The Lenovo Vibe X2 smart phone with its layered metal design, now has a bigger brother with the new Vibe X2 Pro. Announced at CES 2015, the new Vibe X2 Pro is upsized from 5.0″ to 5.3″ with a similar Full HD (1920×1080) resolution display. Under the hood, the X2 Pro is running on Qualcomm’s 64-bit 1.5GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 615 processor which also supports 4G LTE together with dual nano-SIM card slots.
For those not content with a 5MP front camera on the original Vibe X2, the new Vibe X2 Pro comes with 13MP cameras for both front and back, which pits itself against HTC’s selfie-centric Desire EYE. The rest of the specs are fairly similar with 2GB of RAM and a decent serving of 32GB on-board storage. Out of the box, it still runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with their own Vibe UI 2.0.
To differentiate itself from its smaller MediaTek sibling, the Vibe X2 Pro stands out with contrasting coloured layers. The battery on the Vibe X2 Pro is slightly bigger too at 2,410mAh, which is about 100mAh more than the earlier model. As a result of going bigger, it is slightly heavier at 140 grams but at the same time Lenovo manages to trim its thickness down to 6.95mm. The Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro is priced at US$499 (about RM1,775) and it will be released in April 2015. Hopefully it should be running on Android 5.0 Lollipop by then.
Need to take selfies in low light condition? Not to worry as Lenovo has also introduced Lenovo Vibe Xtension Selfie Flash that’s easily attached onto the Vibe X2 Pro’s headphone jack. Around this ring shaped accessory are 8 LED lights which is enough to provide decent lighting over a metre.
This is probably good enough to take group selfies in the dark. On a single charge, it is rated to last up to 100 selfies and apparently it works with any Android device.
