Right on cue, Lenovo’s Phab2 Pro is now available to purchase from its online store in the US. The Chinese company revealed the launch date last week, and it’s stayed on schedule. The Phab2 Pro is special because it’s the first shipping phone to be Tango-enabled. Tango is Google’s augmented reality play for your handheld device. The Phab2 Pro is priced at $499.99 unlocked, and for now its launch seems to be limited to the US. Google
It’s been almost a year now since Lenovo first announced the new P50 and P70 mobile workstations, which were 15-inch and 17-inch notebooks, respectively. The part of the announcement which likely caused the most buzz was that Intel was now going to offer their professional Xeon parts in a laptop, with the launch of the Xeon E3-1500M v5 chip. Previous to this, mobile workstations
Lenovo this week upgraded its range of 2-way workstations with Intel’s new Xeon E5 v4 microprocessors as well as recently announced NVIDIA’s Quadro M6000 24 GB graphics card. The new ThinkStation P910 and P710 machines rely on the chassis and design of their predecessors and have a lot of similarities with machines introduced in 2014. However, the new systems have a number of improvements
Back in August 2015, Lenovo teased a Pro version of the Vibe P1 handset and the device was even featured in a rather extensive hands-on photo session. However, a lot of time passed since then with practically no word on the upgraded model, up until today, when the learn that the device was quietly made official under the P1 Turbo moniker. Despite the name change the official specs match up almost perfectly with the
Despite basically pioneering the concept of a smartphone with a built-in fingerprint scanner with the Atrix 4G back in 2011, Motorola hasn’t been quick to jump back on this train last year, when such sensors have been featured in pretty much every high-end Android device. That will change in 2016, however. Chen Xudong, SVP of Lenovo and president for Lenovo China and Asia Pacific, has revealed that all Moto-branded handsets launching
As soon as the USB-C connector and alternate modes were announced with DisplayPort adding support, I instantly envisioned a monitor with USB-C as the single cable to allow docking. With the added Power Delivery v2.0 available with USB-C, this single cable could offer video, peripherals, and laptop charging, since Power Delivery v2.0 can offer up to 100 Watts of power. Since most laptops
Yes, the new Lenovo Phab Plus is enormous and unweildy. No, it’s not worth buying if you do not explicitly want a huge phone – or a tablet…
Lenovo’s Yoga line has been consistently at the forefront of attempting to define exactly what a combination clamshell laptop ‘that’s also a sort of tablet’ should be. Over…
Introduction How times have changed – it was not that long ago that you could hardly get a feature phone for $150, and these days this amount gets…
When manufacturers get into price wars with each other, it’s customers who win the most. Lenovo has fired the latest salvo, bringing full-HD 1080p screens to the sub-Rs. 10,000 market. The Lenovo K3 Note is a 5.5-inch smartphone with specifications that would have been pretty much top tier not more than two years ago. The company is breaking new ground in terms of value for money, but not so much in terms of strategy.
People go crazy lengths to take a great selfie, and the Lenovo Vibe S1 is an ode to the selfie generation. It comes with a dual front camera setup – 8-megapixel primary shooter, and a 2-megapixel camera that senses depth information. This setup, of course, is not dissimilar to what we’ve seen on the likes of the HTC One M8, but that was on the rear camera. Lenovo Vibe S1 brings the same technology to the front shooter.
Lenovo is getting pretty aggressive, with all its most recent products having distinctive personalities. The Vibe X2 is fun and fresh, but it isn’t just about superficial appearances. This device packs some impressive hardware under the hood and has a very attractive price too. We’re really interesting in seeing what Lenovo has managed to pull off here. Lenovo might not command the same respect for its
Lenovo’s ThinkPad lineup needs almost no introduction, being one of the most well known business lineups around. The T series has been around for what seems like forever, and it is the premium lined aimed at the business and enterprise segments. The lineup includes both 14 and 15-inch models, and today we have the ThinkPad T450s which is a 14-inch model. The “s” addendum designates
Lenovo announced four new smartphones at IFA in Berlin last week – the Lenovo Vibe S1, Lenovo Vibe P1, Lenovo P1m, and Lenovo Phab. We spotted the Lenovo Phab and the Phab Plus looking confused between the smartphones and tablet section of the Lenovo pavilion at IFA in Berlin. It seems someone in the Lenovo marketing department read about slowing tablet sales and decided they can shave 0.02-inches of a display’s
Even before major telecom players such as Reliance Jio and Vodafone roll out their 4G networks on a nation-wide scale, brands including Xiaomi, Micromax (Yu Televentures) and Lenovo are looking to introduce budget 4G-enabled smartphones in the Indian market. Looking at the enthusiasm of these companies we can be assured of one thing – at least someone is optimistic that 4G will be adopted rapidly. China-based
Lenovo as a brand has been growing its customer base by creating unique devices with quirky innovations (most notably the Yoga series) at fairly affordable prices. Despite being based out of China, its reputation in India is really good. Last year the company promoted its metal-bodied K900 heavily all over India. The newly launched Vibe Z2 Pro is the spiritual successor to the K900 and Lenovo has really upped the
Hate how small your smartphone screen is? Have you sworn off giant phablets? Lenovo may be in the process of inventing the perfect technology for you. The Lenovo Smart Cast Smartphone enables you to project images and video onto tabletops and walls. This means you may someday be able to turn any screen on your smartphone into a 10-inch-wide projection. But the Smart Cast isn’t just for passive viewing.
Earlier today, Yu launched its third smartphone called the Yureka Plus. As the name suggests, it is essentially an improved version of the Yureka launched last year. Priced at Rs 9,999, the Yureka Plus directly competes against the recently-launched Lenovo K3 Note. We compare the two smartphones on the basis of their price, specifications and comparison, to see how each fare. Price The first round is a tie, since both the smartphones are priced the same at Rs 9,999. The only difference is that the Yureka Plus will go on sale exclusively via Amazon India, while the K3 Note is on sale…
In its second flash sale, the Lenovo K3 Note again disappeared in seconds. The company has announced that as many as 49,800 units of the K3 Note were sold in the two flash sales that were conducted today. Lenovo sold 30,000 units of the K3 Note black variant in 3.9 seconds at 12 noon and 19,800 units of the white variant in 4.3 seconds at 3PM. The company also revealed that a total of 4,61,863 registrations
While looking for some offers to update our weekly laptop deals, we stumbled on some unannounced Lenovo laptop, the 305, on UK retailer website Isme. That laptop is probably part of the IdeaPad family and is destined for a mainstream market. At £450 ($ 700, AU$900), it is, as expected, not very competitive against similarly priced laptops. But then again, it hasn’t been announced and isme, which is part
