Moving up the range the next level of Lenovo Vibe X3 will set you back 2499 Yuan with the same audio hardware, but 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory.
The top of the range Lenovo Vibe X3 has a price tag of 2999 Yuan with 64GB ROM.
Along with the shared audio hardware, all three versions of the Lenovo Vibe X3 come with a 21 mega-pixel main camera with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus), dual tone LED flash, and front 8 mega-pixel sensor.
Update: The Lenovo pages have conflicting information and it appears the 1899 Yuan version of the Lenovo Vibe X3 might ship with a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, we are trying to confirm the details now.
Each model also boasts a fingerprint scanner on the back, NFC, and large 3600mAh battery and Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0!
As customers in China won’t be receiving their Lenovo Vibe X3 phones until 25th November, don’t expect international resellers to have stock of the phone until late November/Early December.
Past Lenovo phones haven’t really managed to grab my attention, but the Vibe X3’s dual front speakers, dedicated audio, and decent camera hardware has me intrigued. What do you guys think?
