At a press event this week Lenovo announced the availability of its first ever LTE smartphone, the Vibe Z.
The company started its Vibe lineup with the Vibe X, and the Vibe Z expands further on this portfolio.
“The Lenovo Vibe smartphones are designed to cater to intuitive and trendy users who demand stylish, fast and sleek smartphones to stay connected, share picture perfect photos and enjoy multimedia videos and gaming on full HD screens,” said Oliver Ebel, Lenovo MEA Vice President. “With the expansion of our Smartphone portfolio, Lenovo continues to diversify its business and build a strong foundation for the future in the PC Plus era. According to IDC Q3FY13, Lenovo, in a short period, has become the world’s third largest smartphone supplier, rapidly expanding shipments 78 percent year-over-year. This is a testament to Lenovo’s rapid ongoing transformation into a PC Plus company.”
The phone measures 7.9mm in thickness and weighs just 147 grams. It features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 5.5″ full high definition (1920×1080) IPS display, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Quad-core 2.2GHz processor. It also runs Android 4.3 and features a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera.
The Vibe Z will be available in the UAE at the end of February at all major retailers, prices at AED 1,999.
