Hear ye, hear ye, all you mobile speed junkies and Android spec war bystanders. Lenovo has officially taken the wraps off the Vibe Z2 Pro, and strictly from a hardware standpoint, things can’t really get much better in the Android landscape.
Actually, make that from an aesthetical standpoint too, as the Z2 Pro phablet, aka K920, is quite the looker, rocking a gorgeously crafted aluminum unibody chassis, ultra-slim bezels and a gaunt 7.7 mm profile.
But don’t think for a second you’re dealing with an empty, shallow, pretty carcass, as the Z2 Pro is just as beautiful on the inside as it is when glanced at from a distance. In fact, the cutting-edge quad-core 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor and 3 GB RAM make the six-incher probably the world’s zippiest handheld, tied by the likes of LG’s G3 maybe.
The IPS LCD panel is also a near-identical match of G3’s sublime display, adding a bit of real estate and boasting the industry’s standard in terms of high-end resolution: Quad HD, aka QHD, aka 2K HD, as Lenovo calls it.
Fancy marketing jargon aside, you get 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and 490 ppi, which pretty much makes the Vibe Z2 Pro a better option for watching high-def movies than your aging living room LED TV. Camera buffs can easily replace their digital point-and-shoots with this beast too, the 16 MP rear-facing snapper carrying optical image stabilization, plus neat add-ons like auto-scene detection, ultra night mode and pro mode.
So yeah, the Android KitKat-running smartphone is a “Pro” in more than one way, including autonomy-wise, thanks to a gigantic 4,000 mAh battery well capable of handling the unceasing need for juice of the Quad HD six-inch screen and Snapdragon 801 chip. Due out in stores in September, the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro is yet to have its targeted markets and pricing structure detailed. Stay tuned.
