Lenovo Malaysia will be launching its photography-centric VIBE Shot next week. Announced during MWC 2015, this device packs a 16MP main camera with Optical Image Stabilisation and comes with a first of its kind Tri-LED flash on a smart phone. To show that it means business, the back looks like a compact camera and it has a dedicated shutter button and a slider that switches between Smart and Pro modes.
Underneath its glass and metal frame body, the VIBE Shot gets a decent Snapdragon 615 Octa-Core processor that’s mated to 3GB of RAM. The front gets a compact 5″ display that does Full HD 1080p resolution with additional Gorilla Glass protection. In terms of storage, it comes in either 16GB or 32GB options which is expandable via microSD.
Apart from its 16MP main camera that’s guided with Laser Auto focus, selfie shots on the VIBE Shot is handled by its 8MP front camera. To satisfy the narcissists, it gets a host of beautification features that apply based on your detected age. For zippy internet experience this is a 4G LTE device and it also supports Dual-SIMs. Keeping the lights on is a 2,900mAh capacity battery which is pretty decent in this category. Prior to this, the imported units have been found locally with the 16GB capacity version going for RM1,059 while its larger 32GB version is priced at RM1,299.
