Lenovo Vibe Z smartphone launched for Rs 35,999, brings the fight to Google Nexus 5


Lenovo has followed up the success of the Vibe X smartphone with a new launch - the Vibe Z. The Chinese company has added the Vibe Z to its premium series of smartphones at a price of Rs 35,999. This is now the second cheapest Snapdragon 800-powered smartphone in the market and its closest competition is the Google Nexus 5.

 

The phone is a sleek one featuring a thickness of a mere 7.9mm as well as a weight of 147 grams. The Vibe Z packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz, which should help you multitask with a number of apps. It also features a 2GB RAM and comes with 16GB of built-in storage space. Going by the images of the phone on Lenovo’s website, it looks highly unlikely that the Vibe Z will have an expandable memory option.

 

Vibe Z features a 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that features a pixel density of 400ppi and comes protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. As far as the snappers on the phone go, the Vibe Z features a 5-megapixel front camera and an 84-degree wide angle lens that could be really good for selfies or video chatting. There’s also a 13-megapixel primary camera with a BSI sensor, capable of shooting 1080p HD videos.

 

The phone also has provision for 4G LTE connectivity. Powering all these features is an integrated 3000mAh battery. The phone also features USB OTG that allows users to access data from pen drives and even charge from other smartphones. Lenovo Vibe Z will run Android version 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. Lenovo Vibe Z will be available for sale this month through Lenovo’s exclusive stores as well as multi-brand outlets.
