Remember the Vibe C2? Well, the smartphone had leaked online a few weeks back and was said to be the Moto E (2016) with Lenovo branding. The smartphone is now official and has been listed on Lenovo’s Russian site. Sadly, the company hasn’t released any info yet regarding the Vibe C2’s pricing or availability.
The Vibe C2 features a 5-inch IPS LCD display with 720 x 1280 HD resolution and a pixel density of 294 pixels per inch. Lenovo claims the display offers 70% NTSC color gamut and a contrast ratio of 800:1. It is powered by the MediaTek MT6735P quad-core SoC, clocked at 1 GHz with the Mali-T720 GPU taking care of the graphics. As expected from an entry-level Android smartphone, the Vibe C2 only comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard expandable storage. A higher-end variant with 16GB of built-in storage is also expected to be available at launch.
The rear camera on the Vibe C2 is an 8MP 1/4" unit from Sony, with an LED flash. On the front, the smartphone features a 5MP unit for selfies and video calls. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, and 4G LTE network support. The battery inside is a rather impressive 2750mAh unit, so we do expect it to be quite impressive in the battery life department.
Those of you who love listening to music through the loudspeaker on your phone will be happy to know that the Lenovo Vibe C2 comes with a 1W speaker which features Wavex Maxx audio technology. It also offers FM radio, something that is not commonly seen on most smartphones these days. In terms of dimensions, the Vibe C2 measures 143 x 71.4 x 8.5mm and weighs in at 139 grams. The smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, with Lenovo’s Vibe UI on top. When it goes on sale, the Vibe C2 will be available in two color options – Black and White.
