Some may not have seen much action from Lenovo when it comes to mobile offerings, especially in Europe and North American regions. Latest speculations of a forthcoming rollout of Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro — an interestingly ambitious sequel to its Vibe Z smartphone — seem to show the company is moving forward and may not be giving up on its global ambitions yet.
In fact, the company has become one of the biggest handset vendors in the world, thanks to its markets around Asia, particularly China.
Again, if we were to rely on gathered speculations and insider reports, Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro device is likely one Android smartphone to beat.
Based on insider reports from China, the new Vibe smartphone has a metallic body instead of the plastic body of Vibe Z K910. The metallic body is said to be slender at 7.7mm. It boasts of a 6-inch Quad High Definition resolution display of 2,560 x 1,440, 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 chip, massive 4,000mAh battery, 4G LTE network support, NFC support and 16-megapixel OIS camera with dual LED flash. With a large screen, it would however more qualify as a phablet like Samsung’s Galaxy Note series.
The leaked phone image of Vibe Z2 Pro shows a dual SIM support, which is unsurprising knowing that China-manufactured handsets have been known for dual SIM capabilities and its markets have been very welcoming of such feature as well.
Vibe Z2 Pro’s availability is a big question, however, given that the company is more focused on its Asian markets. Insider reports claim initial launch is again seen toward the Chinese market. Recall that previous smartphones of Lenovo didn’t reach U.S. shores. Yet some analysts say global release couldn’t be set aside, and like what we said earlier, given Lenovo’s global ambitions.
In a statement released on January 29 this year, following an agreement with Google, Lenovo has plans to buy Motorola Mobility business for around $2.91 billion, which is seen to power up Lenovo’s spot in the smartphone markets such as Western Europe, North America and Latin America.
Word about Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro’s official release and price are kept in the dark though. Even insiders have nothing much to spill on this, except that the smartphone or phablet would be inexpensive and would come soon.
