Lenovo launch MT6589T powered Vibe X with 5″ 1080p display!

Lenovo finally launched the Vibe X S960 earlier today in China. The phone made its initial appearance at the IFA in Berlin earlier this month. However, other major releases including the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Sony Xperia Z1 meant that the Vibe X did not get the footage Lenovo would’ve desired.

The device packs a 5-inch full HD screen, at par with the current tribe of flagships from around the world. Powered by the MT6589T 1.5GHz quad core chipset, you can expect the device to be responsive and brisk at handling most of what you throw at it. The phone will come in 16GB and 32GB variants and will not have a card slot for storage expansion. 2GB of on-board RAM would mean that the phone will be an efficient device for multi-tasking.

    Very nice. Would have preferred $400 straight though. Hope Lenovo make a 6 inch phablet soon.

      It will be nice if they launch 6 inch phablet with gorilla glass.

      The problem is the following: for $472, it should not use mt6589 at all. It should be either qualcomm apq8064 or snapdragon 600/800, or samsung exynos octa, or tegra4, etc.
      While i do agree that exterior, screen, memory and other spec are important as well, the “heart” shouldn’t be the same as a $120 lenovo a820 for this price.

        Agree who is going to buy this when its almost the Same price as a K900, oppo F5, mx3 32gb, xplay and soon note 2, xperia z etc. At 300 USD this could be a winner but no way at 479 even if it is supposedly paired with perceived higher q components.
