Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro at CES, will cost $499


Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro

If you read our Lenovo Vibe review a few days back and were taken by the design but wanted more power then the Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro might be what you are looking for.

The Vibe X2 Pro from Lenovo has the same layered design as the Mediatek powered phone that we reviewed a few days back, but has a boost in power and build quality to get it up to ‘Pro’ specs.

An alloy rear panel gives the Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro are more premium and substantial feel to the regular plastic bodied phone, while the Mediatek MT6595 chipset has been removed to make room for an octacore Snapdragon 615 running at 1.5Ghz with 2GB RAM.

Upfront is a 1920 x 1080 display measuring 5-inch, while the metal rear gets a 13 mega-pixel camera and single LED flash.

Lenovo also had dedicated selfie flash for the Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro that plugs in to the 3.5mm headphone hack of the phone to brighten up self portraits in the darkest of environments.

Pricing is going to be around $499, with plans to launch the phone in numerous locations around the world.

Previous Asus Zenfone 2 is a striking flagship device with up to 4GB RAM from $199!

    Swap MT6950 for Snapdragon 615 – Call it the PRO version. Cool Story, Bro (Lenovo)…

      Yes, that’s what big brands do for living.
      The sad part is that they own Motorola.

      true but it does increase the chance of getting a newer update of android in the future. Not to mention the GPU and GPS will probably better.

      There must be a mistake…

      If the supperior MT6595 starts at 289$: 28.000vs 50.000 points in Antutu…

      The price might be 159$,
