Lenovo Vibe Shot Goes Live with 16MP OIS Camera, Tricolor Flash, Is Surprisingly Affordable

Before MWC 2015, word surfaced that Lenovo would come with a bag full of goodies to Barcelona. Well, since the event kicked off, the company has already unveiled some of the new devices we have seen leak in the past few weeks.

We’re now talking about the photo-centric Android 5.0 Lollipop phone which impressed us with its looks (and not only) - the Vibe Shot. The handset is making a debut into the wild with a 5-inch display with 1080p resolution and an impressive 400+ ppi. Under the hood lives a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset which is not Qualcomm’s latest and greatest (the Snapdragon 810 is) but is still a top notch piece of silicone, nevertheless. Lenovo is also throwing in 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card). It should also be noted that the phone takes advantage of dual SIM slots, LTE connectivity and a 2900 mAh battery (which is the same as you’ll find under the hood of the 5-inch HTC One M9).

The Vibe Shot’s main selling point is its photo-centric capabilities
Now, let’s take look at the photography department, which makes this handset truly special. It’s impressive how Lenovo managed to squeeze a 16MP BSI sensor with optical stabilization, tricolor LED flash plus six-element lens with sapphire coating inside a sleek 7.3mm / 0.28 inches chassis made of aluminum. Gorilla Glass 3 is present both on the front and the rear surface on the phone. The frontal camera’s sensor is built in such a way as to be capable of shooting in low-lighting scenarios. The company makes use of the world’s first tricolor LED flash in order to allow photo luminosity to be adjusted automatically in accordance to the ambient light conditions.

The infrared focusing system used by the Chinese device maker is said to be twice as fast as the average AF system, and the shooting speed is boosted even more thanks to the physical shutter key located on the side. If you find the handset interesting, and we can’t blame you if you do, you should know that Lenovo plans to make the Vibe Shot available globally starting this June. What’s more exciting is that the company is ready to charge only $349 / €312 for this great phone. Hopefully the price won’t change in a few months. The Vibe Shot will be offered in grey, white and red.
