It would seem that the February leak, which mentioned a total of 5 Lenovo smartphones, detailed most of the company's lineup for the year, instead of being an MWC teaser. The various models gradually crawled out of obscurity over the last few months, the most recent being the Vibe P1 Pro.
Well, next in line is the Lenovo Vibe X3, the midranger in the upper segment, set to replace the multi-layered Vibe X2. Intel on the matter comes from a GFXBench listing, which reveals plenty of key specs.
For starters the smartphone is reported to come with a 4.9-inch FullHD display - a notch below the 5 inches of the Vibe X2. The number may, however, be due to the benchmark's peculiarities, which for example cause the primary camera to be listed at 20MP, even though the 5,344 x 4,008 pixel resolution clearly amounts to 21.4MP. Now that we've mentioned it, the main shooter will be assisted by a dual-LED flash and it will be capable of shooting 2160p video too.
The smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 with its dual Cortex-A57 performance cores clocked at 1.8GHz as opposed to the 2.0GHz maximum. The other four cores don't get a clock rate in the benchmark, and neither does the Adreno 418 GPU. The Vibe X3 will come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, but a microSD is said to provide expansion now, a feature missing in the predecessor.
The Vibe X3 will come with the full set of connectivity features, including multi-band LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS with A-GPS, the lot. A fingerprint reader on the back completes the host of sensors, and early renders also revealed a set of stereo speakers on the front.
Naturally, the lone benchmark entry sheds no light on the date of announcement, let alone pricing and availability. However, an official launch at IFA in September is a rather safe bet.
