Lenovo’s Vibe Z2 Pro is a metallic, 1440p smartphone to worry the LG G3 (Updated)

lenovo k920 vibe z2 pro news
Lenovo has announced the Vibe Z2 Pro, its latest smartphone, which has been the subject of several rumors over the past few weeks. The company isn’t leaving success to chance either, and has not only stuffed the phone full of the latest tech, but has wrapped it all up inside a sleek metallic body.

The Vibe Z2 Pro is massive. It has a 6-inch screen, up from 5.5-inches on the first Vibe Z, and boasts a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, equalling the LG G3. However, the larger size of the display means the pixel density is slightly lower than LG’s flagship smartphone, and the Vibe Z2 Pro comes in at 490ppi, falling a little behind the G3’s superior 538ppi.

Powering the phone is a quad-core, 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB of RAM, and the battery is said to be a monster 4,000mAh, which should mean the phone won’t give up too early in the day. A 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization sits on the rear, and Lenovo says it has an effective auto-scene recognition mode, and an all-manual setting for total control. The promo video also highlights its ability to take great low-light photos.

We’re still waiting for the complete spec sheet to be made public, but expect 4G LTE connectivity, a dual-SIM option, and a 4K video shooting mode to feature. Android 4.4 KitKat is installed, and Lenovo has put its own user interface, called Vibe UI 2.0, over the top. Lenovo’s Vibe Z2 Pro’s 7.7mm thin unibody has a “metallic brushed weave” design, which not mean it’s made of metal, but a metal-like material, something like the LG G3.

It’ll be available in Titanium, Black, or Gold colors, and is all set to go on sale in September. Lenovo hasn’t released many of its previous smartphones internationally, so we shouldn’t expect the Vibe Z2 Pro to be any different. If it wants to change all that, an exciting phone like this is the one with which to do so.
