Lenovo India has confirmed plans to launch the Vibe X3 smartphone on January 27. With the launch, the company will have launched two new products, the first being the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note, in the month of January.
To recall, Lenovo in November last year unveiled the Vibe X3 smartphone for China, priced at CNY 2,499 (approximately Rs. 26,000) for the 32GB storage variant. The company had also launched a ‘Youth’ variant of the Vibe X3 smartphone at CNY 1,889 (approximately Rs. 19,500). As of now, there is no word whether Lenovo India will only reveal the Vibe X3 model or the ‘Youth variant’ will also make it to the country.
Lenovo and Motorola recently revealed upcoming re-branding of the Motorola lineup, which will be launched under the Moto by Lenovo moniker in the future. The firms added that the Vibe brand will now cater to the budget segment while the Moto brand will compete in the high-end segment. The move reflects the company’s shift in smartphone strategy. It will be interesting to see how Lenovo prices its upcoming Lenovo Vibe X3 in India.
The Lenovo Vibe X3 features a 5.5-inch (1080×1920 pixels) display and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection from scratches. It sports a fingerprint sensor at the rear panel just below the primary camera. It comes with hybrid dual-SIM slots, which means users can either use two SIM cards or a single SIM card alongside a microSD card. It also supports 4G LTE connectivity.
The Vibe X3 packs a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. It comes in 32GB and 64GB built-in storage variants. It supports expandable storage up to 128GB (via microSD)
The Vibe X3 sports a 21-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX230 sensor, LED flash, PDAF (phase detection autofocus), and 4K video recording support. There is an 8-megapixel front facing camera on board as well. The Vibe X3 packs a large 3600mAh battery.
