While it is understandable that point-and-shoots are out of fashion right now, Lenovo’s new phone won’t stop trying to be one. The new Vibe Shot smartphone is not only a capable and good-looking smartphone, it also features a design that’s characteristic of these cameras.
The main attraction: the 16 megapixel camera comes with a six-modular piece lens, Optical Image Stabilization, 1080p Full HD video recording at 30 fps and a Tri-color flash for more realistic lightning. The side even boasts a two-stage shooting key, something which we don’t see nowadays especially after Nokia’s demise.
The design is decidedly premium. There’s Gorilla Glass both front and back. The front also houses a 5” 1080p display with 441 ppi, and an 8 megapixel camera, also capable of 1080p videos. There’s dual-SIM connectivity onboard as well, all under a 7.3mm waistline.
Underneath, you get the new mid-range Snapdragon 615 processor with a combination of two 1 and 1.7 Ghz Cortex-A53 processors, 3 GB worth RAM and 32 GB internal storage. There’s Bluetooth 4.1 for connectivity and a 2,900 mAh battery.
