Lenovo takes a dig at Apple with invite teasing Vibe X2 running Android Lollipop
Lenovo is undoubtedly going to be unveiling its Vibe X2 smartphone at a 4th September pre-IFA 2014 event, according to a recent invite. You can see the press invite embedded below.
In a cheeky response to Apple’s “Wish we could say more.” tagline in its 9th September iPhone 6 launch invite, Lenovo is taking friendly a dig at Apple, saying “We can’t say anything either.” Besides having a design inspired by Apple, the Chinese tech giant’s invitation also clearly points out the star of its event. The picture shows a big lollipop which appears to be a reference to Android L (or Lollipop), along with “Vibe X2” written at the centre of the sweet. It’s not very subtle…
Although the Vibe X2 has not been talked about as much as the like of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 or the upcoming Apple iPhone, it looks like a decent flagship-grade device, according to recent leaks. The handset is said to feature an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.2GHz, a 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, 32GB built-in storage, a 13MP main shooter with LED flash and a 5MP front snapper. This means that the X2 looks to have nearly the same specs as its predecessor (except for an upgrade in processor) to the Vibe X, which was launched in December last year.
Of course, we will get the grand revealing, along with more information on specs, prices and availability on Thursday, and we also look forward Google hopefully confirming the next Android version and name of Lollipop.
