This week Lenovo announced a new smartphone in India, Vibe X3, that mirrors Moto series design and features built-in TheatherMax (widescreen cinematic experience powered by Lenovo VR technology) as well as surround sound technology (2 x front-facing Dolby Atmos stereo speakers), ESS SABRE 9018C2M and a dedicated DAC that not too many phones sport today, plus a 3-chip amplifier developed by Texas Instruments OPA1612M. Basically, with VIbe X3, Lenovo is looking to place itself where Samsung with its Galaxy S/Note series and Gear VR is, but a level higher.
Lenovo Vibe X3 offers Motorola Moto series like build quality, but not that impressive hardware, as the company declared that it is focusing more on the user experience, and not on high performance.
Vibe X3 feature 5.5″ Full HD PerfectView display, it is equipped with Qualcomm’s hexa-core Snapdragon 808 CPU, Adreno 418 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM (microSD card slot included for up to 128GB), dual SIM nano slots, 4G LTE, NFC, fingerprint technology, 3,500 mAh battery, 8MP front-facing camera, 21MP main camera and it runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The Vibe X3 will go on sale as an exclusive for Amazon India starting January 28 at 2PM. The price tag set by Amazon is 19,999 Rupees, about 270 Euros. One can also purchase the virtual reality headset dubbed AntVR for 1,299 Rupees, about 20 Euro.
