Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro flagship smartphone goes official with 6-inch Quad HD screen, metal body and generous battery
Back in June we reported that a certain handsome phablet called Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro made an appearance at Mobile Asia Expo in Shanghai. One might think that it was Lenovo’s way of announcing the device, but apparently it wasn’t, as the company made its “beast of a phone” official on August 5th via Google+. The list of specs doesn’t leave any room for doubt – Lenovo’s new offering with its 6-inch Quad HD screen, metal body and generous battery is the king of flagship smartphones.
Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro – The Beast of a Phone.
The Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro is an impressive device inside out. It boasts a massive 6-inch Quad HD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution which works out to a pixel density of about 490 ppi. The screen is also capable of reaching 500 nits of brightness which is something very few phones (if any) can achieve. Inside ticks a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor with Adreno 330 GPU to take care of graphics and 3 GB of RAM to help with multitasking.
Internal memory is set at 32 GB; however, there is no microSD slot for storage expansion. As for the camera, it comes with 16-megapixel sensor, optical image stabilization, dual LED and 4K video recording. Rounding up the specs is a 4,000 mAh battery which is one of the largest ever used in a smartphone. The phablet also supports dual-SIM (GSM + LTE).
All these premium components are packed into a 156 x 81.3 х 7.7 mm body which weighs in at 179 grams. As you see, the profile is pretty slim, especially if you take into consideration the huge battery. The case is made of brushed metal which will come in three color options – black, gold and white.
Lenovo wasn’t very forthcoming when it comes to availability and pricing. The Vibe Z2 Pro is expected to hit the stores in September, most likely only in Asia and maybe in several markets in Europe. In Russia, the phone will go for RUB 29,990 which is approximately $834. Unfortunately, we don’t know when the device might grace us with its presence if ever. However, if it was to arrive at the US shore, would you be interested?
