Lenovo Malaysia has finally brought in its Vibe Z2 Pro, its flagship phablet that could take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Huawei Ascend Mate 7. The Vibe Z2 Pro is offered at RM2,299 and Lenovo is bundling a JBL E-40 Bluetooth headphone worth RM428. Earlier this month, the Vibe Z2 Pro was offered at RM2,199 for its grey import unit.
The Vibe Z2 Pro is quite a beast in both size and specs. The front gets a 6.0″ Quad HD display that pushes a highly dense 490ppi (pixels per inch) while underneath it is running on a 2.5GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974AC) processor with 3GB of RAM and has 32GB of storage which is non-expandable. Considering Quad HD resolution could take a hit on battery life, the Vibe Z2 Pro packs a massive 4,000mAh capacity battery but it still manages to be slim at just 7.7mm thick. Overall, it weighs a little bit heavier at 179 grams.
In the imaging department, the Vibe Z2 Pro gets a higher 16MP camera which is further enhanced with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and dual-LED flash. For greater photography possibilities, it also gets a Pro-Camera feature which is similar to Nokia’s Pro Cam. Meanwhile selfie shots are handled by its front facing 5MP camera.
3 Colours are available – Ebony, Graphite Grey and Champagne Gold and out of the box, it runs on Android 4.4 with Vibe UI 2.0. Build quality is excellent thanks to its metal body that wraps from the back and towards the sides. Connectivity wise, it supports WiFI 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0 HS and 4G LTE supporting our local Band 3 and 7. If you use multiple telcos, the Vibe Z2 Pro is also a dual-SIM device with the 2nd slot used for 2G connectivity.
