Earlier this month Lenovo unveiled its upcoming device that uses a Snapdragon 800 chipset instead of the usual MediaTek chips that the company has been using on most of its products. The Lenovo Vibe Z (K910) is a 5.5-inch 1080p device that has dual-SIM functionality.
The latest report on this model is that it will be released in China this coming November 28. There’s still no information as to how much it is going to cost but several sources estimate it to be priced at a high of 3699 Yuan ($607) to as low as 2999 Yuan ($492). Its release in the international market has not been announced so far.

The Vibe Z is definitely a high performance device owing to its use of a 2.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor combined with 2 GB of RAM. The Adreno 330 GPU used ensures that graphical performance will be smooth which should please those who love playing intense Android games.
One interesting feature of this device is that it uses a Sony IMX135 rear camera. This has a 1/3.06″ Exmor-RS sensor with 13MP resolution and a fast f/1.8 lens. Lenovo promises that the device is capable of taking great shots even at low lighting conditions. There’s also a dual-LED flash system that can lighten any poorly lit scenarios.
While there is still no mention as to what type of battery is being used the company says that it has lab tested the device and has come up with a standby time of 278.5 hours for the WCDMA + GSM model.
Those who wish to get this device may also want to get the optional flip cover accessory designed specifically for the Vibe Z. The flip cover is similar to that of the S View covers of Samsung and the Quick View cases of LG with a small window to view notifications. The only difference with the Lenovo version is that it also comes with an area where users can either slide to answer or reject an incoming call.
