Lenovo is tipped to be working on its next flagship smartphone and the successor to the Vibe Z, thought to be dubbed Vibe Z2 Pro, according to a report.
The alleged Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro has been leaked in a number of images courtesy a Chinese publication. The alleged Vibe Z2 Pro is seen sporting a metal chassis which is said to be 7.7mm-thick.
The leaked images of the alleged Vibe Z2 Pro indicate that the handset will feature dual-SIM support; however we can expect this to vary depending on the market.
Further, the Chinese publication has also obtained some specifications of the unannounced Vibe Z2 Pro, including a 6-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) display; quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz; 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS and dual LED flash; NFC support, and a 4000mAh battery.
Notably, in one of the leaked Vibe Z2 Pro images, the "Vibe" branding is seen on the rear panel, appearing to have replaced the Lenovo brand's logo completely. Unfortunately, there is no word as to when Lenovo will be releasing the alleged Vibe Z2 Pro globally.
