Lenovo may be best known for laptops and their iconic TrackPoint, yet the company does have their hands in the smartphone and tablet manufacturing business. Today they announced the launch of the Vibe X S960 and the Vibe Z K910, a pair of high-end smartphones that will be limited to China initially.
For starters, the Vibe X S960 made an appearance at IFA earlier this year, though the launch and price details were unavailable then. Now we know that the 5" device will retail for around $470 when it launches on October 20th in China, with other countries following later on. Just as announced at IFA, the phone will come with a 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589T quad-core chip. The device will also run Android 4.2.2 and fits a 13MP camera in its extremely thin, 6.9mm frame.
As for the Vibe Z K910, it appears to be a modified version of the currently available K900, packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 1080p resolution on its 5.5" display. The device also features the same 13MP camera as the Vibe X and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Pricing and release info for the K910 haven't been made available yet, but it should be more expensive than the S960 given the premium components.
