Mystery Flagship Lenovo leaked with metal chassis, possible optical zoom


lenovo k3 leaked

Weibo tipsters have leaked photos of a mystery Lenovo smartphone which may (or may not) be the upcoming Lenovo K3. Keep reading for more details.

Lenovo have proven over the years that they are capable of making some seriously good Android phones, they have also proven that they don’t mind experimenting and trying out new ideas (Intel processor, snazzy alloy body designs etc). What they are lacking though is a true flagship that captures the heart and minds of tech fans around the world, perhaps until now.

Leaked photos show a new mystery Lenovo flagship phone, possibly the Lenovo K3, featuring a metal chassis, glass front and rear and an interesting “credit card” design to the rear. We can also see a physical shutter button in the photos along with dual speakers in the base and sim card tray.

The mystery Lenovo looks like it will be a camera centric device and boasts 3 LED flash bulbs. I am also wondering if the phone features an optical zoom too, perhaps the switch in the top unlocks the motorised lens?

What do you guys think of the latest Lenovo? Do you think they could finally hit the mark this time around?

      Am not Andy, but let me air my view as one who has used the Z7 Max for 1/3 of a year. It is a really good phone. Contrary to statements made about the build quality (looking at you Andy) the device is pretty sturdy and durable (it has taken some really bad drops and crashes even falling faced down severally and its still kicking good). I have no complain except this two.
      1. No OIS means u need to have steady hands to get the best out of the camera especially at night.
      2. It gets really hot at times.

      I haven’t used the Jiayu S3 yet, but given the price I would say give it a shot.

    I think this the rumerd Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro.

    Specs include the latest 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor along with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. The front will feature a 5.5-inch 2K display. At the back, there will be a 16MP camera with OIS, Lazer Autofocus technology, and three LED flash. 3400mAh non-removable battary and Lollipop OS.

    Finally Do not know if the rumers true or not, but it said that it will be announce at MWC 2015.

    Looks good but being lenovo it will be ridiculously overpriced, probably $800+.

    It seems that the Elefone Be Pro camera is an Omnivision 8 mgp and not a Sony 13 mgp.
    Really or false? What do you think about it?

    Is that a USB 3.1 connector?

    It seems to me that there were no comments, here, about the Lenovo K920 Z2pro. I think it deserves a review. It seems to be a very good phone. I hope the K930 will be tested here with the advice of Andi.

    Looks likely to be a beast, if it is the Z3 Vibe Pro with those specs, especially if they include Lollipop with regular updates. If I get the money might be an option.

    What’s the point of glass back? Oh well I guess they’re just following the fads…

    Ever since owning the K900, I won’t be getting another metal Lenovo phone anytime soon. After using it for a little over a month, it’s already got two noticeable scratches and a big concave dent in the metal back plate (right where the SIM tray is). Now, I’m not exactly rough with my mobile devices (heck, I used a metal iPhone 5 for a year without major marks), so I suspect that the metal they use is lower quality compared to some of the other premium brands.
