Lenovo has launched its Vibe X3 smartphone in India, which will be the company’s flagship device in the market. The phone will be available through Amazon for INR 19,999 ($293).
The Vibe X3 puts a lot of focus on the audio quality aspect. The phone has powerful stereo speakers up front. The headphone output is handled by a premium 32-bit ESS Sabre 9018C2M DAC with 3x op-amp for music and Cirrus Logic Wolfson WM8281 for phone calls. The phone also offers Dolby Atmos effect over headphones and speakers.
Otherwise, the specs are fairly run of the mill. It has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage with microSD support, dual SIM, LTE, IR, 21 megapixel rear camera with PDAF and 4K, fingerprint sensor, 3600mAh battery, and Android 5.1 with Vibe UI.
Lenovo stresses the focus is more on the experience than the specs. The phone has a metal frame with a curved back for a comfortable grip. The display has 100% NTSC color gamut coverage. The Vibe UI has been scaled back a bit and is closer to stock Android in some places. The phone also supports Lenovo’s TheaterMax feature that works with the optional ANTVR headset for a bigscreen experience for your movies or games.
The phone goes on sale tomorrow, January 28, on Amazon at 2PM IST.
