Lenovo just launched its flagship smartphone in India, the Vibe X3 at an unbelievable pricing of Rs. 19,999/- (we’ll answer as to why in a jiffy). The device will be available exclusively on Amazon starting 2PM tomorrow. Lenovo announced the device via a webcast.
The Vibe X3 sports a 5.5″ FullHD screen with “Perfect View” feature that provides 100% color saturation. The front is dominated by the huge display and flaunts dual Dobly Atmos speakers. Speaking of speakers, the device uses a high quality ESS SABRE 9018C2M dac, three chip amplifiers and Lenovo proudly claims that the Vibe X3 has the best audio quality in a smartphone today. The phone also sports a Wolfson 8281 audio hub for crystal clear audio calls.
The grunt is provided by a hexacore Snapdragon 808 SoC. This is the same processor as found on the Nexus 5X but Lenovo promises that the UI has been heavily toned down to ensure smooth performance. There is 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. The device also has a SIM cum micro SD slot which supports up to 128GB expansion.
The Lenovo Vibe X3 comes with a 21MP Sony IMX230 sensor sporting a f/2.0, 27mm lens. The camera comes with all the bells and whistles including Phase detection autofocus, a dual-tone LED flash and can shoot 4K videos at 30fps. For the selfie lovers, the phone comes with an 8MP front facing snapper. Just beneath the camera is a fingerprint sensor.
The Vibe X3 comes hot on the heels of Lenovo’s budget flagship, the K4 Note. There were numerous leaks regarding the smartphone last year. For just under 20k ($293), you get an amazing camera, a great display and perhaps the best sounding smartphone on the block.
