LAS VEGAS: CHINESE HARDWARE MAKER Lenovo showed off its first LTE smartphone, the Lenovo Vibe Z, at CES in Las Vegas on Sunday. We were there to see how it could perform in the crowded phone market.
The Lenovo Vibe Z is powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and has a 5.5in 1920x1080 resolution HD display. It comes running Google's Android 4.3 Jelly Bean mobile operating system, which the firm has skinned with its own custom user interface.
The handset measures just 7.9mm thick, and despite being crafted almost entirely from plastic, it feels very sturdy.
The Lenovo Vibe Z also features 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. It will be released in the US priced at $549, but as yet it is unclear if it will launch in the UK. µ
