We’re here at Beijing, China to cover the Lenovo Tech World 2015. One of the first announcements made by the company was the arrival of the Lenovo Vibe Shot in our country in July.
The Lenovo Vibe Shot is the company’s first imaging-centric smartphone that’s rigged with a 16-megapixel Backside Illuminated (BSI) sensor that sports a slew of other features like Infrared Autofocus system, Optical Image Stabilization and a TriColor flash unit.
Doing the heavy lifting for the Vibe Shot is the Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor with Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The pictures will be stored on the handset’s sizeable 32GB built-in storage with an option to expand it by up to 128GB using a MicroSD card.
