Lenovo VIBE Shot, the First Camera Smartphone Crossover Device | Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced the launch of the Lenovo VIBE Shot, a smartphone that promises the best of both worlds. With a 16MP main camera and 5.0” Full HD screen promising the best of both worlds by combining a fabulous camera with a premium smartphone, the VIBE Shot is tailored specifically for both shutterbugs and savvy socials who love a good design. Users will never again miss a shot of life’s special moments with the arrival of the Lenovo VIBE Shot.
“The VIBE Shot is a stylish yet powerful smartphone that is perfect for people who want both a phone and a camera. This latest product underlines our sustained commitment and effort to innovation, by giving people what they need, in a compelling design,” said Foo Mun Yee, Country Lead, Lenovo Smartphone, Malaysia.
Like a standalone shooter, the VIBE Shot features a dedicated shutter button, which can be used to instantly activate the camera function to snap the perfect shot. Its on-board infrared auto-focusing (AF) system is twice as fast as a conventional autofocus*, while the tri-color LED flash ensures more realistic skin tones – a world’s first for smartphones.
Meanwhile, superior low-light performance and clarity for shooting images in darker interiors or at night are supported by a 16:9 BSI sensor, and optical image stabilization (OIS) tech ensures reduced blurring should the camera accidentally move or shake.
At the flick of a switch, users can easily toggle between the camera’s Auto and Pro modes. Targeted at budding shutterbugs, a highlight of the Auto Mode is its Smart Composition function, incorporating automatic scene detection and an onscreen “point & shoot” guidance. The Pro mode, on the other hand, gives enthusiasts manual controls such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings, enabling limitless compositions to unlock their creativity. Another world’s first is the panoramic selfie feature that lets you take three selfies and turn them into one that includes more people.
Keeping the VIBE Shot snappy is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor on top of an octa-core chip which is engineered for multitasking while remaining extremely power efficient at the same time. 3GB of RAM adds to the performance, and a 32GB of built-in storage, expandable up to 128GB through a microSD card support, enables you to have all your photos with you all the time. With 4G / LTE support, users can expect the smoothest Web browsing and online gaming experiences too.
Besides picture perfect images, the VIBE Shot utilizes premium materials boasting a full aluminum outer frame, plus front and back Corning Gorilla glass. Merely 7.6mm thick, the VIBE Shot will slide readily into any pocket without leaving an unsightly bulge. For now, it will be available in Carmine Red and Graphite Grey to reflect each user’s distinct persona and digital lifestyle.
The Lenovo VIBE Shot will be made available at all Lenovo Smartphone Retail Partners from 18 August 2015 onwards at RM1,399.
