Lenovo announced at Mobile World Congress 2015 three new devices: the Vibe Shot, and A7000 smartphones, as well as the Lenovo Pocket Projector.
The Vibe Shot is a super-slim Android handset designed to look like a camera, while the A7000 is the world's first smartphone that comes with Dolby Atmos technology. The third device revealed is the Pocket Projector, a tiny versatile projector that can be used on the go.
Of course, the Vibe Shot takes the cake for being the most impressive of the bunch. The phone looks like a point-and-shoot at first glance, and has a design akin to that of Sony TX cameras. It's a slim framed device, being only 7.3mm thick, and features a metal frame and Gorilla Glass 3. Of course, as the design suggests, its all about the camera, which sports 16-megapixels with six-piece modular lens. It has a full-frame 16:9 low-light sensor for shooting images in dark interiors or at night, a tricolor flash for adjusting luminosity automatically based on ambiental lighting conditions, and optical image stabilization.
The front features a 5-inch full HD display, with a relatively thin bezel to the left and right sides. The smartphone is packed with a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 processor, an Adreno 405 gpu, 3GB RAM, and 32GB space of internal storage with the option to add additional 128GB via microSD. Lastly, it ships with Android 5.0 Lollipop, and supports WiFi, LTE plus dual-SIM capabilities.
The Lenovo A7000 is a 5.5inch 720p smartphone, only 7.9mm thick, weighing in about 140grams, and featuring a MediaTek True8Core processor. Its most touted feature is Dolby Atmos, being the first smartphone ever to have this technology. Of course, to get a taste of surround-sound tech you're going to need a pair of headphones.
Like the Vibe Shot, A7000 ships with Android 5.0 Lollipop, features a dual-SIM slot and has LTE capabilitiees.
Lenovo's pocket-projector is designed to be connected to an Android compatible device, and can also stream vias Miracast or DLNA. It comes with a 50-lumen high-contrast engine, and has the ability to project images of up to 110 inches wide on any wall or surface in low-lighting conditions. The projector also has dual speakers for sound.
If you do not want to stream anything, the device has local storage in the form of a microSD card slot for up to 32GB cards. The projector has an about 2-hour battery lifespan.
The VIBE Shot will be available starting in June in countries where Lenovo smartphones are sold, starting at $349 USD. The Lenovo A7000 smartphone will be available in March in countries where Lenovo smartphones are sold, starting at $169 USD. The Lenovo Pocket Projector will be available worldwide starting in May.
