Lenovo announced today the launch of the VIBE Shot smartphone in the Philippines.
The Lenovo VIBE Shot is a fine piece of gadget utilizing premium materials – a full aluminum outer frame plus front and back Corning Gorilla glass. However, it is more than a stylish phone.
Hit the VIBE Shot’s dedicated shutter button and snap the perfect shot with its 16MP main camera in an instant. Its on-board infrared auto-focusing (AF) system is twice as fat as a conventional autofocus*, while the tri-color LED flash promises to capture more realistic skin tones – a world’s first for smartphones.
No need to worry about taking photos in low-light situations or at night as the phone’s 16:9 BSI sensor delivers a superior performance and clarity for shooting images. Should you accidentally move or shake the camera, optical image stabilization (OIS) tech ensures reduced blurring.
More and more smartphones enables you to maximize its camera features, catering to all levels of photographers. A highlight of the VIBE Shot’s Auto Mode is its Smart Composition function that incorporates automatic scene detection and an onscreen “point & shoot” guidance. On the other hand, going PRO (which you can see below) gives you limitless compositions by manually setting aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings.
Having problems taking a groufie? VIBE Shot introduces another world’s first – the panoramic selfie feature. It lets you take three selfies on its 8MP front-facing camera and stitch them up into one that includes more people.
What makes the VIBE Shot snappy is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, an octa-core chip which is engineered for multitasking and extremely power efficient at the same time and 3GB of RAM. 32GB of built-in storage, expandable up to 128GB through a microSD card, enables on-the-go individuals to have all their photos with them all the time. The device is running on Android 5.0, has a non-removable 2900mAh battery, and supports 4G/LTE.
“The VIBE Shot is part of Lenovo’s new and vibrant VIBE ON brand promise which aims to empower individuals to go their own way, by providing smartphones with the latest technology and features that they care about, at a price they wouldn’t expect,” said Dino Romano, Country Lead, Lenovo Smartphones, Philippines. “It is a stylish and powerful smartphone that consumers want, and an advanced camera that budding and seasoned photographers will love to use.”
“Lazada is thrilled to be the first to launch the Lenovo VIBE Shot in Philippines, building on the partnership we started with the highly successful Lenovo A7000. With our market leadership and being able to reach millions of consumers in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia, we are confident that our partnership with Lenovo will contribute to their continued pursuit of innovation and success,” said Mr. Inanc Balci, Chief Executive Officer of Lazada Philippines.
“Lenovo has found an excellent partner in Lazada, the biggest e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia,” said Romano. “The partnership extends our reach of customers beyond the usual and provide them with an alternative platform to buy our smartphones, ensuring that in places where we do not have an offline presence, we are still available for purchase.”
The Lenovo VIBE Shot is available at Lenovo Mobile Exclusive Stores and authorized retailers nationwide at P17,999.
It is available in Carmine Red and Graphite Grey, with a Pearl White version launching in Q4 2015. The VIBE Shot will come bundled with a free screen protector (worth P299) and a free back cover (worth P599).
