Lenovo’s Vibe X3 appears on TENAA


Lenovo’s Vibe X2 is fairly well known for it’s interesting layered design and pretty good build quality, as well as being a decently specced phone. Well, if you were hoping for more of the same, then I’ve got some bad news for you, and good news for everyone else.

The Lenovo Vibe X3 just made stop at TENAA, and it appears that Lenovo has entirely recreated the formula. Gone is the layered industrial design, now replaced by a much more simple looking rounded plastic chassis. The front of the device shows some pretty thin bezels, along with some front facing speakers. On the back, a fingerprint sensor sits right beneath the camera and dual LED flash.

The differences between the Vibe X2 and Vibe X3 aren’t just aesthetic though. The Vibe X3 also comes with a Snapdragon 808 processor instead of an MTK processor, along with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, expandable memory, a 21MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera and it’ll be running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.

How do you feel about this change in design? Is it just natural progression or would you have rather had a similar design to the Vibe X2? Tell us in the comments below.

    Specs-wise this is kind of the Motorola X Style with a fingerprint scanner. And wasn’t the Lenovo name supposed to be replaced with Motorola?

    If it costs as much as the X2 when it launched(around 240$)it would make a great buy, as the 808 is much more reliable than the 810 and allot faster than the SD615.

      I’m eyeing this X3 to replace my Z3C. And yes, the overheating SD615 on the Vibe P1 was the only thing holding me back at getting it. Glad they with 808.

    I think they should stick with the “X” design. It was unique,but this one is ordinary only.
