Lenovo, a well-known Chinese brand have announced a new, what we say, ultra-cheap smartphone for their customers. The Lenovo Vibe B will not become burden on your pocket; instead it might be a respectable side-phone to your flagship.
Lenovo Vibe B incorporates a 4.5-inch display with FWVGA (854×480) resolution. Under the hood there is a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek MT6735M processor supported by 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage; that can also be extended by using a microSD card up to 32 GB.
On the camera front, we see a 5 MP resolution sensor on the back accompanied with LED flash and a 2 MP shooter on the front. Lenovo claims the 2000 mAh battery can last up to a week on standby, that too on 4G.
On the connectivity side, the most-notable entrant is 4G LTE but the rest is pretty mainstream. The phone does have Dual-SIM support which is a nice touch.
The design is nothing to write home about except that it’ll come in plastic Black and White versions and weigh 144g.
The Lenovo Vibe B will be available for a very acceptable price of $87 but it might find it tough to compete at this increasingly popular price segment.
