Lenovo's purchase of Motorola from Google went through at the start of this year and with the backing of the Chinese company Motorola has been able to deliver some very good products in 2015. However, while both Lenovo and Motorola have been operating separately it is thought that Lenovo will merge its own mobile division into Motorola to form one company.
Lenovo rolled out a bunch of new smartphones at IFA last week, but the company left one behind to launch this week. The Vibe X3 is actually not new to us as it was first leaked way back in February and was not launched, leading us to think it arrived as something else. Not so however as Lenovo is now pushing the Vibe X3 to release.
Lenovo has unveiled a smartphone at the IFA trade show that sports dual cameras on the front facing (screen) side of the handset. The device is the Vibe S1, a high end smartphone that Lenovo is clearly pushing as something of a selfie enthusiasts dream.
Among the smartphones being shown off by Lenovo at IFA in Berlin are the Vibe P1 and Vibe P1m, a pair of handsets that are high end and have one particular calling card. That is their batteries, with the Vibe smartphones packing among the largest juicers in the mobile market.
Is it a smartphone or is it a tablet? Lenovo is sort of aiming for the former, which makes its newly announced Phab Plus among the biggest smartphones available. This enormous handset comes with a massive 6.8-inch screen, which is much larger than just about any other mainstream smartphone on the market.
Lenovo's new Vibe X3 has been reported for some time and now it seems as though the handset is close to launching after passing through GFXBench recently. The overall specs seem to show that Lenovo's latest mid-range smartphone will be a solid overall package and should come with an affordable price tag once it launches at IFA in Berlin last month.
Lenovo has announced a brand new ThinkPad 10 tablet/laptop replacement at its TechWorld event in Beijing, China. This is a milestone product in some ways as it is the first officially announced device that is being marketed as a Windows 10 slate (although it is running Windows 8.1 for now). As for the slate itself, it is a high end performer that offers PC tasks in a portable package, almost exactly like Microsoft's excellent Surface 3.
The ASUS ZenFone 2 had its position as the only smartphone packing 4GB of RAM for a little while before Xiaomi announced the Mi Note Pro. Now Lenovo has joined the 4GB party with the launch of the K80, the Chinese company's latest mid-range smartphone.
Lenovo has released a new smartphone in China today called the Lenovo K3 Note and it will compete with the likes of Xiaomi at and Meizu in the mega-affordable smartphone market. The handset comes with a price tag of just $145, although it is likely to be exclusive to China or other emerging markets.
