Lenovo seems set to launch its Vibe X2 smartphone running Android L, with the company sending lollipop-featuring invites for its September 4 pre-IFA 2014 event.
On the invitation, Lenovo shows a big lollipop (appearing to be referring to Android L) with the Vibe X2 name written at its centre. The invite also contains a tongue-in-cheek reference to Apple's September 9 invite, which had said "Wish we could say more." Lenovo on its own invite says, "We can't say anything either."
While we will know more about the Vibe X2 in less than a week's time, recent leaks (via gdgtarena have pointed a 2.2GHz dual-core processor, 5-inch full-HD touchscreen, 2GB of RAM, 32GB inbuilt storage, 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 5MP front-facing camera.
Based on the leaks, the Vibe X2 features nearly the same specifications as its predecessor, the Vibe X, except a bumped-up processor. The Vibe X was launched in December last year and got a price cut by roughly Rs. 3,000 in May this year - bringing the cost down to Rs. 22,999.
With the Vibe X2 launch invite, Lenovo may just have revealed that the real name of Android L is Lollipop, and not Lemon Meringue Pie as recently reported. Of course, until Google confirms the name - even such a revelation by a Google partner cannot be taken as confirmation.
Lenovo last month added a new phablet to its 'Vibe' portfolio by launching the Vibe Z2 Pro. The key specifications of the handset are 6-inch Quad-HD (1440x2560 pixel) display; Android 4.4 KitKat; quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon (MSM8974AC) 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz; 3GB of RAM; 16-megapixel rear camera; 5-megapixel front camera; 32GB of inbuilt storage (non-expandable), and 4000mAh battery.
