Lenovo is a name that has been coming up more and more these days, particularly after acquiring Motorola from Google. So it’s no surprise to see that the Chinese-based manufacturer is announcing quite a few devices at CES 2015, tablets, PCs, phones and even a smartband. So let’s run through a few of the new devices that they’re bringing to the table in 2015.
What can probably be considered Lenovo’s flagship device, the Lenovo P90, will be the first smartphone to be powered by the 64-bit Intel Atom Z3560 processor and Intel LTE Advanced Modem. With a name not unlike a certain gun, the P90 focuses greatly on speed and performance, marryingÂ the 64-bit processor with a absolutely massive 4,000mAh battery, 1080p 5.5-inch display, 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. Probably the only chink in this armour is the fact the phone will be launching with Android 4.4 KitKat. The phone will be available in Pearl White, Onyx Black and Lava Red starting in February 2015 – check out some more photos of it below.
The other handset that Lenovo has announced at CES 2015 is the Lenovo VIBE X2 Pro, a limited edition smartphone that follows in the design footsteps of the original VIBE X2 but ups the screen size to 5.3-inches and adds the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, but will also be only running Android 4.4 KitKat.Â It’s also much more of a selfie device with 13MP cameras on both the front and back for you to self-indulge. The three-tone colours around the sides is a particularly interesting design choice; theÂ VIBE X2 ProÂ will be available at the beginning of April 2015 – check out some images of what the device looks like below.
To compliment the selfie-friendly VIBE X2 Pro, Lenovo has also announced the Lenovo VIBE Xtension Selfie Flash. As the name (and design) suggests, the Selfie Flash is an accessory that plugs into the audio jack of your device and provides lighting for selfie shots. What’s need about the Selfie Flash, for those photography buffs, is that it uses eight diffused LEDs to soften the flash and Lenovo claims it has 100% sync with your camera’s shutter. The Selfie Flash isn’t powered by your device, however, and can take up to 100 selfies before needing to be recharged. Lenovo hasn’t made it clear whether the accessory will be compatible with other devices or whether they will be selling it separately, only that it will be “available for use with the VIBE X2 Pro”. Check out photos of it below.
The last item on this list is possibly the most interesting for the Chinese manufacturer: the Lenovo VIBE Band VB10. Moving away from the full watch form factor that some of the other manufacturer’s have gone with and staying with the smartband format that they used for the Lenovo Smartband, the VIBE Band VB10 is clearly an evolution in both design and appearance. Equipped with an e-ink display, it provides up to 7 days of battery life while maintaining Bluetooth connection with your device, providing fitness features, phone notifications and is also waterproof. Lenovo says that the VIBE Band VB10 will also be available sometime at the beginning of April 2015 – check out some images of the wearable below.
So there you have it – quite a handful of devices from Lenovo, and we can’t wait to see some of these up close.Â Unfortunately Lenovo hasn’t provided pricing for any of these devices, but hopefully they will be released closer to the release dates.Â Stay with us for our coverage of CES 2015 on our Live Blog!
