The Vibe Z2 Pro is the first Quad HD smartphone from Lenovo


Lenovo today announced the Vibe Z2 Pro, its first Quad HD smartphone that hopes to do battle with the likes of the LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A. Not only does it have an insanely sharp display, but it’s also packing a super speedy processor, a massive battery, and a 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization.

It’s a 6-inch display, to be precise — that’s bigger than the Galaxy Note 3’s — and it boasts a 2560×1440 resolution. The Vibe Z2 Pro is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz and 3GB of RAM, and there’s 32GB of storage built-in. It also offers 4G LTE connectivity, a 4,000mAh battery, and there’ll be a second model with dual SIM card slots.

The Vibe Z2 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Lenovo’s Vibe 2.0 UI, which, although heavily skinned and brightly colored, comes with some nice features. Its camera app looks particularly impressive, with auto-scene detection, ultra night mode, and a pro mode that gives you manual control over things like contrast and ISO.

The most impressive thing about the Vibe Z2 Pro may not be its software or its specifications, however, but rather its design instead. It sports a precision-crafted metallic unibody design that’s available in titanium, gold, or black — and it measures just 7.7mm thin, 0.2mm thinner than the iPhone 5s.

The Vibe Z2 Pro will go on sale in China next month, but Lenovo is yet to confirm when or if it will be available in other markets.
