the architecture which you may be referring to.

        “x86 started out as a 16-bit instruction set for 16-bit processors (the 8086 and 8088 processors), then was extended to a 32-bit instruction set for 32-bit processors (80386 and 80486), and now has been extended to a 64-bit instruction set for 64-bit processors. It used to be written as 80×86 to reflect the changing value in the middle of the chip model numbers, but somewhere along the line the 80 in the front was dropped, leaving just x86.”

    1. knowing lenovo’s pricing,they might sell this for 17k here..but i’d still pay that much for this, ang ganda eh.

  2. wow ganda ng specs, 18mp rear 8mp front, 441ppi, 3gb ram tapos ang sexy ng design

  3. Wow anlaki ng ram at internal memory + micro sd para sa 13k! Mapapatawad na ang panget na UI dahil marami namang android launchers. Kung sony sensor ang camera nila e mura na to. Iyak na naman ang local brands. Paano pa pag dumating na din ang Acer Liquid X2 na may 4000mah battery?
