Lenovo Vibe X3

The highest end model of the Vibe X3 sports a 5.5-inch full HD display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 procesor and 3GB of RAM. The mid-range X3 has the same display and chipset but has 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage less.

The two higher versions of the Vibe X3 sports a 23-megapixel rear camera powered by Sony’s IMX230 sensor with PDAF and 4K video recording. There’s a 3600mAh battery on tap, along with front-facing stereo speakers, fingerprint scanner and Hi-Fi audio.

The runt of the three phones will sport MediaTek’s octa-core processor along with 2GB of RAM and just 16GB of storage. The so-called youth version only sports a 16-megapixel rear camera and a smaller 3,400mAh battery. All three phones sport Texas Instruments OPA1612 amplifiers, a Cirrus Logic WM8281 codec for noise and echo cancellation as well as Sabre 9018C2M DAC – the same one found in LG’s V10.

Prices in China are RMB 2999 or 22.2K for the top end version, RMB 2499 or 18.5K for the mid-range version and RMB 1899 or 14K for the youth version.

  1. Finally a camera-centric and hi-fi phone from Lenovo! The IMX230 sensor and the ESS DAC are the same hardware found in Meizu Pro 5, although Meizu has implemented more optimizations on it’s camera software and better transistors on the audio side but this has got to impress. Nice work Lenovo! It’s time for me to save some money hehe
