At the MWC 2015 show, Lenovo appears to be on a full swing as it is aggressively launching numerous devices. The vendor has announced a couple of tablets in the Tab 2 lineup, the A7000 smartphone and the camera centric Lenovo Vibe Shot smartphone priced at $349 as well.
The Vibe Shot resembles a camera in terms of design and it can be called a cameraphone as it features embedded editing tools supporting professional photography. The device runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed.
Detailing on technical specifications, the Lenovo Vibe Shot is bestowed with a 5 inch display with Full HD 1080p resolution translating to 441 ppi pixel density. Powering the device from within is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with 64 bit computing support.
There is 32 GB of default storage capacity that can be expanded further by another 128 GB. Also, there is 3 GB of RAM to aid the processor in rendering high levels of multi-tasking.
On the imaging front, the Lenovo Vibe Shot uses a 16 MP camera at its back with OIS, BSI, laser auto focus to render double the focusing speed in comparison to non-laser auto focus sensors, six-piece lens and tricolor flash to tweak the luminosity of the snaps based on the lighting conditions. Notably, no other smartphone has come up with such tricolor flash before.
Up front, there is an 8 MP snapper for video conferencing and clicking selfies. There is a dedicated camera shutter button as well onboard the handset and another toggle to flip between smart and pro shooting modes. The pro mode supports adjusting the ISO, white balance and other aspects.
Other goodies of the imaging centric Lenovo Vibe Shot include 3G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, dual SIM support and Bluetooth for connectivity and a 2,900 mAh battery to energize it.
In terms of exterior looks, the Lenovo offering resembles a camera when it is held in the landscape mode. The handset flaunts a metallic strip at the back and this is where the tricolor flash is housed alongside the round modular lens.
