Lenovo today unveiled the Vibe X2, its premium mid-range smartphone featuring a bold new multi-layered design language. Complementing the groundbreaking new aesthetics is the powerful 4G LTE-enabled MediaTek chip putting True Octa-Core power in your hands. The new device won a prestigious design award at IFA 2014 earlier this year.
The new Vibe is supported by innovative click-on cases called Vibe Xtension, which includes speakers with JBL sound and a battery extension pack.
World’s first multi-layered smartphone
The new layered design is interesting — slim and accented with bold colours. The layer of colours have harmonious shades with a smooth finish. Lenovo utilised robot arms and clean rooms and three coats of paint applied for each tone.
True Octa-Core power
Lenovo is the first global handset vendor to ship a smartphone with the latest MediaTek MT6595 True Octa-Core processor with 4G LTE. MediaTek’s processor platform has the ability to unleash the power of all eight cores simultaneously unlike rival octa-core processors. This brings superior multi-tasking performance and sustained performance-per-watt. This also translates to better battery life on the Vibe X2.
