Lenovo, despite being the relatively new owners of Motorola Mobility, didn't need this acquisition to produce attractive new hardware - at least for markets other than the US. The Vibe Z, which never made it to our corner of the world, looks poised to get a sequel that ups its game in every area that matters. Shots of a phone dubbed the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro have surfaced, showing a 6-inch phone with a quad HD display, a 4000mAh battery, a 16MP OIS camera with dual LED flash, and a Snapdragon 801 processor. The Vibe Z's plastic body has been replaced by an impressive metal one.


This is a dual-SIM device with LTE support, but versions that ship overseas may differ. For now, we don't yet know where in the world this phone will land. These photos appeared on Sina Weibo after reportedly having been taken at an internal event, meaning the device wasn't yet intended for the public to see, but at the same time, an official announcement shouldn't be too far off.

    Z2? Did they copy sony a little much with the name and size?

    • abobobilly

      What? So after rounded corners and numerical numbers ... they can't pick Z2 as a name because Sony has already chosen it? Comon. The full name is "Vibe Z2 Pro" ... which hardly confuses the reader about Sony's Z2.

        I have to agree with Jephri on this one. There are 25 other letters of alphabet to choose from and an infinite number of naming schemes to create. Seriously, putting Z2 in the name is a bit uncreative.

        • abobobilly

          Well, i'd also agree on the "uncreative" part.

    Hmmm... I'm gonna need to replace my Xperia Z Ultra soon...

  • abobobilly

    OMG. These screenshots are so erotic. Makes you jerk off to it. (I didn't, just to be clear -.-)

    I am actually interested to see how that 4000mAh battery will do under that QuadHD and a 6 inches of that huge ... display.

      Thanks for the clarification. I was deeply concerned.
