Latest launch from Lenovo is the Vibe X2, what the company calls a layered phone.
Lenovo might be new to the smartphone game, but it is clearly nurturing dreams of changing the game. Over the past few months the company has had a slew of devices that have made it a significant player in the market, followed by the acquisition of Motorola which has pushed it up to the third slot among smartphone manufacturers in India. Now, the company is bringing it devices which will stand apart in the crowded Android market while trying to create a niche for itself.
Lenovo will be selling extra battery and JBL speaker layers to be clipped on to the phone. The extra battery will make the phone thicker and heavier, but it also doubled the battery life from the original 2300 mAh.
The Lenovo Vibe X2 is priced at Rs 19,999 and will be available on Flipkart from November 10.
The phone also stands out for its processor, which is chipmaker MediaTek’s big entry into the top-end segment. Our initial experience with the phone suggests that MediaTek 6595m 2.0 GHz 4G LTE True8Core processor can give the big players a run for their money.
