As good as mobile photography is now days, mobile camera’s are only as good as their hardware. If you want a mega-good camera, you can opt for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, but that has the downside of being bulky and fairly unattractive. Lenovo may have just released the answer to this dilemma, announcing the release of their two new phones, the Lenovo VIBE Shot and the Lenovo A7000 and a pocket projector.
Lenovo VIBE Shot:
The Lenovo VIBE Shot is designed to be the answer to every photographers prayers. With a 16 MP camera on the rear with a six-piece modular lens and an 8 MP camera on the front. This is backed up with a full-frame 16:9 low-light sensor which will help take amazing pictures in low-light conditions. If you need to use a flash, the tricoloured flash will make sure that photoluminosity is adjusted based on ambient light conditions, whilst Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) will ensure that blurring is kept to a minimum.
The Lenovo VIBE Shot allows you to view your pictures on a 5 inch Full HD screen. Android 5.0 Lollipop comes as standard and is powered by a Qualcom Snapdragon. The device comes with 32 GB of storage as standard, and can be expanded with 128 GB micro SD card. Connection wise, you’ll be rocking LTE, Wifi Hotspot and Dual SIM will allow you to run to tarrifs on one phone.
The Lenovo VIBE Shot will come in Red, White and Grey and be priced from $349 (£227/€312) and is due to be released in June.
Lenovo also launched the Lenovo A7000 at MWC2015 which features a full 5.5 inch screen, runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and is powered by MediaTek True8core processor. This device will also have 4G/LTE and Dual SIM capability.
The real big selling point of this device is the unique Dolby Atmos speakers. To date, the A7000 will be the only mobile phone using this system from Dolby which will make sounds richer and with a greater range. Sounds are able to sound like they are coming from anywhere, even directly above you.
The Lenovo A700 will be priced at a remarkable $169 (£110/€151) and launch in March in Onyx Black or Pearl White.
Lenovo Pocket Projector:
Users who want to share their photo’s, videos or presentations with others without having everyone crowding round your 5 inch screen, you can simply connect it to the Lenovo Pocket Projector. This, tiny projector will increase your media to 110 inches on any flat surface (wall, ceiling or floor) in low-light conditions. With a 50 Lumens optical engine. Using Miracast or DLNA, you can stream your media over and it works with Android 4.3, iOS and Windows 8.1. Failing that, you can use the onboard 32 GB of storage space to store your files on. The device has a battery which can be charged and will easily last long enough for a 2 hour film.
The Lenovo Pocket Projector will be available worldwide from May and be priced as $249 (£162/€222).
