While we were busy in Beijing yesterday Lenovo was wooing the crowds at IFA with their new high-end Mediatek handset the Lenovo Vibe X.
Lenovo have jumped in to the Android phone market with both feet, and although their initial start was a bit wonky, their later devices have been true market leaders. The Lenovo Vibe X is a high-end 1080 phone based on the low-cost quad-core MT6589T Mediatek processor,
Gizchina News of the week
A 5-inch 1080 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection takes up the whole front of the sleek 6.9mm alloy handset with a pixel density of 441PPI, the same as the Xiaomi Mi3.
The Vibe X also get’s a 5 mega-pixel front camera, 13 mega-pixel rear, single LED flash, 16GB memory but no SD card expansion. The phone will complete directly with devices such as the Vivo X3, Oppo R819 and others, and should be priced at around the $300.[ Image Source Mashable ]
We want a $200 phone
unfortunately, it´s being announced that it will be sold only in China. 🙁
Apparently nowadays “high-end” is synonymous with no external storage, some things that has been norm for decades on feature phones (aka dumb phones). Smartphone my ass.
I think everyone is following the Google strategy of no SD card. It’s definitely not for me. I would prefer an 8 gb phone with SD slot.

kkkk no thx i have the original one. > TCL s950 lamers.
Lenovo plz bitch.
yep, a clone of idol x, an ugly and wide one.
Clone? They’re the exact same phone (TCL is Alcatel OEM) and at 67.5mm wide, it’s probably the most compact 5″ phone out there.
Ah sorry, you mean this Lenovo is the clone of Idol X, I agree and it’s even less capable.
You missed mentioning the RAM. It’s got 2GB.
no SD card expansion and only 16GB internal storage. NO..
Here it is in action:
I want this right now.
