Lenovo Vibe Z2

IFA 2014 HTC announced its first Snapdragon 615-powered Desire 820 earlier today, and Lenovo is following suit with the Vibe Z2, a 5.5-inch smartphone powered by the same 64-bit processor.

Boasting a similar metallic design as the first-generation Vibe Z, the Vibe Z2 features a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 screen, quad-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 615 SoC, 32 GB internal storage, LTE connectivity and dual-SIM functionality. The device comes with a 13 MP camera at the back that features a Sony Exmor imaging sensor along with an LED flash module and BSI, as well as an 8 MP front shooter that has an anti-distortion lens.

Priced at $429, the Vibe Z2 will be available in China in October, and Lenovo will bring the device to Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe and the Middle East later this year.

Lenovo jumps on 64-bit bandwagon with Vibe Z2

I agree totally. I was hoping with the purchase of Motorola we would see some of their phones hit our shores. I definitely like the looks of this new Vibe enough to spend some money with them.

I don't think the Moto acquisition has been finalized yet. Was listening to Pocketnow podcast from last weekend and they were saying with today being the G2, X1 announcement that this may be the last hurrah of Moto under Google before Lenovo takes over.

I think Lenovo will likely use the Motorola brand as an in for their kinds of phones to the US.

You might be right there, 4 X A53, 4X A57 cores, both cores 64 bit, 4 low power, 4 high power, improved architecture, higher transistor no cores. Might be wrong, somebody post if you have better information.
