While still a few days left for the start of CES 2014 at Las Vegas, the first devices we see in the U.S. begins to appear now. Specifically Lenovo that has been a part of the new dual SIM S930, S650 and A859, which will present its first phablet device with LTE support called the Lenovo Vibe Z.
Lenovo is a manufacturer that always surprises with devices with exquisite design, and its latest proposal, the Vibe Z continues on this line. With a thickness of just 7.9 mm, the Vibe Z is the first LTE phablet from the company that also offers a 5.5-inch Full HD LCD (1080 x 1920 pixel resolution) and 400 dots per inch density.
It houses a quad-core Qualcomm 800 Snapdragon running at 2.2 Ghz processor, the same with other devices as the Galaxy Note 3 and 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage for your most basic version.
On the back cover we find a 13 megapixel camera with autofocus and an aperture of f1.8, one of the highest in the market – remember that the Xperia Z1 has f/2.0 and Nokia Lumia 1020 has f/2.2 – This detail makes its performance in low lighting more than competent, and in fact, is promised to be excellent. Also, on the front for video calls a 5 megapixel wide-angle lens is mounted which is useful when more than two people on the screen do a video chat.
As already mentioned, the Vibe Z is the first device from Lenovo to connect to 4G LTE networks, completing this section with a dual-channel connection for Wifi and Bluetooth 4.0.
It comes with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean series can be upgraded via a future update. Like other manufacturers, Lenovo puts some customization to the Google operating system with a system for gesture recognition and motion and occasional application like Super Camera or Super Gallery, which expand the experience for both taking pictures to enjoy later.
The device will arrive in February to Asia and the Middle East before making its leap to the world and has a suprisingly affordable price for their services of $549.
