Lenovo Vibe X3 is now available in India at Rs 19999

Lenovo Vibe X3 has been launched to the Indian market at a price of Rs.19999.

After the social network teasers last week, Lenovo has finally launched the successor to Vibe X2 in India, almost two months after the handset’s debut in China.

The Vibe X3 is intended for multimedia users, with the audio playback capabilities being the USP of the smartphone, being equipped with three Texas Instruments OPA1612 amplifiers with Turbo Hi-Fi stereo enhancement mode to offer audiophile quality output, sans a DAC (digital-to-analog converter). It also packs a Cirrus Logic WM8281 codec for noise cancellation, and boasts of a Dolby Atmos certification for surround sound effects.

It also supports TheatreMax, a service which captures content and renders it for left and right eye, delivering a large screen cinematic experience when used with AntVR headset, introduced alongside Lenovo K4 Note. Interested users can buy the headset separately at Rs. 1,299 and utilize it with the device’s VR mode which allows the user to connect the ANT VR headset to the device while watching movies or while playing games.

The smartphone which is to be exclusively available via Amazon India, will go on open sale tomorrow from 2PMonward, giving competition to the likes of YU Yutopia and OnePlus 2.

The 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) smartphone secured from scratches by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection runs on a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor (dual core A57 at 1.8GHz + quad-core A53 at 1.4GHz) chipset coupled with 3GB of DDR3 RAM, Adreno 418 GPU and 32GB of onboard storage.

The handset display delivers 100 percent colour reproduction, has 1500:1 contrast ratio, and features a 178 degree wide viewing angle, claims the company.

As to the photography section, the Vibe X3 features a 21MP Sony IMX230 rear shooter with PDAF (phase detection autofocus), LED flash, 6P Lens, f/2.0 aperture, with Vibe Enhancement features such as the Pro Mode, Smart Assist, Slow Motion, and Nightscape, and supports 4K video recording, slow motion and time-lapse videos. There is an 8-megapixel front facing camera on board as well. Lenovo Vibe X3 also contains a fingerprint sensor at the rear panel just below the primary camera.

The smartphone comes with an IR blaster, which when added to the Peel app, lets users view movies and serials on the television set.

A hybrid microSD card slot with support for up to 128GB is also present, which either allows usage of two SIM cards or one SIM card and a microSD card slot, but not both.

It comes with connectivity options such as 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth and GPS, and  runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop wrapped under Lenovo’s Vibe UI.

Powered with 3,500mAh non-removable battery, it also inculcates Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 2.0 support. The ‘Youth’ variant of the Vibe X3 smartphone, is yet to surface on the Indian market.
