Lenovo Vibe Z Launched; Quad-core Processor, Gesture Controls, Jelly Bean & LTE For $549

Lenovo has stepped into the New Year by unveiling its latest flagship smartphone, the Vibe Z. It is the first smartphone from the personal technology manufacturer to have LTE capabilities. Unlike other competitors who are flooding the market with poly-carbonate body smartphones, Lenovo has tried something different by giving the Vibe Z an outer casing made out of silver or titanium. The Vibe Z is 7.9mm thick and despite a metal body it weighs just 147 grams. The phone features gesture controls to bring up the notification centre and settings menu. Users can also configure custom gestures. The Lenovo Vibe Z comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD resolution display which means it manages to achieve a pixels per inch figure of 400. Underneath the hood we find a 2.2 GHz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM entrusted with the task of running Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean).

Your photography needs are taken care of with the Vibe Z’s 13 MP rear camera which has got a f1.8 aperture lens. The company’s press release claims that the lens and its enhanced imaging software can easily handle low light shots. On the front, ‘selfie’ enthusiasts will be glad to find an 84 degree wide-angle lens equipped 5 MP camera. The Lenovo Vibe Z comes with an ample internal storage space of 16 GB but we aren’t sure about any expandable storage since the #-Link-Snipped-# has not mentioned any details regarding the same. The Vibe Z has got Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity options and is powered by a 3000 mAh battery that can last up to 27 days on standby and offer 33 hours of talktime.

    Design is smooth, and silver touch is making it eye catching. To Start with 13 MP camera seems to be impressive with 13MP, internal memory (16 GB) is not bad either.

    Now this "Gesture control" seems to be an interesting step from Lenovo. In some premium Cars we have gesture controls enabled software. Can we have a Android version that completely works on gestures, no need of Touch? Can be a food of thought for developers?

    Meanwhile at $549 this seems to be a good buy.
