Lenovo Vibe X2’s WCDMA version finally makes it to a listing

It’s been a while since arguably Lenovo’s best looking phone, the Vibe X2 went on sale in markets like China and India. However, the Chinese market only saw the device in TD-SDCMA avatar. Until now!

As you might already know, TD-SDCMA is what China Mobile uses for its 3G networks across China. Devices that work only on TD-SDCMA do not work with other carriers in China. What’s more important is that a lot of international markets have adopted the WCDMA protocol, so this means that China Mobile devices aren’t any use to buyers in those markets. However, now that the Vibe X2 has been listed in WCDMA, buyers in other countries can expect re-sellers to offer the phone soon.

Gizchina News of the week

The Lenovo Vibe X2 was first showcased at the IFA in Berlin, where Lenovo claimed it to be the ‘first smartphone with a layered design’. Fortunately for Lenovo, the design caught the fancy of many a buyer, and turned out to be an instant hit. Besides the eye-catching design, the Lenovo Vibe X2 boasts the MediaTek MT6595m processor, 2GB of RAM and a 5-inch 1080p display.

Interesting accessories, including a power bank and a JBL speaker, are also sold by Lenovo that go well with the device. Does GizChina have any readers who had been waiting for this one?

      Interesting, not sure about the Chinese version but the India version is listed as ‘2100/900 Mhz or 2100/900/850 Mhz’: http://shopap.lenovo.com/in/en/smartphones/vibe/vibe-x2/#tab-tech_specs

            Thx for ur help.

            I need WDCMA 850/2100 …not 900/2100

            and i just notice that this model dt include a microsd extension …

            I really dt know which phablet 4G i can buy…with a 3G 850…

            Bcz of this i think abt the Nubia x6 or the Huawei Ascend p7 ….have almost all the specs.( but not really a phablet) or the Nubia z7 max , but i am worried abt its totally plastic body .
            The Huawei is great too but really too expensive.

            If someone know a better choice, just tell me plz…

      All the specs I’ve seen show it as a pentaband phone. Check the Lenovo site and forums.

    I’m interested in it because of the awesome clip on accessories but it’s the 5.5 inch Vibe Z2 I really want. Any news when that’s coming out Andy or Yash? Anyone?
