Three versions of the same phone
Lenovo has officially taken off the wraps of their newest smartphone in China, the Vibe X3. The Vibe X3 isn’t a single device – it’s three similarly designed smartphones with varying specs, which we’ll talk about below.
Lenovo Vibe X3 specs

- 3GB/2GB of RAM
- 5.5-inch full HD display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 1920 x 1080

- 8-megapixel front camera/5-megapixel front camera
- 3G, LTE
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, Fingerprint scanner
- 3600mAh battery/3400mAh battery
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.
