Lenovo Malaysia said the launch of its new premium smartphone Vibe X2, which is the world's first layered design smartphone coupled with other innovations, is another sign of the company's strong position in the PC Plus era, said the computer and handset manufacturer.
"[The new device is] uniquely crafted with three layers of distinctive colours," said Lenovo Malaysia country general manager, Khoo Hung Chuan, during the launch in Kuala Lumpur. "The Vibe X2 is the ideal smartphone for design trendsetters and style followers."
"In addition to the original layered design, which is a quantum leap forward in terms of smartphone aesthetics, the thin and light Vibe X2 also uses MediaTek's latest 4G LTE mobile processor, promising consumers True Octa-core processing power; as well as innovative Vibe Xtension click-on cases, including a speaker with hi-fi quality JBL sound," said Khoo.
"Combined with these all-new Vibe Xtensions, which gives the Vibe X2 its fourth layer, these innovations will drive Lenovo's leadership in the PC Plus era," he said.
"Our partnership with MediaTek delivers powerful performance in the stylish VIBE X2 and this will appeal to our discerning customers who value best-in-class features in their smartphones," said Khoo.
He said high-tech robotic arms and clean rooms were used to apply three coats of paint (for each tone), totalling nine coatings per phone. "To achieve a smooth finish, expert hand craftsmanship is employed as a final touch to further refine the layers."
