Lenovo is perhaps better known for laptops than phones in the UK, but it’s actually one of the biggest global smartphone manufacturers in terms of volume, finishing behind only Apple and Samsung in 4Q14. True story.
Starting with the Lenovo Vibe Shot’s headline feature, the camera, it comes in at flagship-level 16MP, with optical image stabilisation (OIS; as found on the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy S6), tricolor LED flash, infrared focus, and a six-element lens with Apple-esque sapphire coating.
The Lenovo Vibe Shot is clearly designed to look like a camera, too, and includes a dedicated shutter button.
And the fun doesn’t end there, as the rest of the Lenovo Vibe Shot spec sheet makes for interesting – and indeed impressive – reading.
For starters, Lenovo Vibe Shot specs include a 5in 1080p display (441 PPI), on par with the One M9, alongside a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, multitasking-friendly 3GB of RAM, 32GB expandable storage – so there’s plenty of room for your pics, 8MP front camera, dual SIM compatibility, LTE connectivity, and a massive 2,900mAh battery, all wrapped up in a 7.3mm glass and metal bod.
Brilliantly, Lenovo Vibe Shot price is set at $349, which is roughly £226 in our money. Of course it will – or would – cost more than that over here, but even pushing £275 this would be an awesome prospect.
What do you think? Could you be tempted to give the Lenovo Vibe Shot a, uhm, shot?
