Lenovo launches six-inch quad HD Vibe Z2 Pro
Last month we heard that Lenovo’s six-inch quad HD behemoth the Vibe Z2 Pro (model K920) was nearing launch, and a teaser told us to anticipate an August 5 announcement. With the day now upon us, Lenovo is not about to disappoint, and this morning the manufacturer formally welcomed the arrival of its latest phablet.
So what are we looking at here? Well, there’s that big, beautiful six-inch 2560 x 1440 panel up front, offering a pixel density of about 490ppi. The phone’s construction offers a metallic unibody design, measuring just 7.7mm thick. Inside you’ll find a Snapdragon 801 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and a 16MP camera with optical stabilization. Lenovo seems particularly interested in highlighting the Vibe Z2 Pro’s picture-taking prowess, advertising fine-grained manual controls and advanced filters, like those correcting for lens distortion.
A six-inch phone isn’t going to be for everyone, but at least it’s a form factor large enough to really make the presence of a 2K display appreciable. Sales are slated to begin sometime in September, but we still don’t know exactly where Lenovo intends to sell this Android, nor what it might be thinking as far as pricing goes. And now with the big Vibe Z2 Pro official, we’re curious to see what becomes of that “mini” version we got a peek at yesterday.
