Lenovo officially announces Vibe X at IFA, 5-inch ultra-thin Android smartphone


Lenovo has officially announced its new ultra-thin smartphone at the IFA event this year. The device is named Lenovo Vibe X and is all set to challenge some of the best in the market when it comes to performance and overall thickness.
The IFA even this year has been full of awesome unveils, we already saw the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Sony Xperia Z1, but now it’s time for Lenovo to take the stage. The smartphone that Lenovo had in mind for the event was the Vibe X. You will be amazed to know that the Lenovo Vibe X has a 5-inch 1080p display but still manages to have a thickness of just 6.9mm and weighs just 120 grams. These values make the Vibe X thinner and lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S4 as well.
The Lenovo Vibe X is not only slim and light; it is equally powerful and can take on some of the best high-end smartphones. To start with, the Vibe X has a 5-inch touchscreen display with a full HD 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, making the Vibe X a tough smartphone. It is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek 6589T processor, standard GPU and has 2GB of RAM.

The device comes with 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. There is a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front facing camera on the device, so photos and videos should not be a problem at all. The camera on the Vibe X is said to support an 84-degree viewing angle for video conferencing.
We know that the device runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, but there is no information available about the battery capacity and performance. No pricing is available either, but the device will be available in China by October this year and should hit global markets by the end of the year in December.
We will be posting a complete review of the device soon, so stay tuned. For now, here is a quick look at the spec sheet of the Lenovo Vibe X.
