Lenovo shows they still know how to build an impressive phone with the Vibe Z2 Pro

Lenovo might not have any selling power in all but their core Asian markets (unless you count Motorola), but they do know how to make a pretty nice smartphone. You can add another one to their list of impressive accomplishment thanks to the launch of the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro. This phablet isn’t for the weak at heart or small at hand — here’s what you’d be getting yourself into should you decide you want to import one:

  • 6-inch 2560 x 1440 display
  • 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor
  • 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (no microSD, sadly)
  • 16 megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash
  • 4,000mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat w/ Vibe UI 2.0
  • 7.7mm thin
  • Metal unibody frame
  • Three colors: Black, gold and titanium

Unfortunately Lenovo didn’t go into grave detail about what’s at work on the software side of things, though it shouldn’t be such a huge departure from Android’s roots that you won’t be able to recognize what you’re using. We’ll have to wait to hear more from Lenovo regarding all that.

And as we said before — all of this probably won’t matter much to a good chunk of you considering their devices don’t often stray outside of Asia. Watch the promo video above and let us know if you’d spring for one if it were ever made available in your neck of the woods.

    No they have bought a company that still knows how to make phones.

      This phone would have been designed long before the Moto acquisition.

      4000 mAh battery, nice.

        You’d think that, but it sure has a lot of moto looking influence… The badge around the camera with the red trim being the one huge one that stands out to me.

          The badge around the camera looks the same as the original Vibe Z. The red trim is new though.

          The Motorola purchase isn’t even final yet… there just can’t be any influence.

    • Aaron Peromsik

      They have expressed a desire to buy a company that knows how to make phones. Deal has not closed yet, although you’d never know it from the articles here. Every time I read something about it here I have to go ask Google if I missed something… and the answer is still no. http://www.cnet.com/news/lenovo-ibm-motorola-deals-to-wrap-up-by-2015/

    I like the phone design. It’s too large for my use case and they are known for lack of support (updates) on their phones.

  • dhinged

    Too big, too thin, too square, too weird, and the music for that video is just a little too scary.

  • Jay Holm

    But they don’t exist inside the U.S!

    • Paul

      This site is also used by people outside the US.

      • mcl630

        And if you really wanted this, you could always buy it online from overseas.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    They really need to at least make it available in the US for me to care about it’s specs. Unlocked or carrier whatever.

  • Tony Lai

    Looks like a dual sim at video 1:10

    Slightly dumbed down and I see the nexus 6.
