Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro leaked, premium body and specs
The MWC is right around the corner, and an unexpected Lenovo flagship appears to be in the pipelines, ready to be launched at the March event. Leaked images accompanied by hardware specs have made their way to Chinese social network Weibo.
The Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro is powered by the top-end Snapdragon, and 4GB of system memory is present, hitting the chipset's ceiling. A generous 64GB of onboard storage should be sufficient, but the previous Vibe Z2 Pro had a microSD slot, so this one might too.
The new device is equipped with a 5.5-inch QHD display which is a step back from the 6-inch screen of the predecessor. Still, many users find 5.5 inches to be the sweet spot for a pocketable device offering enough screen estate. The predecessor featured a huge 4,000mAh battery, which didn't impress in screen-on time, so we'll see how this one fares with 3,400mAh and a smaller display.
Lenovo has put quite a lot of effort into the main camera. It packs a 16MP sensor with optical image stabilization and laser focusing. The flash has no less than three differently tinted LEDs. Another welcome appearance is the hardware shutter button, a rarity these days.
The device is rather good-looking too, with glass and metal all over. The brushed aluminum back has been inherited from the older generation, but the gently curved edges have been replaced by a chiseled aluminum frame. The front is all glass and unfortunately keeps bezel size a mystery at this point.
The Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro will launch on Android 5.0 and is expected to be officially announced at the MWC in the beginning of March.
